The SpaceHistorically this region of the Gambia (along the boarder with Senegal to the South) belonged to a family of the Madinka tribe named Bayo. One member, S. Bayo, had worked for nearly his entire life to miraculously protect the property and environment from poachers, villagers cutting trees, and foreign investors wanting to sand mine the African coast. In 2010, I met Sabaty during a trip to West Africa while helping on a non profit project. At that time, Mr Bayo was exhausted and in need of help to continue to protect this still natural part of the coast. Bringing some investment and some connection to the global community, we worked together to develop a small lodge and to join with others interested in environmental preservation. This hidden treasure is located on the southern coast of the Gambia near the Senegalese boarder between Gunjur & Kartong. The place, location and environment is truly spectacular and is a short distance from the "Sacred Rocks" which still host many traditional rituals. You'll be staying beside the village of Madina Salaam which is only a short distance by foot through paths leading through forests full of monkeys and birds. Your beautiful room is steps away from pristine beaches and quaint, traditional, African village life. This magical getaway offers international comfort (clean and comfy beds), tasteful, African design, quiet (only the sound of the ocean). The room is run on solar power and Eco- all the way! Bike, hike, swim, dance, drum, fish, run, do art, make friends! I offer a simple menu that includes a variety of international and African options (and many vegetarian choices). Neighbors grow much of our the food I use to cook so it's 100% organic, local and fresh. If you like fishing you can have a go at it - (night fishing is best) and perhaps I'll cook what you catch for dinner (Ps. my neighbor can lend you his fishing rod if you need one). I can help you discover the sweetest spots in the country to explore. Some of my first visitors have told me that my place was their favorite spot in all of the country. Please join me for an unforgetable stay in West Africa. Public transport is available from the highway nearby or taxi's can be called anytime. Let me know in advance and I'll pick you up from the airport (1500 D). Your room includes a mosquito nets, solar powered lighting, a good mattress and quality pillows! Light, sunny spaces with wooden furniture and the sound of the ocean in the background. A lite breeze keeps the place generally bug free. There are many exciting cultural activities I can connect you to and exciting places to visit from bustling markets to local soccer games, cultural festivals and great music and dance workshops. I love good dance and music and I am well connected in this area should you be interested in exploring this aspect of Africa further. There is also great bird watching close by and endless nature walks. I also have bikes I can lend you to explore neighboring villages. I have strong connections to non-profits and community leaders that are deeply involved in making a difference in the lives of people in this part of the world. In particular, I support and work with traditional healers, support clean water projects, and community education. I am committed to positive community development and invite anyone who wants to offer education, wisdom, mentorship in any area to visit and join the community. COME visit! If you need a pick up from the airport please inform us and we will organize a driver to come get you. This costs an additional 1,500 dalasis or roughly $40 dollars. I am not always on the property as I travel regularly but I have an awesome local staff that helps manage the place when I am away from home. Either way you will be happy and relaxed. You can see other guest reviews by searching for Nemasu Ecolodge on the internet. We are located on the best beach in the country! It is a quiet retreat in a traditional and real African village. This is a place for tourists that want to see the hidden side of this country. Taxi is the best way to arrive. Within the community walking or renting a bike to getting around easily is fun. Otherwise, public buses from nearby Gunjur are available though departure times are not predictable. Bring a flashlight Swimsuit Mosquito Repellent (even though we have few of them) Sunscreen Books to leave behind for our community library Guest AccessIf you need a pick up from the airport please inform us and we will organize a driver to come get you.

