Abuko Nature Reserve

Abuko Nature Reserve is the main Gambia National Park, which is important because although Gambia is the tiniest country in Africa, with 11,300 square kilometers, it has 6 nature reserves, 3.7% its land. I knew that in this park you can see everything, and I was correct. bird lovers can enjoy thousands of types that seem to have no fear of anything. It is advisable to bring binoculars, but you can see at a glance over a thousand birds. Some species live only in this area, as in the case of green and violet turacos or the polluelas . Along the way are many birding sites. I will recommend you enter, because besides enjoying wonderful views, you're going to be able to see something that I have not erased from my mind. The roofs of these houses are full of some species nests with spikes (I've included a picture). One of the caretakers of the park was trying to explain what exactly is this sort of nest, but after half an hour I just got to understand that they are a kind of butterflies with which you have to be careful as they have a poison that produces a greater pain than the sting of a wasp. But Abuko Nature Reserve there are many more things. Along the route you can see several species of monkeys, yes, often hidden from tourists, so I recommend go quietly. ALSO can find all kinds of insects, spiders and some seemed to have the body electric. At the end of the tour visitors are the greatest treasure of this book, a small orphanage for animals. Here it can be seen up close, and even touch and caress, several species of monkeys. There are vultures, hyenas, etc. I focused mainly on animals, but Abuko Nature Reserve is also a paradise for plant lovers, as there are hundreds of different species that often are not found anywhere else in the Gambia.
