The Gunjur Project Lodge is perfectly in the rural village of Gunjur in the south of Gambia, close the the unspoilt beach (with beach bar), the fishing village and Mandina.
The 6 rooms are set in the garden. On site a fresh water pool, a bar/restaurant, reception with souvenir shop and internet facilities.
There is a tropical garden with hide outs and hammocks, not only for you but also for the many birds and other small animals.
The beach is endless and unspoilt, ideal for long walks or just to relax. The sunsets are amazing. The fishing village is nearby where you can see the day to day life of the fishermen and even join in with bringing in the fish.
A 30 minute walk, or 5 minutes by bush taxi, will bring you to the centre of Gunjur with its local market and shops, schools, mosk etc.
In the area of the lodge are several small villages worth visiting. In the bush you have a good chance of spotting monkeys and at least one morning you have to go for a walk in the wetland, only 5 minutes from the lodge.
To explore other parts of Gambia it is possible to rent a jeep/car and guide. There is a lot to see and explore in Gambia.
We offer djembe lessons, massages, cooking workshops, guided trips, bird watching walks and more.
