African Village Overview

Enjoying a good reputation with its many loyal customers, African Village is renowned for its relaxed atmosphere and elevated location overlooking the ocean.

Set close to the bustling fishing community of Bakau, African Village offers a relaxing place to soak up the sunshine and is an ideal choice for those seeking a more authentic African experience. The pool area is where you'll go to make the most of the warm African climate, boasting a circular bar right in the centre. Alternatively, a sand covered, man-made sunbathing area has been created beside the ocean, complete with sunloungers and parasols. This is reached via steep steps, and offers access to the beach at low tide. There’s also a massage room at African Village if you fancy a relaxing treatment. The rooms are comfortable and simply furnished, ranging from traditional African round huts to larger rooms with stunning sea views, together creating a traditional Gambian village ambience. The compact, colourful gardens are well-kept, and little walkways weave amongst the guest rooms adding further to the property’s Gambian characteristics.
