We stayed in Kingfisher apartment during 2 weeks beginning of November. A place like home where we felt so comfortable that the 2 weeks passed just to quickly. We came with a friend who was for the first time in Gambia and in Africa. She has loved the country and Kingfisher has certainly contributed a lot to this feeling. Charlie,...

I just love this place! Charlie, Clinton and the staff are amazing. They are so thoughtful and every little detail matters to them to make your stay the best it could possibly be. I had pneumonia when I flew out this time so had very little energy to do much therefore spent a lot of time in the apartment grounds....

The excellent reviews for Kingfishers apartments are richly deserved. I'm a non-savvy first timer to The Gambia but I fell in love with this place and have already booked to return next year. The owners, Charlie and Clinton are Brits who have blended in seamlessly with the local community but still understand the needs of travellers who may be a...

My husband and I came across Kingfishers apartments last Nov, when we went to view. We booked for 3 weeks in Feb, and have to say, it was the best decision we made. Charlie and Clinton are wonderful hosts and will interact with their guests as much or as little as you want. They put on one or two evening...

My stay at Kingfishers was fantastic. The accommodation was clean and tidy and the grounds in which the apartments are set are beautiful. Lovely during the day to relax by the poolside and well lit in the evenings. The hosts, Charlie and Clinton as well as the staff, Amadou, Sekuba and Pap were brilliant and always willing to help.

We couldn't have wished for a better place or more welcoming hosts on our first ever night in the Gambia.
