This tour was quite an adventure. We were met off the cruise ship by our Black and White safari team. After putting my wheelchair up on the roof of the minivan, we proceeded along some highway and some very rough, unpaved roads to a Gambian family's compound. We were dressed in "African" clothing then proceeded to a very busy, colorful market to purchase food for lunch. This was then cooked, with our participation, outside on braziers. The results were delicious and it was an excellent way of getting a feel for the Gambian family's way of life. We would definitely recommend this tour.

I never write reviews...never...however today was just superb! Our day starting with a timely pick up from our hotel and a drive to Sally’s house. From there we were given optional traditional dress and taken to Sally’s local market where we bought food of our choice for our cooking class. We chose 2 dishes, both fish and 2 types of juice. When we got to Sally’s we went about preparing and making lunch from gutting the fish to pounding the vegetables. We cooked outside, in traditional style and when we were done preparing (which took a while)we played with Sally’s children and their neighbours. At the end of the day we all sat and ate together what we had made and felt a part of Sally’s family.

The most wonderful experience we have had since being here! Black and white safaris has been great and we have avoided any problems.

We're so pleased that we had booked all of our tours with Black and White and not with our tour operator (TC). They were waiting for us at the airport to take us to our hotel, and had arranged for us to go into their office the next day to sort out an itinerary for our 10 days trip.
Unfortunately we both ended up with a stomach bug on the third day, but Armstrong worked around us to make sure we didn't miss out on anything.
Our tour guide was YaYa for 90% of the time, and he was great. Such a lovely warm person, who was happy to answer any of our questions, and made a special effort to include our requests to see Djembes being made. We also were invited to his home to do the Gambian Home Cooking tour, which was an incredible experience.
PomPom our driver was a legend. We always felt safe, and they were both so professional.
Our favourite place was Makasutu. If you're going to Gambia, go there! It's the most tranquil, peaceful place I have ever visited, and YaYa made sure we got there before any others arrived.
Ya Ya and PomPom went that extra mile on every trip to make sure we were happy. Black and White saved our honeymoon from being a disaster, so thank you!
Armstong was excellent at correspondence before we flew out, and Stuart handled all the deposit over in the UK.
Black and White is a superb company to go with, so if you are thinking about booking a few tours, choose them, as they are a local firm, with all local knowledge,but extremely professional.

This is an absolutely first Class trustworthy company

COVID has hit hard yet they still keep smiling

Armstrong always contacts you even in the uk before you arrive

He will get you at the airport if needed and you are very safe on all of the trips , we have used them now for many years and they have become friends

A go fund me page had been set up to raise much needed funds to help local communities

Gambia is a bit off the beaten track but the weather and the people are lovely well worth going .. see the real Gambia with Black and white safaris

Black and while , we will see you again , keep up the good work for the communities you support

Thank you
