Erase una vez cuando dos británicos James English y Lawrence Williams encontraron en noche buena de 1992 Makasatu. La idea Inicial era construir una pequeña cabaña para excursionistas, pero cuando regresaron después de tres meses a la zona, encontraron que habían sido cortadas dos cientas palmeras en los alrededores. Contactaron con la familia Sanneh, quienes eran los responsables de la protección del bosque y decidieron que la única manera de proteger la zona era comprar el terreno y vallarlo. A lo largo de los años se plantaron quince mil árboles y se construyeron 15 pozos para ayudar a regar los arboles, la gente local que vivía en Makasutu antes de la llegada estaban permitidos vivir en los terrenos y se decidió integrarlos en el plan de turismo, que estaban planeando.

El campo base fue la primera fase, el proyecto tardo siente años en finalizarse, llegando a ser un imperativo el visitarlo en todas las excursiones. Muchos visitantes expresaron rápidamente el deseo de alojarse en Makasutu debido a la tranquilidad de la zona, entonces fue cuando se tomo la decisión de construir el Eco Lodge de 5 estrellas Mandina .

Two English men James English and Lawrence Williams found Makasutu on Christmas Eve 1992. The initial idea was to build a small back packers lodge, but upon returning to Makasutu after a three-month journey driving from England to the Gambia, two hundred palm trees had been cut down from the surrounding area. The Sanneh family were contacted, as were the forestry department, and it was decided that the way to protect the area was to buy the land and fence it. Fifteen thousand trees were planted over the next few years, as well as 70 wells to help water the new trees. The local people that were living and using Makasutu before James and Lawrence arrived, were left as they were on the land, and discussions were held with them, and it was decided it was possible to incorporate them into the tourism project that was planned.

Base Camp was the first area that was developed. The site took, seven years to develop. The site soon became the ‘must do’ excursion in the Gambia. Many of the visitors expressed a desire to stay in Makasutu, due to the tranquility of the area. The decision was taken to develop the site that became known as ‘Mandina’ as a five star eco lodge like no other in West Africa. Makasutu has won many environmental tourism awards since opening .If you are a nature lover and you can afford the trip it is worth while.
