Tendaba Camp & Kiang West National Park


Kiang West National Park is one of the largest and most important wildlife reserves in the Gambia. It was declared a national park in 1987 and is located on the south bank of the River Gambia.

The park  provides habitats for various birds, reptiles and wildlife

An easy-to-reach viewpoint, within the boundaries of Kiang West National Park on the south bank, is Toubab Kollon, from where an escarpment follows the river. Its view over woodlands makes a fine spot for watching birds, particularly early in the morning.

Tendaba Camp in Tendaba village has been open since the 1970s and is the most established base for trips to the national park.
