Introduction:
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 6200.
