Check out these great places to stay on your trip to The Gambia.


Chimpanzee Rehabilitation Project
Book one of the safari tents at this amazing camp and you will be able to hear the chimpanzees as you settle down for the night. The primates inhabit three islands in the middle of the River Gambia, and the room rate includes a boat tour so you can watch them.


Mandina River Lodge
This lavish eco-retreat isn’t for budget travelers, but it’s worth saving up to treat yourself. Located in the Makasutu Culture Forest, it’s perfect for spotting monkeys, baboons and plenty of birdlife.


Ngala Lodge
Check in to one of the 24 guestrooms at this seafront lodge and you will love the spacious suites. This place is also home to one of the best restaurants in the whole country, so you will eat well, too.


There are only five rooms at this boutique hotel, which sits on a cliff behind Brufut beach, so you’ll need to book in advance. Once you’re in situ, enjoy the pool with views over the sea and get your meals at the hotel restaurant.


Footsteps Eco Lodge
This guesthouse is found on the south coast of the country and offers nine en-suite bungalows around a swimming pool, as well as a number of log cabins. It’s close to the beach, too.
