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 tailormade holiday?

For us, tailormade 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 or The Kairaba, 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 2 or 3 days upriver at Chimp Camp, a remarkable rehabilitation project where you'll see hippos and chimps in their natural environment, followed by 4 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 4 nights at Ngala Lodge with 3 nights at Fathala Wildlife Reserve on our Luxury Hotel & Safari Lodge twin-centre holidays?

Unique Hotels & a Senegal Adventure


This is mouthwatering... why not try a few days at the friendly White Horse Residence, or adult-only Leo's Beach Hotel, both offering a beautiful location, a near-deserted beach and the last word in personal service, with a trip to neighbouring Senegal? The options this year 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. New this year is the possibility to drive south into the Casamance region of southern Senegal, offering fantastic French cuisine and stunning, white sand beaches.
