Jang Jang Bureh – 2 Nights 3 Days

DAY 1

Early morning pick up by a fully air-conditioned mini bus at around 06:30 am. We will drive to the city of Banjul, where we will board the ferry for a short scenic cruise to Barra on the North Bank, where we will explore Fort Bullen, a famous anti-slavery monument and classic 18th Century British fort.

After exploring Fort Bullen, we will board our air-conditioned mini bus and begin our 315 km journey into the heartland towards Georgetown Island.

We then drive to Farafenni, a major commercial town close to the border of Senegal, and visit the local market-day called lumo in Mandinka. During our journey towards Wassu stone circles we will stop in the bush for lunch packs and also visit a local Gambian family to learn how life is lived locally. From Wassu we will board a large local pirogue for a 4-5 hours cruise trip, meandering through the Baboon Island where it is possible to see hippos, monkeys, crocodiles and numerous bird species.

The end of our day’s journey is at Jang Jang Bureh Camp, a lovely eco-culture lodge along the edge of the fresh water of River Gambia. A well-deserved evening of rest and relaxation is yours to enjoy as we dine in the open air and enjoy the eventful local village entertainment.

DAY 2

 We wake up for an early morning breakfast, and then we board the pirogue boat for our second day boat trip to Karantaba via Kunicilling. Lunch will be served on boat. Kunkilling Forest Park and Tankandama Community Forest combine to form approx. 200 hectares of protected land situated on the south bank of the Gambian river in the Central River Region. Four neighboring villages Boraba, Serekunda, Bukari Kunda and Korop co-manage the forest together with the Ministry of Forestry and Environment. As of May 2005, 186 bird species were recorded on this new site. With 70% of bird species classified as indicators by Birdlife International, this area meets the requirements for “Important Bird Area” in the Upper Guinea Region of West Africa. From the Kunkilling Forest Park we proceed cruising to Karantaba visiting the historical monument. From there, we cruise back to Jang Jang Bureh Camp for dinner and attend the village fire festival in the night.

DAY 3

After early morning breakfast we will cross the river to Georgetown Island for city tour visiting the slave buildings. Georgetown is the original administrative settlement for the British imperial establishment in West African colonies during the 18th Century. After a short tour of this quaint historic building, we will board our waiting bus and drive along the south bank Trans-Gambia highway to begin our homeward journey. Along the way we will visit a village school and a rural hospital. From there, we will proceed to Kalagie for our lunch buffet and entertainment. The last stop is at Brikama Craft Market. Craft markets outside the hotels offer a large collection of antique masks, carvings, batik products, hand woven fabrics, leather work and jewelry. Prices for these products are affordable, and the whole process of picking what you like for the right price is an experience not to miss. The fun is in the conversation. Locals often engage visitors in conversation whilst negotiations go on. In the end both the buyer and the seller come out acquainted through a healthy dialogue of a cultural exchange This is typical of Gambian hospitality. We then drive back to our hotels by 06:00p.m.

This excursion with RM Tours includes all the meals and drinks.
