Introducing River Gambia National Park (Baboon Islands)
River Gambia National Park (also known as Baboon Island) consists off five islands in the Gambia River. It’s home to a primate protection project that helps once-captured chimpanzees to live in the wild again. Visitors are not allowed to land on the islands, but touring them by boat is pleasant enough. Boat trips can be arranged by all Georgetown hotels (around US$125 per pirogue), or you can go to Kuntaur and hire a pirogue (around US$10 for a four-hour trip).
