WHAT TO DO ?

Take one of the many roundtrips and see the beautiful Gambia with all his colors , like.....

THE BEACH
This beach is located on the most beautiful bay of Gambia.
As far as you look from left to right, there is simply nothing that is not natural.
More tourist beaches are often polluted and crammed with hotels etc. Luckily you will not be bothered by so-called bumsters who want to sell you everything and just do not leave you alone. You can laze, swim, have a drink and enjoy a delicious meal all day long. Or just continue sleeping with the sound of the waves without having to worry about someone sitting on your things. And all that within a few dozen meters of your own house.

THE ALLAHEIN RIVER
The Allahein River is also the border between Gambia and and region in Senegal called Cassamance. The Allahein is a rare and beautiful salt water mangrove creek which is almost unspoiled. The river is tidal, so it flows in both directions depending on the tide. This means it is constantly “flushing” which forms a rich habitat for many species of birds and fish as well as otters and the occasional crocodile. Boboi has two boats and experienced captains who can show you the river and act as guides. The boats are safe and have lifejackets.

THE MANGROVE AREAS
Kartong is surrounded by mangrove areas.
These are brackish water areas that are full or empty every 6 hours.
It is a very beautiful area where you can sail with canoes or just walk on the safe paths.
Because it is brackish water, there are almost no insects such as mosquitoes etc. Well you come
In this area practically no malaria occurs during the season, as in the more touristy areas.
You can imagine what will emerge when it is low tide.

REPTILE FARM
Many of our guests visit the reptile farm. It is a ten minute walk from the Boboibeach resort and you can meet all the kinds of wildlife that are becoming increasingly rare in Gambia today such as snakes, lizards, tortoises and crocodiles.

KARTONG
Walk to the beautifull village of Kartong,
Meet the locals
Kartong is the village nearby. It takes about 20 minutes to walk there and it is well worth the visit because it is not only a typical Gambia village but it is also one of the oldest villages (450Years)in the Gambia. The main ethinc groups in Kartong are; Mandinka, Jolla, Carronlinka and Balanto. The main language is Mandinka. Going out with us to the village you could even learn some basic Mandinka.
Tale a walking tour with us. We can show you round and will take you to parts you would not normally find. The villagers are welcoming and friendly and since we know pretty much everyone, you will too!.

SENEGAL
Visit Senegal , Only 15 min away is the boarder to Senegal
You can use a smal boat over the river or the officiel way over land. How ever ,it is an excitement tour to for example the small coastplace Abene where the Senegalese French kitchen
can offer you real croissants and all kind of specialities.

BICYCLES
Go cycling on the shoreline along the long beaches and enjoy nature from the water perpective.Want to take a break? Just stop and lie down in the warm water of the atlantic. We can provide you with a picnic somewhere in a forgotten bay ....

HORSE RIDING
The local horses are waiting impatiently for you to ride the sunset together.

FISHING
Great fishing in the Allahein river or in the ocean.You can catch snappers, barracudas, cat fish, puffer fish and many others!

BBQ
After you will be able to BBQ together on our beach at your own campfire...

BIRDS
Kartong is a bird watchers dream! There are over 300 species and many of them can be found at the river.

USE AN ORIGINAL DUG OUT CANOE
Most locals use a dug out canoe to get about and you can go out with them as they paddle you up and down the river.
Jane is calling.....The boats are safe and have lifejackets.

SERRAKUNDA MARKET
Serrekunda markets are typical African markets which sell almost everything you can imagine and more besides. You can make your own African dress.It very ad-hoc and you need to be prepared to bargain to get the best deal.

CRAFT MARKET
Brikama craft market is a purpose built market where local craftsmen make and sell their products. If you want to buy a jembe this is the right place! Go with our guides - you will get a much better price.

MONKEY PARC
This monkey reservation parc is at the beach , bring some groundnuts or an apple and they will be your best friends.

FISHING VILLAGE TANJI
Here most fischerman have their base and bring their fresh fish.
The woman are waiting to sell them to you and all restaurants around,
It is an spectacular mix of different colors,cultures and just good fresh food.

SURFING
You can surf at our atlantic bay , this bay is known as a surfer paradise during high tide .
At great tide nice big waves break on the sandbanks off the coast. These are also the only sounds that you can hear in your comfortable bed at night.

UP-RIVER
We can organise a short one or two day trip to Jinak Island. It is not far and we will take you up to Banjul where they will collect you by boat. It gives you a chance to experience
a different part of Gambia and well worth the visit.

LAMIN LODGE
This famous lodge gives you the view over the wide mangrove forrest.
You can eat very fresh mangrove fish and oysters.

AT NIGHT
In de evening you see the milky way like you never saw it before. (there is absolutly no light pollution here)
We make campfires on the beach and the locals come to play their african drums to seduce you to dance to the moon and stars.

YOGA
We have our own Dutch yoga teacher who helps you find inner peace in the mornings.

AFRICAN DANCE COURSE
We organise african dance courses together with the local woman from Kartong. Its a lot of fun to feel their drums rhythm.

MORE NIGHTLIFE
The coastal highway connects the total coast line from Banjul till Kartong.It means that you are fast in Senegambia or any
outgoing area. We offer during the weekends trips there with our caravan wich is for max.15 persons.
GUINNEA-BISSAU
Like a microcosm of Africa, this tiny old portugese nation contains multitudes – of landscapes, peoples, cultures and plant and animal life. All of it within reach of the capital, Bissau. Faded colonial-era houses sag, from tropical decay and the weight of history.Guinee-Bissau is only 5 hours away from Kartong.
