You are in Gambia, or maybe you are planning on a trip to Gambia. It is then highly recommended to do a nice and affordable field trip with the starting point being either Bakau or Cape Point. Of course you can choose to do this through your own travel agency or hotel, but you can also decide to do this with a local-guide. The benefits of doing this, is that you are going to do the field trip with a smaller group, by which the field trip guide has more time to explain the surroundings and/or answer questions. And most of all, it is cheaper as well.
A lot of local-guides start off with a high price; they expect you to bargain to a lower price. It should come to no surprise that there are a lot of extra costs during the field trip. This seems to be a very normal way of doing business in Gambia. But all this can also different! No extra costs, but a fixed price.
We highly recommend you to contact ‘Bob’ (Alhagie). You can get in contact with him through either: email (firstname.lastname@example.org), phone (+220 2180147) or by visiting his store (Shop 16) in Cape Point. U will be able to find his store next to other stores in the ‘Koffi Annan Street’, you can ask for Bob while you are there
Bob is working in Cape Point for years now and is mostly known for his hospitality and above all his honesty. As opposed to others, he uses fixed prices. Bargaining with him is not necessary and there are no tricks with extra added prices.
He has chosen to offer a limited amount of services. He believes quality matters and not quantity. Take a look around on this website. At each of the field trips, the price is mentioned for either 1, 2 or 3up to 8 persons. It is also possible to choose several small field trips and combine them to a one-day fieldtrip in which you can enjoy a delicious traditional local lunch and tea at Bob’s family. You will end this day at the beautiful Paradise Beach.
We hope that you will find what you are looking for on this website.
