The forest park of Kunkilling
is located in a village called Kerr Serrekunda on the southern
bank of the River Gambia, opposite the eastern end of Janjangbureh
island, and within 10 minutes by car of Sankulay Kunda. Its
geographical coordinates are N 13° 31' 28'' W 14° 42' 0''.
An excellent example of riverine type woodland has in recent years
been set up as a conservation area.
The area is well worth paying a visit for bird
watching where you can spot red-necked falcons perching
on the rhun palms and African finfoots scratching around for
food around the screw pine trees. Other species includes Adamawa
Turtle Doves and the Banded Martin.
There is a fee of about £3 to enter the Kunkilling Forest
and tickets are available from the Gambia's Forestry Division
office on the north island. They can be reached on tel: 567
