The space

My compound and home are set out in the traditional Gambian style and you are more than welcome to use all the faculties within my compound. This will include your own private room within the compound. Everything else is shared with my family in the local style.

Guest access

When you arrive to Barra, I will come and greet you at the taxi stand or ferry depending where it is you arrive. Barra is a small town so it will be easy for me to find you and bring you back to my home.

Interaction with guests

When you stay with me, you will be living with me and my family so we will be eating together and I will happily tell you all there is to know about the daily life of Gambian people within the compound. My family will show you how to cook traditional food and anything else we can do for you or show you just ask!

Other things to note

I have a car and any transport you want to anywhere within the Gambia and even Senegal can be organized with me. I'm happy to show you many places around the Gambia so just ask and we can organize things when your staying with me.

Njanko is a very kind host. He picks you up on time, guards you very well, gives explanations about his family and the environment, his family serves delicious food. The sea is close and nice to swim. The facilities are basic, we slept very well in the bed! Njanko can be trusted. We enjoyed our night there.
