Before entering the area around the crocodile pond, be sure to visit the museum that tells so much of our history.
On your way from the museum to the pond, notice the beautiful baobab trees.
At the pond are around 100 Nile crocodiles. They are well fed, but you can't trust a crocodile, so pay attention to the local guides and what they say: Never touch the head of the crocodile. And only touch a crocodile if the local pond guide tells you it is okay. They know what they talk about, since they all have 10 fingers.
Ask at the hotel reception for guidance on how to find the crocodile pond.
In the Gambia, Mandingo is spoken as a first language by 38% of the population, Fula is spoken by 21.2%, Wolof / Serer by 18%, Jola by 4.5%. Several other languages are also spoken. Gambian Sign Language is used by the deaf.
But...English is the main language used for official purposes and in education. Everybody speaks English in the Gambia.
In general you don't have to round up people for the trisp. Just go to the reception and we will find you a competent guide: Be it for birdwathcing, city walks, reptiles or nature in general.
Just ask us: We have it!
