- Incredible sensation of nearness to lions
- Unique take on life in Gambia and Senegal
- See an immense variety of Fathala wildlife
Of all the animal experiences featured in the Tinggly collection, nothing can top this opportunity to spend a day walking with lions in Gambia, and immersing yourself in the stunning wildlife at the Fathala nature reserve. Offered as an extension to a Senegal Safari, you’ll travel by land rover to the Banjul - Barra ferry crossing. Here you’ll mingle with everyday travellers and traders, a colourful mix of friendly people and an experience in itself! Then it’s on to the nature reserve, and the company of lions...
Accompanied by your guides, you’ll spend the day exploring the area, encountering zebras, giraffes, antelopes, rhinoceroses and ostriches along the way before the main event. You’ll be given some brief training, and then walk alongside a couple of lions, watch them at play climbing trees, and learn about how they live here. This Gambia experience is guaranteed to give you a Tinggly feeling, the hairs on the back of your neck will stand up as you stand just a few inches away from the Kings of the Jungle. Nothing else comes close. Now let’s hear you roar!
