Beautiful sunny garden full of trees and bird life

  • 5 of 5
Informal compound with 6 one bed en suite open plan lounge and kitchen.Friendly management husband and wife team , gambian and british.24 hour security with own safe , wifi and sat. tv.This is all set in an african village , but with european comforts . The pool was a welcome relief on hot days and the beach a 15 min. walk away.The main Senegambia area with restaurants and bars is only a 15 min taxi away.Coming here makes you realise the rat race we are caught up in , in the first world.

Wonderful Banana Lodge-

  • 5 of 5
After searching many websites for private accommodation in The Gambia i finally decided that Banana Lodge ticked all the boxes for me.The website was very precise you knew what to expect when you arrived and the price you would be paying. When i walked through the gates after a long tiring journey i was blown away. It was arriving at an oasis so green, with a lovely blue pool. All the trees and plants i had seenhad grown threefold. Mango tress, banana plants, trees, bushes and plants and a beautiful burgonvilla and hibiscus. The hosts were very welcoming. The apartment was lovely high ceilings with fans and hot water. The big plus was a 5ft bed with a proper english style mattress white sheets and no smelly pillows. I met some some lovely people in the lodge and everyone i spoke to had the same positive opinion as me. All said they would come again and many had stayed several times before. I think to think that Rosemary has become a new friend to me and i know i will return. Linda Reed Great Dunmow Essex

Dear Rosemary & Mustapha

I had a wonderful stay with you and noticed that your gardens have grown beautifully since you took the pictures for your website, giving a lot of privacy and tropical atmosphere to the apartments.

Your hospitality was exemplary.

I'll be back for sure!

Great, save, clean and .. just good

  • 5 of 5
For the third time I booked a lodge at Banana lodge. Not any other lodge for me anymore. Very nice, kind and trustful people, great and clean house, birds in the garden and a lovely pool. For bird photographers as me a great and save place to stay with enough places to go in the area. Thank you Rosemary, Mustapha and Abelai.

Banana Lodge, Brufut, The Gambia

  • 4 of 5
This was my 8th visit to The Gambia and the 2nd time I had stayed at Banana Lodge, a wonderful oasis of peace and calm run by really welcoming proprietors Rosemary and Mustapha. If you are contemplating a trip to The Gambia and wish to be away from the hustle and bustle of the tourist resorts then Banana Lodge is the place for you. The accommodation is self-catering so you are free to eat where and when you want. The rooms are big and spacious and each apartment has its own private garden to the back where I enjoy sitting with my morning coffee watching the many colourful birds that are attracted to the luscious plants and trees which have been thoughtfully planted throughout the complex. During the day you can laze by the pool or if it's a trip you want Rosemary and Mustapha willingly organise it for you. In April I visited the Abuko Nature Reserve where I had a thoroughly interesting morning bird watching with a guide who was courteous, friendly and very knowledgeable. If it's the beach you want then a 15 minute walk will find you on a wonderful sandy beach where you can walk, lie in the sun, sit at a beach bar or watch the local fishermen. Beware of swimming though as the currents are strong. If voluntary work is your thing Rosemary can also arrange this be it in a school, hotel or within health. To conclude, I am a single, female traveller and at Banana Lodge I feel safe and free from the hassle that can be experienced in the hotel areas. I will definitely be staying at Banana Lodge again later this year. Happy Holidays.
