Review:
The White Horse Residence is an exclusive, deluxe, privately run holiday guesthouse in Gambia providing high standards of service in quality accommodation that is blended into its natural palm forest surroundings.

It was officially opened on November 2013 but was originally a private winter home for the owner, Peter Weissferdt and his wife from 2004. The property was later converted into tourist accommodation by its German owner and Gambian business partner to cater to a select handful of travellers who want peace, quiet and tranquillity.

The White Horse Residence certainly offers this. Nestled close to the beach and surrounded by tropical trees and manicured lawns it blends the traditional and the modern in just the right balance.

The bedrooms are modern with basic mod cons yet finished to a high degree, while the accommodation's roof is topped off with well trimmed thatched roofs for a more African feel. The uncluttered bathrooms are nicely fitted with modern wash basins and showers.

Two of the rooms are in stand-alone grass roofed huts while the third is in the main guest house. From your bedroom it's possible to see the Atlantic Ocean expanse over to the horizon.  Due to the accommodation's proximity to the beach you are unlikely to need artificial cooling - just open the windows, take a dip in the pool or enjoy a cool, refreshing drink at the well stocked Red Pool Bar and enjoy the cooling sea breezes.

The general grounds of the White Horse guest house are truly impressive covering a whopping 18,000 square meters of land area, there's more than enough space for privacy should you need it.

The central focus of the White Horse lodge is the 12 metre swimming pool which is surrounded in a spacious, light brown tiled sunbathing area with comfortable sunbeds.

Your meals are made to order so do make sure you get your order in nice and early or you might miss out on some tasty, professionally prepared meals. There is also a BBQ pavilion where occasionally guest can get together and socialise al fresco style.

Don't for one second think there's not much to do while there. There are plenty of activities and excursions to choose from. You can take a day trip to the local food markets, outlying villages, a safari on one of the nature reserves, canoe tours spotting crocodiles and hippos, transfers to nightclubs and restaurants in Senegambia, Banjul, Kotu etc., birdwatching tours, river or ocean fishing by Quicksilver motorboat (incl. fishing tackle), kite surfing, bike rides, massage, manicures or request something that takes your fancy.
