During a trip to West Africa i visited a few places in The Gambia including the capital Banjul,Gambia river,Serekunda and Fort Bullen but a walk in Tanji Nature reserve stood out as my favourite.
This reserve is on a stretch of unspoilt coastline and includes over 250 bird species and3 types of monkey.The Abuko reserve also has Nile crocodiles living wild.
