Facts and myths blur easily when you ask Gambians about Makasutu. This 500-hectare piece of bush in the tiny West African Republic of The Gambia is deemed by many to be the devil’s home. They say he is there in the form of a ‘ninkinanko’, or dragon…

The devil is not the only presence there, to ward off encroachers. Along with him, djinns and giants – spectral creatures who straddle animism and Islam. They help watch over an Edenic orchard, which is thought to appear to those with a purity of heart, as they trek across the land. Mandinko tribesman tell you, in ominous undertones, that you can eat the fruit of the orchard whilst you are in the forest but you can never leave with it.Jason Florio Read more about the book here
