Guided Bird Watching Tours to Kotu Creek, Kotu Ponds and Fajara Golf Course with Bird Tours Gambia

Kotu Ponds

Although an unexpected choice of a birding destination, the Kotu Ponds, (actually Kotu Sewage Farm!), strangely combines functionality with beauty, and it is rich in bird life such as White-faced Whistling Ducks, Spur-winged Plover, Greater Blue-eared Glossy Starling, Vinaceous Dove, Black-winged Stilt, Cattle Egret, Sacred Ibis and African Jacana all visit here. Black Crake may be spied delicately walking on the Water Hyacinths. You may also see Shikra and Rose-ringed Parakeets. Vultures can be seen picking over rubbish. Despite the fact that this is a sewage area, smell is hardly discernable, so don’t be put off.
