Review:
Kasumay Lodge is a Dutch private development project which aims to help Gambians generate there own incomes, so you can enjoy a holiday while helping the livelihoods of local people. It supports the development organisation called New Vision Gambia CBO. One of their projects is to set up a technical learning workshop in Kubuneh. If you like to help as a volunteer, a combination of helping and holiday is possible. Kasumay Lodge will give you a special development volunteer discount on the rooms. If you would like to know more, send an email to:

Are you a real nature lover who doesn't mind living in simple but clean African hut style accommodation? Do you want to get off the beaten track. If yes then this is the place for you. Kasumay Lodge is nestled just 5 minutes walk to the Gambia River delta where you can enjoy plenty of sports fishing opportunities, undisturbed birdwatching or just getting out into the bush and mangroves.

Trips outside the area of the village are available. You could go on a river cruise from Denton Bridge, enjoy a freshly prepared African meal and make your way along the sleepy river back to the tributary and your rooms. You could also take a 4x4 vehicle trip to the nearby bustling town of Brikama where you can visit the packed market place or buy some souvenirs from the craft market which is teaming with masks, drums and other tourist trinkets.

On the other hand you might just want to relax within the grounds of the accommodation. Kasumay has this. No noise, no tv, no disturbance. What it lacks in tourist class facilities it more than makes up for in tranquillity.

Note: Room rates includes local breakfast.
