My friend Janet and myself used Lamin’s guiding services in March 2019. As 2 women travelling on their own we were very appreciative of Lamins respectful care and attention and his quiet manner. Lamin took care to pace our schedule to meet our needs. His birding and spotting skills are excellent and his knowledge of his country and the whereabouts of specialist birds brilliant. We are currently planning our second visit to The Gambia with Lamin as our guide.

Very much looking forward to returning for some more superb birding!

Gambia is an eldorado for a birdwatcher. You can watch wherever, on the balcony, at the pool and in any park. There are birds everywhere, and often surprisingly close.
Offers on guiding come up in different settings, at market places and in Nature, watching birds. Accepting a guiding offer is very helpful and well worth the money.
We have had very good help from one birdwatching guide Lamin K. Njie. He showed himself to be extremely knowledgeable. We have used his services both in January 2014 and November 2015. His knowledge of the area and bird sounds have impressed us.
We have been staying in the Kotu area and visited Abuko Nature Reserve, Brufut and made outings to Tendaba and Georgetown.
A vivid memory that we bring back from Gambia is birds with great display of colour. In November Gambia is a green country with thick green foliage where you can see many species of raptors. Also male small birds in breeding plumage e.g. Northern red bishop, black winged red bishop and exclamatory paradise whydah.
In the end of January there are many trees in bloom and more fruits which made it easier to study sunbirds and many fruit eating species.

We give Lamin K. Njie our sincere thanks and strong recommendation. He assisted us to spot about 180 species.

We had the pleasure of birding with Lamin K Njie in 2009. His knowledge of Gambian birds, including their vocalisations and where they are likely to be found, is excellent.

We were impressed by his intelligent and sensitive use of playback, while his quiet, unassuming personality was a pleasant contrast to the overbearing nature of some other Gambian bird guides.

We would wholeheartedly recommend Lamin to anyone looking for a bird guide in The Gambia.
