Guest house Kololi

Hi, I've been reading the forums for some weeks, and have decided to travel around the 15th November for 10-14 days.First time to Gambia, but have spent 3 years in Nigeria working.I'm looking for guest house accomodation, as I'm travelling solo and the supplements on packages are expensive.Basic is fine,no need for a pool etc, just somewhere to rest my head at night as I like to get out and see the sights.Any advice,contacts gratefuly accepted!

Hi Pete

Was it Kololi you particularly wanted to stay in?

If not, I'd recommend the Garden Guest House in Katchically (in the Bakau/Cape Point area)

http://www.realafrica.net/

It's managed by a Gambian, the onsite security Guy is from Senegal and the cook is a local Gambian lady who comes in and prepares food in the traditional way. Whilst the guest house is very basic (no pool), the beauty of it for me is that you really feel like part of the community rather than a tourist. You're living a stone's throw away from the small tourist area of Cape Point, but in the heart of the village where local people live.

The star ratings it lacks in traditional ranking of hotels, it more than makes up for in personal service and ambience.

The other good thing about it is that you book through Paul, who's British and based in England, so your emails get responded to within a few hours! We all know how frustrating it can be to get through to anyone in the Gambia!

If you do want somewhere in Kololi then I can recommend Easy Time Lodge. It's certainly cheap (D500 per room last time I stayed) and is better than basic standard with 4 poster beds fridge tv etc. It's self-catering with a large shared kitchen. You do get a pool to. Jason the owner is a fine english chap.

Thanks for the replies, appreciated.Problem I'm encountering is that the cost of package holidays even with the single supplement, is still working out cheaper than some of the flights!.Any advice?.Thanks in advance
