We stayed here for 2 nights Facilities were basic so one has to adjust expectations The shower head didn’t work but they provided bucket. Water supply and electricity were intermittent but we were ok given this place is quite remote and we understand the challenges in getting such supplies here and the price charged for the 2 days stay here. There is lots to explore for the adventurous eg kayak, we had our own stand up paddle boards and fat bicycles Else there’s also kayak for rental, fishing, boat rides, village visits. Food was good - we chose fish, oysters for the 2 day stay. It was nice sitting in front of room admiring sunset Points to consider 1. Bring your own wines /alcohol , nuts for aperitif, fruits as they have almost none or v limited supplies. 2. Ample bug spray - being in midst of mangroves meant there were abundant bugs - I had a lot of bites but that’s part of being among nature, nothing to do with the lodge …
What a rip off, crappy breakfast well if you class chicken and bread, no eggs rubbish. Unhelpful staff, gave our room away even though booked two weeks prior.woudnt recommend to anyone. Rooms ok but no electricity overnight
There are two type of bungalows on stilts over the mangroves which are picturesque and others equally as nice behind. Good food and breakfast . Nice staff and a wooden deck where you can relax and enjoy the wildlife A nice place for a second visit. Very kind they even sent a van to pick us up as we were on bikes
Booked 5h boat trip for 5000 to Bao Balon. Got 3h visit to empty forest an 1h bird watching trip. Was done on purpose to waste my time and money. Was told that this is not the first time. Do not pay anything in advance if you feel you need to go there !
We stayed here to directly experience the mangroves along the River Gambia and it was wonderful. The rooms are not designed for hanging out in - they are basic and get very hot during the day, but the terrace of the restaurant juts out over the water and is cool, relatively bug-free, and has a spectacular view. We stayed on the terrace basically all the time we weren't going birdwatching or on boat tours (both are highly recommended). The meals at the restaurant were also excellent and the staff gives new meaning to the words friendly and helpful.
