Review:
Mandina has been uniquely tailored for the sophisticated adventurer, looking for a first class eco retreat. Four solar powered floating lodges and one stilted house are nestled into the privacy of the encompassing mangroves. Reached by elevated walkways or by dug out canoe – paddled by your own ‘man Friday’.

The lodges offer 180-degree views of the Mandina Bolong (an idyllic tributary off the main river Gambia). Each handcrafted wood lodge features a four-poster carved bed fitted with crisp white linens. The en-suite eco friendly bathroom with tiled shower, state of the art composting toilets and solar heated water, opens on to the mangroves for a truly unique bathing experience. Fall asleep to the rhythmic sounds of the bush and awake to the distant call of the Muezzin from the neighbouring Kembujeh village.

• Mandina Lodges is set in 1,000 acres of virtual wilderness away from shops and mod-cons.

• Children allowed - close supervision is advised due to the river.

• Due to the accommodation's environmentally sensitive location air-conditioners are absent altogether.

• Take along enough personal toiletries as there are no shops nearby.

• Composting toilets are used in most suites to safeguard the local water's purity.

• Booked on a half-board basis.

• There is no money exchange, make sure you have enough of the local currency before your stay.

• The accommodation is about 20 minutes drive from The Gambia's main Banjul Airport.
