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.
