A serene beautiful stay at fathala. The tents are like home. We sat and watched giraffe, monkeys, warthogs, antelope and the resident rhino saunter past our front door. All of the staff were friendly and knowledgeable and we loved the trips, the game drive, the bush walk and the island trip. The opportunity to visit the fishing village with Jerry to see the reality of life in Senegal/Gambia was humbling. The food and hospitality were divine. Camp fire before bed. A truly wondrous place.

Our family of nine spent two nights at Fathala and we were enamored with the facility and the staff. From the moment we arrived we were greeted by friendly faces and the staff worked dilegently to make sure that we enjoyed our time. It was one of those trips that our family will always treasure.

We stayed 2 nights. Staff warm and welcoming. Great food. Lovely tents & comfy beds. The Lion experience is not to be missed! A couple of scheduling snafus for our activities but no big deal. They corrected things right away for us.

Had the most wonderful time at the Lodge for my partner's birthday and New Years. The tents are beautiful and incredibly comfortable. The outdoor showers are hot with great water pressure, the bed is very comfortable, and the food at the hotel was delicious. The absolute highlights of the trip were watching wildlife wander through while reading by the pool and sitting in the hot tub under the stars at night. Thanks you for the wonderful stay!
