Boboi Beach Lodge is a collection of simple African huts nestled amongst tropical gardens, rolling sand dunes and shady Rhun palms on The Gambia's southern coast. The beach-front setting is simply stunning and although you're only an hour's drive from the package holiday tourist resorts of Senegambia, Kololi and Kotu, it feels like you're a million miles away!

The standard rooms at Boboi are en-suite, clean and functional, although they are quite basic by European standards. At times, you should be prepared to use the shared shower & toilet block, or shower 'Gambian-style' with a bucket and cup. We recommend upgrading to the newer beach view bungalows (supplement: £10 pppn). These rooms are more spacious, airy and have better bathroom facilities. However, if you're looking for a more up-market alternative try Sandele Bay Eco-retreat, approx 10 minutes walk north along the beach.

In keeping with it's eco-credentials, Boboi Beach Lodge has solar lighting in the huts and at the restaurant building, where you can also charge your mobile phone, camera etc. during the day. You can stay at Boboi Beach Lodge on bed & breakfast basis as part of your Discover the River itinerary; and if you prefer half-board there's a supplement of £8 pppn.
