Situated 2km from the sea in the unspoilt south of Gambia, 45 minutes from the airport. Set in country surroundings at the end of a rural track in a small hamlet. Opened in 2009, it offers 4 spacious deluxe lodges offering hot water showers, reliable solar powered electricity, a restaurant serving highly praised meals, a plunge pool, sun bed terrace, and extensive gardens with many seating areas and hideaways as well as a studio/gallery for art/craft workshops. Free transport to and from the beach, bikes for hire and well-marked walking trails radiating from the lodges to the unspoilt beach and inland through tree groves.

Large, light and airy lodges each beautifully furnished with a super-king size 4-poster bed boasting sprung mattress and 100% cotton sheets. Armchairs, good lighting for reading, ceiling fan and well-equipped wet room with abundant hot water and modern sanitation. A separate safe store room/walk in wardrobe is integral to each lodge for personal belongings and valuables. Each lodge has a private patio and garden with further seating, a hammock and sun-bed. A few metres walk away is a private tree sanctuary with a large drinking pool for birds and shelters for guests to sit.

We specialise in guided birding day trips, inclusive 6-day birding package, art workshops, river/sea fishing trips and offer many other escorted trips with a personal service by the owners who manage the site with their staff team.
