The Gambia is the pearl of West Africa, so we also rent out a number of private homes that guarantee absolute tranquility. As Gambia connoisseurs who are also involved in the purchase of land and building houses, we know the land well and we know which houses are suitable for a pleasant holiday. You can contact us about all your questions about the Gambia or our offered house.
