Thoroughly enjoyed our 3 week stay in Kololi in February 2010.
We stayed at the Holiday Beach Hotel which was very central for beach and night life.
We found the people extremely friendly and welcoming. All had big smiles!
Being on the young side of elderly, we just wanted a quiet , relaxing beach holiday. Kololi ticked all the boxes.
We spent a good number of our days at the Voodoo Bar with free sunbeds. We were looked after well by all the staff at Voodoo Bar, but in particular by Bax the head waiter and beach boys Lamin and Moses. Nothing was too much bother.
Our evenings were spent on Senegambia Strip, where there are numerous restaurants of every nationality. You can dine expensively or cheaply.
We did some excursions. The best was 4 in day trip with Arch Tours which consisted of only 4 tourists in a jeep visiting markets,villages, fishing port and lunch at Paradise Beach. It gave a good insight into Gambian way of life.
We also visited Lamin Lodge and the Monkey Park on different days.
Overall an excellent holiday except the only downside were the bumsters. Although not aggressive or threatening, they were very annoying!
