Between the ebola scare and political unrest, the Safari Garden is closed. Hope that it will open again but for now, it is just a memory. The wonderful couple who used to manage it (but not own it) have opened a new eco-lodge on The Gambia's south coast (Sandele), and I don't k

We visited Safari Gardens last October (only just found time to write a review) before the tourist season had started. Building work was taking place to refresh some of the rooms and build a new bar area by the pool. This work was reportedly finished by the start of the season. A

Response from yelyah71, Volunteer Business Adviser at Safari Garden Hotel
Responded Feb 22, 2014
Hi, we are really sorry that you didn't enjoy your stay. As the staff explained during your time here there was a leak in the water pipes that did cause problems with the water supply in the rooms. I hope that our offer of a days reduction on accommodation costs and a complimentary meal went someway to compensating you. We are constantly making changes to improve our guests stay and although, as is usual in The Gambia, there can be issues with electric and water supply we try our best to overcome these and pride ourselves on offering our guests a friendly and genuine Gambian experience.
