Review:
Located on 11th Street in Fajara the Safari Garden Hotel lies on a sandy road in a quiet residential district with generally good security. The beach is only about 10 minutes by taxi.

It is the former home of an Englishman which over the years has been transformed into its present condition by its current owner Geri and her husband. The front thatched reception is fairly informally laid out with postcards, belongings safe and souvenirs for sale.

There is an outdoor bar and much of the activity outside is focused around the pool which is 8 feet deep at the deep end. The area is paved and bright with draped awnings and parasols in in bright colours as well as the compulsory deckchairs.

For activities outside the accommodation is close to shops, bars & restaurants.

The establishment is one of those in Gambia committed to responsible tourism & where possible applies eco-tourist principles as it sources as much of its restaurant produce from local source & attempts to minimize harm to the environment by composting its organic waste. The staff are given paid holidays & furniture is locally made. Furthermore natural mosquito repellents are used & no pesticides or fertilisers are used in the garden area.

The hotel also runs the Sandele Eco-retreat in Kartong Village.
