But onto the real reason we had gone to Bakau -.....The Crocodile Pool !
A 4 metre deep pool with a dense covering of waterlilies and all encompassed by heavy vines and trees. Lazing about the pool side and taking in the midday sun were 28 Nile crocodiles grinning like Tony Blair, which was more than enough for us until we were informed there are more than a 100 in residence. Gambians believe a visit to ...
... is easy, but not much to see. We went to monkey park, which was good and an easy walk (we walked back along the beach, but there using the road). There is much less local character within easy reach compared to the other places we stayed. It is obviously far more touristy here. Bumsters will beg, but not follow you so much. We had them trying to scam us in many ways. Not such a likeable bunch as in Banjul! In Bakau there is croc pool, fishing area ...
... that we tried local restaurants for food. Billy's, with a view of Arch 22, was the best food we had on our holiday. Very good portions and quality at very good prices (less than £4 a meal). Michel's seafood is now something like Bamboung, but the food was a bit disappointing. Nefretiti on beach is only open until 6pm and had a much nicer ambience, but cost more (still less than hotel).

TravelPod Member ReviewsSeaview Gardens Hotel Kololi
Apart from Wonderful staff this place would have received a 2 rating..
It's location makes it so difficult to do anything with the hassle from the Bumsters once you leave the hotel...
Too far from the beach.
Too far from the Strip of Bars and Restaurants.
You'll pay extra for...
Full English Breakfast items such as Bacon.
Air Con (rooms don't even have a fan) which leaves you with little choice to pay the extra £3 a night.
Check these prices before you book as it'll came out of your spending money otherwise.
