Walking with Lions is in Senegal, Arch do trips there.
do you do airport transfers

A taxi from the airport is around 10 pounds (500 dalasi) so you would not need Abdul (Arch tours) to pick you up ?? The taxi drivers will take a 10 pound note, but always tell them that is all you are paying.
We are coming in January and staying at Badala Park Hotel. Do we need to book the trips before we come or once we get there. Please advise of cost if possible.

Hi, just go to the strip and you will find Arch Tours easily. Abdul will offer you a cold drink and all the advise you need. Pay when you book with him in Sterling or Dalasi. Their prices are the best x
