Holiday to the Gambia

Tuesday 17th to Tuesday 24th September 2013

Gina & I have just returned from a (second time) holiday to the Gambia. The weather was very hot and humid, but quite usual for west Africa at this time of year.

View from our balcony, facing towards the sea.

Albreda village, on the Gambia river.

St. James (Kunta Kinte) Island.

Feeding monkeys in a nature reserve.

One of the smaller sized lizards that we saw.

A most colourful example of the local bird population.

We had a wonderful time, staying in a lovely hotel which was spread over many acres, and hosting varied wildlife such as families of monkeys and peacocks, which had taken up residence in the grounds.
