Kingfishers Self Catering Holiday Apartments, Bijilo, The Gambia, is run by an English couple who are based on site, assisted by a small but very experienced and well established team. Located in a quiet residential area with local bars and restaurants within walking distance. We’re ideally situated for the discerning traveler – not just another hotel bound tourist. A short walk past Bijilo Forest will take you to the beach , a wonderfully unspoiled stretch of sand, giving you a chance to spot monkeys and exotic birds on the way. The main tourist area of Senegambia is just over a mile and here you will find supermarkets, restaurants serving multi cultural cuisine as well as local Gambian dishes. There are also many bars with entertainment. Taxis run frequently from the top of the road and a five minute, low cost journey will take you straight to the tourist strip.
A 6 hour flight from Gatwick and you could be in the heart of West Africa at a price that will surprise you.
