Protected areas in Gambia


Hi everybody,
I am planning a trip to Gambia for next year to visit the country’s nature reserves and national parks. Does anybody know if it is possible to stay within the protected areas over night or if there are any accomodations nearby which allow quick access? Unfortunately I have not found any local contacts. The website of Gambia’s Department of Parks and Wildlife Management seems to be down and I do not know whom else to address.
Best regards,

    I suggest you try this site to make contact with someone there. Good luck.

    Try Tendaba camp, possibly the best place in the Gambia for mammals and one of the few places you can stay in/close to the park.

    I have a trip report, it is in Dutch, but it will give you some names and many pictures.

    Marakessa is nice too.

    Regards, Jeroen Verhoeff
