Gambia beach and bird-watching holiday

edited September 2010 in - West Africa
I am interested in visiting The Gambia for its beaches and also the bird-life (the one's with feathers). Can anyone who has been comment on which beaches or areas are great for spending a week or so; and then where should I go for some up-river nature excursions to see the birdlife I have heard of. Any direct experience would be much appreciated. Thank you

    Avoid using Tilly's Tours based in Kololi. They ripped us off earlier this year. Kololi Beach/Bijilo Forest are beautiful, so is Kotu Beach. Can certainly recommend the Kairaba Hotel.
