Brilliant service from beginning, though a bit of a rocky finish from management point of view. Like they wanted rid of us now the trip was over! Not so from the staff - our cleaner, our waiters, our tour guide, our security staff, all stuck around to give us a great send off!
During our stay, the food was great, our waiters were fabulous, the room was lovely - and the birdsong from morning until late evening was amazing - and then the exquisite bats took over to patrol with the security guys.
A fabulous place to stay. Wouldn't have stayed anywhere else. The trips we took with 'Bird Man' Aziz were simply splendid - and our river cruise and a walk to the monkey park with Hattib were excellent.
We'll be back!

After the crocodile place we had the walk ...

... and very competent. I was very impressed with the decision of the senior immigration officer on duty to allow foreign passengers to be processed by the immigration booths reserved for Gambians. That eased the queue that was building up; resulting in most passengers clearing immigration and customs within 30 minutes max.
What impressed me the most was the lack of hassle by customs officials and pestering by porters. This was a great plus for me; having gone through the gauntlet ...
... I was followed all the way by a bumster, a local lad wanting money, got to the Kombo beach when I said goodbye.. He was so gutted! Spent a few hours on the beach at Dominoes beach bar and restaurant, enjoyed the greasy chicken roll i'd ordered. After bartering a patched leather Rastas cap, wooden gorilla and fishermen's trousers I headed walking back to my hotel.. Had another beer and got head down for ...
