“We have known Mustapha Manneh for at least 8 years; we first met him when we were looking for someone to take us birding at the bridge in Kotu. We have now become great friends and when we go to the Gambia Mustapha is one of the first people we see to arrange our birding trips.

“We would have no trouble in recommending him as a bird guide, his knowledge of birds and where they are is second to none, he is also very knowledgeable about the other flora and fauna that is found in the Gambia and nothing is too much trouble for him.

“He is also a committee member of The Gambian Bird Guide Association, a job which he takes very seriously.”

“We would like to recommend Mustapha Mennah. We had a wonderful week in The Gambia and Mustapha showed us many sites and birds that we would never have found without his help and guidance.  He is an excellent birdwatcher, extremely knowledgeable and very good company.  His skills at calling the birds is amazing and one of the many memories we have is standing in the bush and Mustapha “calling” the birds so that they came to us!  Mustapha not only knows his birds but also all areas of natural history   He has a great sense of humour and made our days very entertaining. We would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a guide in The Gambia.”

“We had a wonderful time with Ebrima and built a bird list to make our friends jealous. He was full of energy even for early morning birding, and his tour included many cultural experiences (a highlight was buying a goat!).

“Whether you’re an experienced birder or simply keen to see more of the wildlife around you, I can thoroughly recommend a trip to The Gambia with Ebrima.”

Rebecca and Phil, UK

“Ebrima was our guide for a magical trip upriver in The Gambia. We were so impressed by his knowledge of birds, his incredible skill at spotting them – and his infectious laugh!”

Steve and Angela

“During our week upriver and on the coast with Ebrima he showed non-stop enthusiasm from early morning until dusk. He was always on the lookout for birds (and other wildlife) and then made sure that everyone in the group had the opportunity to have a good view of them.”

“We came on a trip to Gambia led by Ebrima in November 2012 and still look back with pleasure on this trip with it’s many highlights. Ebrima is expert in spotting and identifying birds and making sure that you see them -and I guarantee you’ll come back with a great list of amazing birds. I recommend him to my RSPB colleagues if they mention arranging a birding trip in Gambia. We hope to return again and Ebrima will certainly be the guide that we book.”

Mark and Gill, England

Ebrima made a great job when he guided me and my family during our trip to the Gambia in 2013. Excellent skill in bird watching and I can recommend Ebrima for anyone go to The Gambia for bird watching.”
