West Africa Cruise on the Pegasus

The West Africa cruise on the 45 passage Pegasus with just 29 on board was one of the best cruises I have ever completed. The Gambia is a bird lovers paradise and the 3 hour excursion to Bao Bolong Wetland Reserve was one of the best ever. The 5K walk in the Kiang West National Park was amazing. The people and sites of Senegal and The Gambia are well worth the trip!!
