First time to Gambia

We have had a wonderful 10 days relaxing in the lovely Karaiba Hotel, we stayed on a bed and breakfast basis and were close to Kololi strip where there are plenty of restaurants to choose an evening meal. All hotel staff and friendly and polite. The grounds are beautiful with sun beds widely spaced, attended by pool staff offering drinks and snacks as desired. We recommend swimming in the sea which was warm with lots of waves, was great fun...

We recommend swimming in the sea which was warm with lots of waves, was great fun. We booked two excursions which were both enjoyable and informative and opened our eyes to life for ordinary people and children in the Gambia

Gambia needs guides/representatives

Great holiday at Kairaba for 7 days and 3 days at Fathala. Over in Africa a guide/rep is needed to stop the hassle from locals. Better prices for tours found outside

Beautiful country,weather and people but shame about the room standards

Having visited The Gambia for fourteen years, sometimes two or three times a year, we know that we will be safe and secure in the knowledge that the weather will be good, the people friendly and the choice of excursions and restaurants beyond doubt. However, the decline in standard of accommodation at The Kairaba has now led us to consider whether we should put our loyalty elsewhere. This hotel has the possibility of resurrecting the standards ...

Having visited The Gambia for fourteen years, sometimes two or three times a year, we know that we will be safe and secure in the knowledge that the weather will be good, the people friendly and the choice of excursions and restaurants beyond doubt. However, the decline in standard of accommodation at The Kairaba has now led us to consider whether we should put our loyalty elsewhere. This hotel has the possibility of resurrecting the standards to what used to be if the promises of the hotel owners are fulfilled but at the moment the empty promises are not materialising.

Rating for tour operator:

Excellent standard of booking and travel throughout. Very helpful.
