If you want a memorable experience in The Gambia, a trip to Sita Joyeh (Baobab Island), Makasutu, and Galloya will take you through some of the country's most stunning landscapes and cultural sites.

Start your journey with a morning drive from Senegambia to Kuloro. From there, you will take a short boat ride to Baobab Island. As the name already tells you, this beautiful island has many unique baobab trees. Before embarking on our next adventure, we will stop for light snacks and coffee.

After refreshments, we will take a boat trip to Makasutu. This sacred forest is home to various wildlife, including monkeys, birds, and reptiles. During your visit, you will enjoy a boat trip, forest walk, check if a fortune teller is around and witness how a palm wine tapper does his job. It's an experience like no other!

After visiting Makasutu, we will take a boat trip back to Sita Joyeh. From there, we will head to Baobab Island Lodge for a delicious lunch and take some time to explore the nearby nature.

No trip to The Gambia is complete without experiencing the country's vibrant cultural scene. Enjoy and participate in djembe drumming on Baobab Island. This energetic performance will surely get your toes tapping and your heart racing.

Next, you will take a short drive to Galloya village, where we will tour the colourful village murals via donkey cart. It is a unique opportunity to get a glimpse into the daily lives of the locals and take photos of beautiful murals done by international and local artists. It is a unique sight to be seen in The Gambia.

Finally, we will drive back to Senegambia, where you can relax and reflect on your unforgettable journey. This trip has everything from stunning landscapes to vibrant culture. We hope you join us on this fantastic adventure!
