Sunset River Shoot

Cameratrip: Sunset on the river.

See the Gambia sunset by river boat – one of the tmany hings to do in Gambia and, perhaps, one of the most beautiful and relaxing. You leave from the fishing village of Kartong and spend the afternoon in a dugout on the Alahein River, having lunch in a Senegalese river camp.

It’s a lovely way to spend an afternoon (or morning if you prefer) and a big favourite with our guests. Meander down a small river estuary and cross to Senegal where you can have some lunch at a small side lodge. On the way you’ll see some of the most beautiful scenery in the country as well as birds galore.

You can capture the early evening 7 pm sunset on the river if you take the afternoon trip. Our itinerary is designed to put you where the pictures are, this holiday will provide you with stunning photographs and timeless memories.
