The village of Lamin is a little paradise that can be found in Gambia. This is a very small place that is filled with mangroves where, currently, it is complicated to find people but very easy to see thousands of birds of different species. The main oddity of this village is the "Lamin Lodge" restaurant which is made of wood that has been built in the middle of the mangroves and therefore it is suspended in mid air. Here visitors can spot all types of birds and enjoy the scenery of the Gambia River or the seafood with a cold beer. We also strongly recommend to stay there until sunset and preferably to see it from the third level of the restaurant, where the colors acquire an inexplicable intensity.
