About
this is a wonderful opportunity to see wildlife in it's natural habitat and our guide will make every effort to ensure you see as much as possible keeping your safety in mind. How many places are there that you can see chimps in their normal habitat up close? Kuntaur Island is in the Gambia river and the boatride is a peaceful journey along this beautiful river alive with wildlife.The Gambia is a birdwatchers' paradise and our guide has travelled extensively to find the best birding sites. You will also visit parts of The Gambia you would otherwise not see and experience the lives of the warm and friendly people who will be delighted you have visited their villages. The ferry ride is an interesting experience in itself seeing people in their colourful clothes laden with goods -mainly carried on their heads - going about their normal lives. A visit to Helping charity lodge gives money for education and local projects on the north bank where they rarely see tourists.

We booked Dallu for four guided tours (although one was kindly offered for free as an introduction) and he certainly disappoint. We travelled with my parents who are now in their 70s so we didn’t go on long walks or difficult journeys however still managed to see 130 species over the four days. The first trip was an introduction walk around the Kotu area, immediately we were impressed with Dallus knowledge as he pointed out numerous birds and used calls to bring them out of cover. The second trip we visited pirang pools and Farsuto forest. His driver bully bully was amazing particularly with the state of the Gambian roads! He was patient with us even when we couldn’t see quite obvious birds in the foliage! We saw some special species such as long tailed nightjar and greyish eagle owl, an amazing experience. The next trip took us to marakissa. Again another fantastic day adding many more species to our ever growing lists. The final trip was to fajara golf course, we managed to pick up special species such as violet backed starling, golden tailed woodpecker and great views of yellow fronted tinker bird. I will certainly be back and booking Dallu for many more experiences!

I did a 10day birding trip with Dallu and it was excellent from Day one to 10.
We travelled from the coast to Georgetown ( inland) over the North bank and back allong the South bank of the Gambia river.
Everything was perfect organised by him ( accommodations,boottrips ... etc)
His knowledge of the birds and culture was unbelievebly good.

From all my previous trips this was the best .

I will recommend Dallu Barry to everyone who want to vissit the Gambia.
I think he's one of the best you can get .

A full day trip with Dallu and excellent knowledgeable wildlifeguide who made every effort to ensure I got the maximum from the day. Armed with binoculars and Dallu's birding scope we had a comfortable drive to Marakissa where our driver dropped us off by one of the walking paths. Even on the drive there Dallu spotted and identified birds from the vehicle that I could barely see. The driver would stop for us to get a good view. Walking slowly along the path we saw a fascinating array of interesting birds. We walked to the lodge with the stream in front of it and got a close-up view of of a crocodile and a monitor lizard. We took a canoe along the creek - very relaxing and peaceful. By the lodge are sources of water so we spent a long time watching the colourful birds and butterflies coming to the water and had a lovely lunch. It was so enjoyable that we went back the next day and met up with 2 other people we had met the previous day and went on to Farasuto Pirang and Sitah Joyeh. I cannot recommend Dallu as a bird guide too highly.