The SpaceSurrounded by beautiful nature, close to the ocean, amazing bird life and located in a small village where there are no tourists - this is the best place to relax. Everything runs on solar and is "off-grid" and we try to live as eco-friendly as possible. Guest AccessBathroom with flush toilet, kitchen with a single gas burner, all kitchen utensils, bed linen, towels, use of donkey and donkey cart. Basically we will offer to share anything we have that you may need and which will help you have a fun and comfortable stay with us. When you go back we want you to feel as if you have really lived in the village and not just visited the place as a tourist. Interaction with GuestsWe only rent the place out when we are not there ourselves because you will be living in our house. But you will share the compound with the person who is in charge of looking after it and all the animals. He will help you with everything that you need (and you will need help unless you're from the area and fluent in Mandinka), but you will have all the privacy you want as well. As there are no restaurants in the village you'll get everything cooked at home (as your own private restaurant) unless you like to cook yourself. No extra charge, just pay for the groceries. The NeighborhoodWe're a Gambian-Swedish family so we know this country well and we all fell in love with this village named Sambuyang the first time we went there. It has a rural pace but at the same time it is connected to the urban areas. The walk to the beach is the most beautiful we've ever seen in the Gambia. It's a relatively new village so there is an open spirit as many people are new settlers from nearby countries or the countryside. Getting AroundLocal buses can be accessed on the highway which is about 20 minutes walk from our house. Renting of car and driver can be arranged and for shorter trips you can use our donkey cart (driver included) Other Things to NoteIf you are in the mood for a cold beer and lovely dinner we especially recommend Foosteps Eco Lodge which is not far away at all. You can reach Brikama (Gambias second largest town) in less than 30 minutes with car. The airport is approximately 40 minutes drive away and we will help arrange for someone to pick you up if you want to. (website hidden)

The SpaceAlthough only an hour from Banjul airport, this very unusual wood and thatch house is refreshingly far from the hassle of the Gambian tourist strip. You fall asleep to the distant roar of the ocean and wake to the strange dawn chorus of tropical birds. All services are ecological. We have our own bore hole for water, solar power for electricity and the toilets are non-flush self-composting. The house is tall and airy with mesh windows and a shady verandah runs the length of the house. In addition, there is a separate shaded seating area ('bantaba') with sunloungers and hammocks. The house is fully self catering with its own kitchen area and 3-ring gas hob but all meals and refreshments are available at the excellent eco-lodge restaurant a two minute walk away. Transport is by bicycles (we provide two free of charge), bush taxi or car and driver which are easily arranged on an ad hoc daily basis. The house is private, though for practical purposes (daily cleaning and 24 hour security) is under the umbrella of Footsteps Eco-lodge with its genuinely friendly and helpful staff. The house has a large open plan living area with kitchen at one end and comfortable seating at the other. Leading off, there are two double bedrooms with king size beds and a bathroom with gravity shower (hot and cold), wash basin and self-composting toilet. Power supply is solar and runs off batteries. This is sufficient for lighting, fans, and for charging mobile phones, laptops etc., but it will not support power-hungry appliances such as hair-dryers, electric shavers etc. Guest AccessGuests have exclusive access to the whole house, the private garden and 'bantaba' with sun-loungers and hammocks. They also have free access to all the amenities of Footsteps Eco-Lodge, including bar, restaurant, fresh water plunge pool, bird hides, table tennis, badminton, beauty and massage parlour, and organisational facilities (arrangement of activities, transport