It is more than just another guidebook. Craig and Linda are well known in The Gambia as the country's leading ecologists - they write regular newspaper columns, are closely involved with government wildlife initiatives and they have recently formed their own conservation project, The Makasutu Wildlife Trust. They don't ram wildlife down your throat - it's perfectly possible to use this book and have some great meals and days out and to never take notice of any flora or fauna - but for those who want to see more, they open up possibilities for observing The Gambia's renowned, burgeoning, but increasingly endangered wildlife, sometimes in the most unexpected places.
That said as it is written by authors who live in the country it is also an excellent guide for the medium to long-stay visitor also.
Read fully before leaving if possible! (I found out some places too late!) If you plan to explore a particular area, this book will get you there with a few ideas but i'd suggest you get a more detailed guide for your own needs.
