One of the most unique and colourful festivals in The Gambia is inviting you to taste the unique cultural expression of the Kankurang and other masking traditions of West Africa and get an insight into an intangible authentic cultural heritage. It is a great opportunity not only to be present at the festival but also to explore village life, history, wildlife, and the culture of the Janjanbureh and surrounding areas.
Central River Region hides many treasures, and joining My Gambia on a trip to Janjanbureh will allow you to experience the cultural highlights, visit the local community, and take a boat trip to Baboon Island. You can put a stone and make a wish in the Stone Circles in Wassu and learn about the history and culture of Janjanbureh.
This is the right place to be if you want to experience the unique feel of traditional displays combined with an unforgettable journey.
It is all based on responsible tourism, which offers fair dispersal of the economic benefit to all included in the trip. It also expects the visitors to stay unobtrusive and learn about the cultural differences while respecting them.
Price includes transportation, accommodation (2 nights), breakfast (2), lunch (3), dinner (3), tips, entrance fees, boat trip, city tour, festival ticket, guidance, and community contributions.
