The Cotton Trail

Are you interested to see the process from growing cotton to creating beautifully handmade woven cotton material? By joining the Cotton Trail, travellers will experience The Gambia off the beaten track. Travelling Far East to meet the farmers and experience Basse, stopping by in Janjanbureh, another important town up-country and experiencing the river and its animals and birdlife, the UNESCO-listed stone circles, having experience with the Women Initiative in Njau before spending the night in Kaur. The journey will end in Gunjur, where the weavers are located, and travellers can enjoy the tranquillity of Footsteps Eco-Lodge. Along the journey, the travellers learn about the culture, way of living and the history and importance of cotton through generations.

Our initial story is based on our long-term activities in the field of education, sustainable tourism and knowledge exchange. 
We live and breathe The Gambia and we are here to bring that experience to you. 
We intend to put The Gambia on a world tourism map as a destination, which can offer a wide range of sights, tastes, sounds and feelings.
