Places to stay in Gunjur


Gunjur is about 45 minutes’ drive from Banjul International Airport and about 30 minutes’ drive from the popular Senegambia Tourist Strip.

As such, Gunjur has a respectable selection of good quality seafront resorts and inland travellers' lodgings. If you really want peace and quiet and want to explore real Gambia, then go for the coastal hotels and lodges that are found on this beautiful region of The Gambia.


The seafront area of Gunjur resort is, at most times, gloriously deserted, save for the odd passing cow and the occasional passer-by. The strand is less geared to tourist than some of the northern holiday resorts and there are a few dotted beach bars and lodges nestled on the edge of huge rhum palm clusters and shoreline bush. Pristine yellowish sand sweeps the edges of broad bays, presenting impressive views into the distant shoreline, and the sunsets are magnificent. In terms of natural beauty, this region's seafront perhaps only comes second to Sanyang, located further north.

Nemasu Echo Lodge

May 28, 2023

Nemasu began as a small 'camp' called Rasta Kunda, in 1992. Over the years it became run down, and by 2006 it was largely abandoned.


In late 2009, Greg Haarburger and Hillary Griffith, professional photographers & entrepreneurs from Australia & USA, were exploring West Africa with their son Daniel and daughter Bianca. The family fell in love with the wonderful people of Gambia, and the undeveloped natural beauty of the coastline. They began a partnership with the previous owner, and spent 2010 restoring the hotel and its surrounding forest. They now bring their combined experience to manage the hotel, protect the local environment, and introduce a range of projects to support the local community.
