Camping under a huge tree with a deserted beach in walking distance, good restaurant, not the best ablutions and friendly staff and owner
Price needs to be negotiated. We paid 200Dalasi/night (4€) for two people and had to eat in the restaurant once.
Camping with cold showers and clean toilet. Good security. Shade. Wonderful view over the River Gambia with cooling breezes. Handy for village shops and bar and restaurant. Camping was made impossible because of the sound of the generator which came alive in the dark, so we stayed in a bungalow for the following night. Camping was 150 dalassi and a bungalow was 400 dalassi for two
Good security. Tree filled bar and restaurant area. There was only electricity and cold beer at night due to the daily power cuts which affected all of Farafenni. In the middle of town so handy for shops and market. Moses the manager is very kind and helpful and does absolutely everything so do be patient if things take a while to materialise. The camping spot had absolutely no shade and cost 300 dalassi while rooms cost 400 dalassi so we went for the room which came with cold shower and clean toilet and a desk.
Excellent security guards in the form of a pack of ten dogs. They were all fine with our dog. Lots of trees and shade. Riverside bar and restaurant. Cold shower and clean toilet. Very accommodating female manager. We had all of these delights and necessities for absolutely free on condition that we ate at the excellent and inexpensive restaurant.
we bushcamp here unter a big shade tree. very calm here, only a monkey is sitting in the tree😉 and some cows are around us...
Nobody can see you from the road.
For trucks maybe the piste that leads to here is to small. try it.
wonderful calm place direct at the river. Fresh brise from the river. people here are extremely friendly and calm. Some fishers here so it should be possible to buy fresh fish from them. When we came we were surrounded from more than 20 noisy children. But we didn't pay attention to them and after 30min they all were gone back to there village as we were to boring for them.😇😆 so no worry about this😉
were aloud to sleep in the mystic area of the stone circles. The "stone man" is expecting to give a tour and get a small gratuity for it.
basic european toilets available. possible also for big rigs! We gave the guardian there a small money.
nice places for cars unter huge palmtrees witch give you shade.
Deserted beach direct near the place.
good ablutions but bucket shower.
price need to negotiate. We ended at 200 dalasi for a van and two person per night
friendly stuff and owner.
Absolute carnage even for Africa. Streets leading to the ferry terminal used for queuing. Suggest coming in from south as queue was small
buying a ticket is a scrum. Really fierce to get to the counter. Suggest if in a car send 2nd person ahead
Long waits for ferry too. This was Saturday though for me. Perhaps better on a weekday.
It is lovely place. Ex- dutch place. New owner is Lamin. He is so friendly and helpful. Place is so calm and relax. Bungalow is 1.500 dallasi include breakfast. Open tent 500 dallasi. I dont know the camper price. They dont have wifi. Road is to ride or drive in dry sesson.

The beach bar and restaurant is still under development, but is already possible to stay here with a car or a tent. Until it is finished a small fee is more than welcome. In the future it is also possible to rent a room. It is a great location at the beach. They are still working on running water, electricity, the restaurant and showers.
In Kemoto, you have a deserted hotel where you are able to park and stay but we stayed at Essa his compound, parked our 4x4 behind his house. There is water in the village but the showers are with buckets. And the toilet is just a hole in the ground. They can offer a room to stay as well. Everything is really simple but you get to know the locals and see and live like a local. We loved it and Essa is truly a genuine guy with good means.
We ate with the family and bought fish for them and gave some money in the end although they dont ask anything. Sometimes there is electricity in the village, in the evening, depending if the village has money to pay for gasoline for the generator.
Many cashew and mango trees. We were really spoiled!!
