Estuve en Gambia en octubre de 2023 con 3 amigos m√°s (entre 23 y 28 a√Īos) y la experiencia fue de 10. Conocimos a los locales, visitamos aldeas, pueblos, ciudades y naturaleza, y conocimos la vida en Gambia con la mejor compa√Ī√≠a. La familia de Musa cuid√≥ de nosotros durante toda la estancia. Nos llevamos unos amigos de por vida y estoy segura de que volver√©.

I had a great trip with Moses to experience 'The Real Gambia', away from the regular touristy spots. We travelled for half a day up river to Janjanbureh. The drive alone was worth it, passing through numerous villages and towns of various sizes and even stopping at Moses's own family home for a look around. I got to experience these places through the eyes of a local and learnt a lot about regional customs and traditions. Everywhere we stopped the people were friendly and curious, especially the children, all wishing us a good trip. Once we arrived in Janjanbureh we took a boat trip up the river to look for hippos, after spotting baboons on the way we finally came across some hippos just as the sun was setting. Amazing the see these enormous creatures in the wild, we then had a peaceful cruise back down river by moonlight. After spending the night in a rustic yet very comfortable camp with great food, we then made our way back towards the hustle and bustle of Serrekunda, I'd definately have passed a few more days in the more remote areas if I'd only had a bit more time.

I was in Gamibia in autumn 2019 with my three sons (12, 16 and 19 years). We hired the guide Moses for two tours. The first tour went to Abuko nature reserve and Lamin lodge which was n fantastic nature experience, and the second one was a full day fishingtrip on the Gambia river. Moses is very knowledgeable and trustworthy and I can really recommend him for any one who wants a really good guide for your tours in Gambia!

We visited Gambia for the first (but hopefully not the last) time for 2 weeks in October 2022. We had read about Moses on social media and that he was a good guide so we contacted him in advance. It was such a safe feeling to have planned everything before the trip. Moses picked us up at the airport, as drew us to the airport in the end. During our stay in Gambia we did 3 trips organized by Moses. The first one was to the Bijilo National Park, also called the Monkey Park, and to the Crocodile Pool in Bakau. It was a very nice trip. The second trip we did went to the Fathala National Park in Senegal where we first went on a wonderful safari and after that also walked with lions. That was the most wonderful experience ever! The last trip we did went far away from the coast were we stayed - through inner Gambia with Georgetown (outside) as the destination. On the way we went to see the school that Moses has started many years ago. It was wonderful to see the kids and the work they are doing at the school. When we came to our destination we went on a boattrip to see hippos and chimpanzees in their wild environment. Such a wonderful experience! We stayed overnight at a cosy guesthouse by the Gambia River. We loved our trip and hope to go back one day to experience more.

My trip to Gambia was made incredible through our wonderful guide Moses. Moses’ knowledge and passion for his country is second to none, and his ability to craft an itinerary that served all our needs was faultless. Moses provided us with a really authentic experience that would be difficult to replicate elsewhere. Not only did we learn so much from our trip but we also had so much fun in Moses’ company. I would definitely recommend this company for any trips to Gambia and when I return I look forward to planning my trip with Moses again

My best friend and I travelled to the Gambia for 10 days and I found Moses online advertising tours of The Real Gambia. Instead of booking generic tours through our holiday provider we met with Moses at our hotel to discuss our requirements and he literally tailor made several days of tours for us. I can honestly say we had the most incredible time and really felt like we did see the real Gambia. We visited the school he set up, and met some of the incredible children he is helping to educate. We felt safe at all times and because we were with a local we were able to get fully immersed in the culture and the people. The experiences we had there are some of the best travel experiences I have had and I will remember them forever. If you are headed to the Gambia you must book your tours with Moses, as will not find a more authentic way of seeing this amazing country.
