The Senegambia Beach Hotel is popular with many bird watchers as a base from which to discover the bird life in The Gambia. This is not only due to the comfort of this hotel, but especially to the many birds in the spacious hotel garden. Before you even take one step outside the hotel, you can check dozens of birds off your list. Even before you have finished your first glass, you have probably already seen Black Kite, Shikra and Cattle Egret. The Hamerkop nest is a sight in itself and Hooded Vulture are fed once a day.



The hotel is located in Kololi on the tourist attraction 'the Strip' and is only accessible to hotel guests who have booked here.
