Your dream vacation in Tanji Gambia

Welcome to our lodge!

JaGambia is a friendly small lodge with two round houses for rent in the authentic fishing-village Tanji. The lodge is located in a quiet area between friendly locals. The ocean, the river and birdreserve are nearby so a lot of different birds come to visit the lodge. And it is far enough from the busy fishmarket to hear or smell (!) nothing. 

 JaGambia has a nice pool and enough space to relax in sun or shadow. 

It is also possible to just visit the lodge, combined with a tour in Tanji. To cool down in the pool and relax, have a drink or a local made lunch/dinner.

“... Living in two worlds! At the border of an authentic Gambian village, with all the charmes and hassles, you stay in a small paradise with western comforts an gather around the swimmingpool like you would gather around a fire on a cold night in the North...."
Peter & Céline, Amsterdam
“..This small complex is an oasis. A spacious cottage with a good shower and a seating area. A nice garden and lovely pool and enough areas to enjoy the sun as well as the shade. Combined with the hospitality of Haruna, the host, and his willingness to show you all the sights of Gambia, its a lovely place that i can recommend!...”
