We couldn't have wished for a better place or more welcoming hosts on our first ever night in the Gambia. Our experience got off to a great start when Assan (who Charlie and Clinton had organised to pick us up from the airport) helped us into the back of his open topped jeep, handed us a cold beer and cranked...

I've just been sat with my other half reminiscing about our wonderful time in The Gambia. We came home in March and the tans are fading, but the memories aren't. One such memory was the afternoon we spent with Charlie and Clinton, the owners of the Kingfishers Apartments. We didn't stay there but we did get talking to them at... More

Excellent stay at King fishers apartments! Made to feel very welcome from before we even arrived. Charlie and Clinton are fantastic and very helpful with tips, organising trips, changing money and much more! Felt very safe, at King Fishers Apartments and only a short taxi/walk to main strip of eating area and a stone's throw away from the beach! If... More

Thank you for your kind words. It pleases us to have younger travelers to The Gambia and that you enjoyed your time here. Maybe you will inspire other over 25's to give it a go. We hope so. There is so much on offer here in terms of culture and weather and just a short flight from the UK! Hope... More

We booked here for our 3rd visit to The Gambia, as it was recommended by friends and wanted an apartment rather than hotel. We were delayed on our outbound flight by 6 hours due to the weather in Manchester! We e.mailed them to let them know as they had sorted us out a taxi from airport. Well when we finally... More

Thank you sharing your experience here at Kingfishers. So glad that you enjoyed your holiday. It is our hope that others will follow your lead and try smaller accommodation like Kingfishers rather than large hotels. There is so much to see and feel a part of here in The Gambia that is sometimes missed in larger establishments. Thank you for... More

I was at home. The owners are all friendly and always worry that you are well and you have everything you need . When you travel to a country somewhat inhospitable always good to find a place where you feel at home.

There's not a lot I can add to my review from last year. Have recently returned from a 3 week holiday at Kingfishers, it is really a gem, it's home from home everything you need is there. Charlie and Clinton the hosts are amazing and the staff, Pap,Amadou,Seikoba and Penda thank you very much you are all brilliant.

This was our third visit to the kingfishers apartments, it was a brilliant holiday,Charlie and Clinton are fantastic hosts, and do their utmost to make your stay extra special. They have a fantastic staff who equally strive to make sure you have everything that you need. The apartments are spotlessly clean and comfortable. Well done Kingfisher Team