and trips). BUT PLEASE NOTE: THE LODGE IS CLOSED FOR REFURBISHMENT FROM JUN - OCT 2015 BUT SELF-CATERING IS STILL POSSIBLE, STAFF ARE STILL IN ATTENDANCE AND A PERSONAL COOK COULD BE ARRANGED. IF YOU ARE INTERESTED, PLEASE LET US KNOW. Interaction with GuestsWe are not present ourselves but all our guests are treated as though they are guests of the eco-lodge and have the same access to facilities and staff. Guests are met at the airport (£20 each way per party of 4). FOR THE PAST TWO YEARS WE HAVE BEEN SUPPORTING A SMALL NURSERY SCHOOL IN A NEARBY VILLAGE AND IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO VISIT, WE CAN EASILY ARRANGE IT. The NeighborhoodWe love: the feeling of being in the middle of the African countryside yet with all amenities close at hand; the proximity of deserted ocean beaches (walking and swimming); strolling to the beach to watch the amazing sunsets; the friendliness of staff and locals contrasted with the endless harassment of the tourist areas; the stimulation of meeting other guests if you want it, the privacy of your own place if you don't; the vibrancy and colour of African life, but only as much as you want; sitting on the verandah in the evening with a cold drink; learning about African life - visiting schools and hospitals (we support, and try and raise money for a local nursery school in Sambuyang village); generally chilling out. If you feel more active and adventurous: you can hire fishing equipment from the lodge and fish from the beach; you can take boat trips into Senegal; you can visit the 'reptile farm' and handle pythons; have drumming lessons; learn to tie-dye batiks; take guided nature walks and make cultural visits (e.g. go to a naming ceremony); visit craft centres; learn about Gambian cooking; the possibilities are endless. Getting AroundWe provide two bikes for use of guests and others can be hired. Otherwise bush taxis run pretty much everywhere - they are cheap but often crowded. We think best option is hiring a car and driver (approx. £20 a day). This can be arranged at the lodge or we can provide phone numbers. Other Things to NoteGuests are asked not to smoke in the house. House is suitable for children, though under fives would need close supervision. POWER SUPPLY IS SOLAR AND DOES NOT SUPPORT POWER HUNGRY APPLIANCES SUCH AS HAIRDRYERS, TOASTERS OR ELECTRIC KETTLES. Internet access available at the lodge, not available in the house. 2 mountain bikes provided for free use of guests (good for cycling round the sandy lanes and to the beach).

The SpaceNemasu eco-lodge is located on the best beach in Gambia- peaceful, beautiful & inspiring. We have a range of accommodation options- our Airbnb price is for one of our Roundhouses- African style, beautiful with king size bed, en-suite, mahogany furniture, and views of the ocean. We have a great restaurant, bar & activities. Only 45 minutes from the airport! We have a range of activities including drum lessons, bird watching, body boarding on one of our free boards, bike riding, swimming, or wandering around the village of Medina Salam- a peaceful, truly African rural village. Our restaurant is full of locally sourced organic food; we even have a hand made mud oven that we bake food with. We have a bar- so be free to sit in a hammock, watch the sunset with your favorite cocktail! We are on several hectares of healthy forest. We have monkeys visit, the occasional antelope, and have planted many trees including mango, coconut, and cashew, as well as many flowers and vegetables. Interaction with GuestsWe are at Nemasu usually during the winter - November to April. The NeighborhoodSome 30km south of Serekunda, and only a 20 min. walk from Nemasu, Gunjur is a small coastal town but one of the largest fishing centres in The Gambia. It's fascinating to walk amid the villagers- cleaning & smoking fish; repairing nets; pulling their handmade mahogany boats into & out of the sea. It's a photographers dream! Kartong is a calm little village, 10km south of Gunjur, and about an hours' walk from Nemasu in the other direction. It's one of Gambias best kept secrets, a picture postcard village where gigantic palm trees sway over women with children on their back and men on wobbly bicycles.

