An excellent location, with really good fishing and bird watching available locally in Khatong, on the River @ the border with Senegal. Beach is outstanding, and service and food were much better than we expected. We have stopped here for drinks several times on previous trips, but never stayed. The accommodation, is very good - considering you really are in... More

I'm only writing this review to try to give a balanced opinion of Boboi Lodge. The positives: the staff are lovely people and the food is good. Boating excursions were ready on time and worked well. The beach is superb and the swimming seemed safer here than elsewhere in Gambia, though please always pay attention to currents and dont go... More

I'm torn - on the one hand I want to keep this place a secret for myself - but I also want the place to do well. The key here is the staff, they are truly friendly without being pushy, laid back and just overall good folk. The food was the best I tasted in the country. The atmosphere of... More

Fantastic concept and location, no doubt about that. You are located right on the beach and you can fall asleep to the sounds of the waves. Bliss. On the beach, if you are lucky, you will meet a cow or two. Except for that, you are on your own. I loved it. Price wise, tree houses (very basic yet charming)... More

Stayed here for a week over the New Year in one of the basic tree houses. Don't expect the Ritz but more than you'll need to get your fix of romantic/relaxing/simple life recouperation. Staff were very friendly, interesting and helpful. Food was good enough too. Drinks well priced. And the location, just feet from the most beautiful beach I have... More

Stayed in boboi beach lodge in January this year, the staff were really friendly and very helpful. The food was delicious, and the menu had a very good choice. The best part about boboi was the location, right next to a deserted sandy beach, no one in sight except cows, and juice bars. The rooms were nice, we stayed in... More

We spent 3 nights at Boboi after an exciting trip upriver. The Location is unbeatable - 5 steps from an abandoned beach. The only thing that might disturb you while relacing at the beach are the occasional and inevitable juice bars, but absolutely hassle-free. Accomodation however is average. We booked a beach side bungalow with breakfast for 2500 Dalasis per... More

We just spent 4 nights at Boboi Beach Lodge near Kartong after a busier expereince in Fajara. Boboi has all the elements of a perfect holiday...relaxing, chilled out, not pretentious, good food (local and western), great staff and manager, friendly atmosphere and good prices. The beach was toally hassle free with long walks and great views and amazing sunsets. We... More

The pick up from the airport went smoothly and we were soon in our chalet and then straight to the beach which was deserted. We read and slept and chatted- it was very relaxing. We walked into the village a few times and along the beach both ways. My husband went bird watching which was great - loads of exotic... More

Location is right on the beach - just couldn't be better. Accommodation is a mixture of round huts, tree lodges, and a chalet block of three rooms set among palms and trees so plenty of shade. Initial impression is that the site is rather neglected and scruffy with rubble and half dead plant debris everywhere. It wouldn't take much effort... More
