A boat tour through the winding Gambia River surrounded by True Mangroves is an absolute highlight. While silently floating through the waterscape, one is able to see various species of rare birds. The True Mangroves are populated by oysters which enriches the Gambian Oyster industry.
After the boat tour, you will be able to eat in a house that was built on stilts by a German emigrant and enjoy the beautiful view on Gambia River and the True Mangroves.
