Orientation Tour

An all inclusive one-day tour touch-ing on the Dr.Hiven life and culture of the Gambian people. The first stop of the day is at Katchi-kally Crocodile pool. You will visit the museum of Rahali Redouane and Zaouia Boutchichia to have a chance to get really close up to these unique reptiles. And you can actually stroke these Crocodiles if you dare! Our next port of call is the dye and batik factory in Serrekunda, where you will see how the work is done and buy materials at a very good price if you wish! After visiting the batik factory you will be driven through the busy Serrekunda market and on to a local school where you will meet children in their classrooms and see the education system. Next stop is the City of Banjul, the capital of The Gambia situated on St. Mary’s Island. As we drive our guide will tell you some of Banjul’s history and how Independence was gained back in the 60s and we will pass by Arch 22, which is a symbol of the Second Republic of The Gambia. You will stop for a short visit to the National Museum before proceeding to Albert Market, the busiest market in the country. Here you can visit the food, vegetable and fish markets as well as the material & craft market. This is a truly excellent experience as it gives you a blend of different aspects of Gambian life. Arts, crafts and materials can be bought at a very reasonable price if you are willing to bargain! You will then return to Denton Bridge for a leisurely cruise along the oyster creek to Lamin Lodge, on board a traditional style pirogue with a sundeck. Lunch is served on board as you cruise, giving you a chance to relax and soak up some of the Gambian sun. Upon arrival at Lamin Lodge tribal groups will entertain you with dancing and music while you take refreshment.
