Lodge Lodge

​​​​​​

Your Anglo/Gambian hosts ( Heather and Moses) offer you deluxe, secluded, country holiday accommodation for couples and single travellers, all set in a natural rural area only 2kms from the sea on the edge of Tujereng village on Gambia’s unspoilt south coast.

We are half an hour from the airport (collection service pre-bookable at time of booking). We have built 4 large, airy octagonal lodges each with their own large private sun terraces and secluded seating all set in lovely gardens On site there is our open-sided residents’ restaurant offering a buffet breakfast, daytime drinks and snacks and a set 3-course evening menu. Help yourself to a varied buffet breakfast at the airy open-sided restaurant.

A guests’ plunge pool with submerged seats for cooling off is situated in one corner of the gardens… ideal for that evening glass of wine or a daytime cold beer.
There are sun-beds around this pool and hammocks in shady places under the trees. We now have free WiFi access.
We offer constant eco-friendly solar electricity and plentiful hot water (no power cuts and no noisy generators!) We aim to please discerning travellers who seek some easy-going, stylish but affordable comfort in a peaceful setting. We are proud to offer a fully integrated solar-powered system that pumps water, provides a complete lighting solution, hot water, fans, fridges and freezer to allow the entire site to be run from eco solutions.
