Does anyone know a cheap but safe place to stay in Banjul, Kololi and elsewhere in the Gambia. I will be travelling as a lone female and don't have the finances to support hotel living. Internet searches don't give many options - only one hostel. Are there small guesthouses and family businesses in the areas, and can these be booked on arrival? I would prefer to support the local accom providers where possible.
I did some research and I hope that this helps!
This one costs about 16$ per night
The houses are situated in a beautiful garden, where you can enjoy African drinks and dishes if you like. They are six African style houses where you will have your own toilet and shower. Feel free to do as you like in the Brufut-Motel!
The Brufut-motel is situated a short distance from The Gambia's biggest Holidaycentre. Here you can enjoy "authentic-Africa". You will spend The night in round houses with your own toilet/shower.
