I've now lived in the Gambia for over a year, having visited 4 times before. I like to explore a bit and try different places to get away and relax and Boboi is my firm favourite. It's on the basic side but it's comfortable and clean; the food is generous and good quality; and the staff are undoubtedly some of...

Stayed here for one night with my friend who lives in the Gambia. The roundhouses are basic but so cute. Everyone is friendly and the food was lovely. For dinner, we both had fish, one with coconut sauce and one was the catch of the day with onions and a tomato sauce. Generous portions and very tasty. breakfast is basic,...

An excellent location, with really good fishing and bird watching available locally in Khatong, on the River @ the border with Senegal. Beach is outstanding, and service and food were much better than we expected. We have stopped here for drinks several times on previous trips, but never stayed. The accommodation, is very good - considering you really are in...

I'm only writing this review to try to give a balanced opinion of Boboi Lodge. The positives: the staff are lovely people and the food is good. Boating excursions were ready on time and worked well. The beach is superb and the swimming seemed safer here than elsewhere in Gambia, though please always pay attention to currents and dont go...

I'm torn - on the one hand I want to keep this place a secret for myself - but I also want the place to do well. The key here is the staff, they are truly friendly without being pushy, laid back and just overall good folk. The food was the best I tasted in the country. The atmosphere of...

Fantastic concept and location, no doubt about that. You are located right on the beach and you can fall asleep to the sounds of the waves. Bliss. On the beach, if you are lucky, you will meet a cow or two. Except for that, you are on your own. I loved it. Price wise, tree houses (very basic yet charming)...

Stayed here for a week over the New Year in one of the basic tree houses. Don't expect the Ritz but more than you'll need to get your fix of romantic/relaxing/simple life recouperation. Staff were very friendly, interesting and helpful. Food was good enough too. Drinks well priced. And the location, just feet from the most beautiful beach I have...

Stayed in boboi beach lodge in January this year, the staff were really friendly and very helpful. The food was delicious, and the menu had a very good choice. The best part about boboi was the location, right next to a deserted sandy beach, no one in sight except cows, and juice bars. The rooms were nice, we stayed in...

We spent 3 nights at Boboi after an exciting trip upriver. The Location is unbeatable - 5 steps from an abandoned beach. The only thing that might disturb you while relacing at the beach are the occasional and inevitable juice bars, but absolutely hassle-free. Accomodation however is average. We booked a beach side bungalow with breakfast for 2500 Dalasis per...

We just spent 4 nights at Boboi Beach Lodge near Kartong after a busier expereince in Fajara. Boboi has all the elements of a perfect holiday...relaxing, chilled out, not pretentious, good food (local and western), great staff and manager, friendly atmosphere and good prices. The beach was toally hassle free with long walks and great views and amazing sunsets. We...

“Chalet/Bungalow rooms are large with wonderful views and cool. Can soften sound of waves and wind in trees (which can be surprisingly loud) by shutting windows which cannot do in a treehouse. Get a room with a shower as the communal shower is a tap.”
