The Ninki Nanka Trail was created in the 1980’s to open up Gambia to tourism through the Gambia river. The trail is based on a responsible, collaborative tourism approach, in a collaborative way, and gives clear benefits to local communities as well as tourism stakeholders in the area.71
While following the trail, tourists can discover both natural and cultural heritage and meet with local communities to learn about their ICH (such as traditional dances, mask traditions and local rituals).