      In its lush tropical garden of citrus, mango, banana and flowering shrubs, this unusual house provides a perfect getaway in the African bush. It offers closeness to nature, especially the rich bird life, but also the amenities of a friendly Eco-lodge (Footsteps) a 2 minute walk away. These include an excellent bar and restaurant, fresh water plunge-pool, and friendly, welcoming staff to help with activities and trips. (NOTE: THE LODGE IS CLOSED FOR REFURBISHMENT FROM MAY - OCT 15 BUT SELF-CATERING IS STILL POSSIBLE AT OUR HOUSE AND A COOK COULD ALSO BE ARRANGED. CONTACT US IF YOU'RE INTERESTED). The house is off the beaten track and a world away from 'package holiday land'. Sandy paths lead to the local village in one direction, the sea and its beautiful deserted beaches in the other. Both are about a mile away - a half hour walk, or 10 minutes on the bikes provided. With its high thatched roof and shuttered windows, the house is relatively cool and airy. A shady verandah runs along the its front and beyond this lies a thatched seating area (bantaba) with sunloungers and hammocks. All services in the house and lodge are ecological. Gunjur is 1 hour from Banjul airport and approx. 40 minutes from the main tourist areas. Local transport is by walking, cycling, donkey or bush taxi, but driver and car can easily be hired. With the the ocean surf as a distant background, the ambiance is peaceful and relaxing. With its 2 double bedrooms and simple self-catering, the house makes a perfect base for unwinding, and for walking, bird-watching, beach-fishing, and exploring the surrounding area. Rental includes daily cleaning, linen and towels but please bring your own beach towels. Nightly and weekend rates pro rata. We arrange airport transfers at time of booking unless requested otherwise. The cost is £40 return per party of 4 or less, payable at Footsteps EcoLodge. One way cost is half the return. Extra person £5 each way. Rental Payment: by cheque or bank transfer. £100 deposit, remainder 8 weeks before departure. Gunjur is typical of a larger Gambian village. It sprawls over quite a large area, with mosque, church, several schools, health clinic and colourful market. There are small shops and workshops, a modest supermarket, street hawkers and and local type restaurants. The streets are dusty, potholed, and muddy in the rainy season; the people are colourful, friendly and often curious. It is well worth taking a tour around the village, perhaps with a guide - go to a local school if you can. You'll find limited resources, but impressive dedication; large family groups that really look after each other ; and more children with big appealing eyes than you've ever seen in your life. There are huge mango trees; old men with wrinkled faces; women with babies on their backs; cows, donkey-carts and bicycles - but barely a car in sight. Gunjur fishing village is right on the beach and bustling in a different way - brightly painted pirogues, fisherman selling their catch or mending their nets, and an open air fish-smoking operation that leaves you smelling like a kipper. Kartong, going south towards Senegal, is more compact than Gunjur and almost pretty in an African kind of way. But don't miss the Reptile Farm just before the village. Run by a Frenchman, it houses a representative collection of Gambian snakes and other reptiles, and is not only educative but thoroughly engaging. It is hands on (but only if you want it to be) and you may find yourself doing the unthinkable before you leave - such as holding a large python in your hands and letting it wrap itself around your neck. Other trips include Sunday performances of African dance and drumming at the Rainbow Bar in Sanyang; visits to one of the Nature Reserves where monkeys abound; or calling in to the sacred crocodile pool where you may get to stroking a crocodile. Footsteps itself can arrange many activities - batik-making, African drumming, bird watching, fishing from the beach (including hire of gear). The staff will make suggestions to suit your interests. There is free badmington and table tennis. If you are interested in the natural world, go on the early morning bush-walk with Lamin. He'll not only show you birds and animals but will teach you about the medicinal and practical uses of the trees and shrubs that you see. There is a beautician on site to help you relax with beauty treatments and massage. Longer excursions can be arranged. The easiest way of travelling is to hire a car and driver (about ÂŁ20 a day). The drivers know their way about and generally smooth the way in a culture which is different from our own. Brikama,, 30 minutes by car, is a busy but colourful African town with an interesting market and craft market. It is noisy, dusty, vibrant and not to be missed. The tourist strip (Senegambia) is worth a visit, if only to see what you have escaped! But it also abounds with craft shops and restaurants and will satisfy such cravings should they arise. Enchanting hideaway in secluded tropical garden, with hammocks and sun-loungers. Spacious wood and thatch eco-house in rural location, away from tourist areas, and a mile from deserted beaches. Close to small, friendly eco-lodge. 1hr from Banjul Int. airport. Sleeps 4. PLEASE NOTE: WE SUPPORT A SMALL NURSERY SCHOOL IN A NEARBY VILLAGE. LET US KNOW IF YOU'D LIKE TO VISIT.

Other Things to NoteThe nights are extraordinarily quiet and the starry firmament is breathtaking. In the morning flocking birds sing to wake and lure the guests out of their beds to behold the sunrise through the palm trees.
