“really quiet”
Reviewed 23 February 2012

Very quiet and relaxing place, helpful and friendly staff. We stayed there twice in 2 weeks, getting there pretty late, and it was no problem whatsoever. a bit far from Bamako, if you have no car or a bike it would cost you about 10 euros and 20/25 mins to get to the centre. But.. this is Africa, and Bamako is not one of the most beautiful places in the world. In Kangaba you can relax, enjoy beautiful views, diving in a pool..

You can play volleyball, go to one of a few trips organised by the Campement, or just drinking sth cold on a huge veranda..
it really takes a long time for food to be served, but after crossing Western Sahara and Mauritania you are getting used to it:)
Overall:
good place to chill out, outside Bamako Central, nice rooms, clean and reliable, friendly staff and owners, clean swimming pool, good bar.. good restaurant but you have to wait for food a little bit too long.

Nice location and friendly staff. However, taking too much time to be served at the restaurant put us off... half an hour for the first bottle of beer, another 1h30min for just a "plat du jour" (today's lunch or dinner)!!
If small children are to stay overnight, make sure to bring food for them.

We had a great stay at this hotel/camp/lodge which is located in a rural and quiet area (3 miles from downtown Bamako so without its noise and pollution).
This camp/lodge mimmicks the more famous lodges of Tanzania or Kenya, in a simpler way, without all the usual luxuries associated to the 'hunting lodges", but they have a swimming pool and the rooms are nicely decorated with local artefacts.
They also organize small nice hikes around the camp with a few animals to spot.
Even in December the weather was quite hot, and we had to cool off 5 or 6 times a day in the pool or in our aircon room to be able to survive.
The management and staff was very helpful, and we didnt need to learn any French word to be able to order beers!
Tip: better to request the airport transfer in advance as there are no taxi around
