“A welness place in The Gambia”
Reviewed February 10, 2014

The Tanji Bird Reserve Eco-Camp is a different place compared to all the other places we, a birdwatching group of 14 people, have been to. The place is quiet, the rooms are clean and the manager Haddy and her staff are very dedicated to make you feel at home.The cabins/rooms are build by a Gambian architect who got inspired by Indian archtecture (no noisy fans, but a hole in the top roof, a peaceful atmosphere). Next to the dinner table are little drinking pools for the birds, lots of them us this - it's a joy to watch.There are also monkey's and we saw the longtailed nightjar in front of the hotelroom!

Heaven it is!
I was staying in a crowded hotel in the tourist area, took a walk along the beach and passed this beautiful lodges. I took a drink, had a wonderful lunch and decided to spend the rest of my holidays here. Heaven it is: no crowd nor music, relaxed people, good food, beautiful views with the ocean on one side, passing monkeys and birds on the other. And all covered with the love of Haddy, Ibrahim and staff. Thanks guys for the perfect stay! (I'll be back :)

We stopped here for lunch during a birdwatching tour of the Gambia and were blown away by the beautiful setting and fantastic service. There was a good vegetarian selection on the menu but they were also more than happy to make custom dishes and drinks if requested. Such a treat to eat our lunch overlooking the ocean!

We would definitely recommend eating or staying here if you are travelling to the Gambia.

We stopped here for a delicious lunch. The place is run by the charming Haddy Jow who made us feel very welcome. The camp overlooks the ocean and the great value accommodation is in comfortable huts built in a style sympathetic to the surroundings. A great place to kick back and relax and it is right by the Tanji Bird Reserve so a perfect base for bird watching too.

Room Tip: The room at the far end away from the entrance is the quietest.
