Over the years, we've come to the conclusion that the best way to see The Gambia - and to get a real 'feel' for the place - is to combine a stay at two, or even three properties.


What is a tailor-made holiday?

For us, tailor-made holidays are all about freedom - freedom to choose what suits you best, freedom to select from our finest hotels and our most dazzling properties; freedom to use your imagination and build the perfect holiday - with the help of our expert advice, of course. 

Golden Beaches & Barefoot Luxury

Combine a stay at one of our beachfront properties, say Coco Ocean spoiling yourself with drowsy afternoons snoozing or reading on golden sand and dining under the stars in the evening, with a trip upriver to the lodges at Mandina where you'll find spectacular natural beauty, beautiful accommodation and the very epitome of barefoot luxury.

Wildlife Journeys & Ultimate Relaxation

Combine two days upriver at Chimp Camp, a remarkable rehabilitation project where you'll see hippos and chimps in their natural environment, followed by four days of indulgence at Ngala Lodge, making the most of beautiful suites, magnificent views and one of the finest restaurants in The Gambia. Alternatively, a stay in luxurious safari tents at Fathala Wildlife Reserve in Senegal offers a perfect wildlife encounter. Why not combine four nights at Ngala Lodge with three nights at Fathala Wildlife Reserve on our Luxury Hotel & Safari Lodge twin-centre holidays?

Unique Hotels & a Senegal Adventure


This is mouthwatering... combine a trip to neighbouring Senegal with a few days at the friendly, adult-only Leo's Beach Hotel, offering a beautiful location, a near-deserted beach and the last word in personal service. The options are diverse - from game drives at Fathala Wildlife Reserve, to the Sine Saloum Delta and its stunning waterways rich in birdlife, both in northern Senegal. Or drive south into the Casamance region of southern Senegal, offering fantastic French cuisine and stunning, white sand beaches.
