Makasutu forest is a holy forest near the river Gambia. After a drive to Makasuto over regular roads and bush roads, we will be received by a team in the forest. They will present a boat trip, a walk through the forest where you will probably see a group of wild baboons, and a lunch. You will learn a lot from the local guide about the trees and the animals who inhabit the forest. You will also see how fruit for the palmwine is harvested and if you want you can talk to a marabou or traditional wizard who will predict your future for a small fee (around 1 euro). He lives in a humble house in the forest.
The price for this excursion is 30 euro per group of 1 to 4 people. So if you come as a group of 2 persons, this costs only 15 euro per person. The lunch and program within the Makasutu forest is not included. This costs around 15 euro in total for the lunch, boat trip and guided tour in the forest. The excursion will take around 4 hours from start to return at your hotel.
