The space
The dream to create Camara Gardens began in 2008. We are so excited to be able to say that the dream has become reality for 2018. We’ve had a few setbacks along the journey but now we open the gates and our hearts to you.

We invite you to join us in this home from home holiday accommodation which is full of love for the people and the amazing country of Gambia.

Camara Gardens apartments are set in calming gardens with an array of tropical flowers and trees. The peaceful surrounding means you can totally relax in the garden, take breakfast on the patio or chill at the poolside with the sounds of the local birds.

This is a private house with 4 purpose-built European standard apartments which can be booked individually or collectively for a private villa holiday with family and friends.

The house is in a quiet location, it would suit those wanting a calming ambiance, allowing you to unwind and relax. We are in a great location to be able to explore the fascinating Gambian cultures and tribes. Gambia is also a hotspot for bird watching.

Contemporary quality furnishings with an African twist!

Once inside you will see that each apartment has been designed to ensure that you have all the comforts you need to make this your home from home in the Gambia.

Bedrooms have hotel quality beds which are twin, or king sized with super comfortable mattresses and modern wardrobe and dressing table, a selection of African fabric bed covers, cushions and curtains to complement the Egyptian cotton linen. The air conditioning will keep you cool from the tropical heat.

The en suite bathrooms have large walk-in showers with luxurious body-jet showers supplied with hot water heated by solar

The kitchen is fully equipped with modern units a full cooker, microwave, kettle, toaster and fridge etc. Within the cupboards you will find all the pots, pans, glassware and serving bowls you might need to prepare and serve your culinary delights. To enjoy the outdoor dining experience there is a BBQ at hand.

In the living/dining room there is a large comfortable leather sofa bed, a couple of arm chairs, a flat screen TV with connection to your phone, a ceiling fan as well as a dining table with chairs suitable as a workspace.

We have Free Wi-Fi.
All rooms have Mosquito nets on all windows
Each apartment has a Room safe

As we are in Africa and it’s not quite the same as modern Europe we have our own borehole and solar hot water system to provide constant, water and a hot shower! Each apartment has a rechargeable fan and light for when the local power goes off.

Each apartment has its own balcony or terrace area with table and chairs so that you can relax with a long cool drink or just sit and listen to the birds singing.

The outdoor space is the place for relaxation and evening gatherings.

We have somewhere for the Sun or the shade. We have separate seating areas around the poolside, comfy sofas and armchairs for chilling, tables and chairs for dining and of course the sunbeds for catching the rays and relaxing.
In the gardens we have an array of colourful tropical plants and foliage including, bird of paradise flowers, lilies, palm trees, an avocado tree, banana plants and papaya.

If you have a private occasion to celebrate such as a wedding ceremony, then we can arrange caterers for you to hold your event poolside. (you need to book all apartments for a private event)

Where you’ll be

Brufut, Banjul, Gambia

We are on the outskirts of Brufut just a few steps in from the coastal road only a 10-15-minute stroll to the beautiful unspoiled Brufut beach where you can take a short walk or continue for miles. Along the beach you will find small friendly local bars providing you with rest-bite from the African sun and a cool refreshing drink.

Our neighbours are the locals and our friends! Many of them have been involved with the creation of Camara Gardens.

Door to door taxis can be arranged for you or you can pick up local transport on the coastal road a couple of minutes’ walks away.

Brufut has a small local market daily (mainly food), you can walk there in 10 to 15 minutes or take local transport.

Within 10 minutes’ walk there are a couple of restaurants and bars but not too many!

For those who want the busier night life we are only 5 minutes away by taxi from the Senegambia strip where you can dance under the African stars to the reggae beats or enjoy the African drums till the early hours!

I am a very well-travelled Lady. I have lived and travelled the world and have worked in the travel tourism and hospitality industry for more than 20 years. I am very friendly and chatty but also know when a gust needs peace and quiet or to be left alone. I have been coming to the Gambia since 2004 and lived here in 2007 but finally moved lock stock and barrel in 2018.

I am very keen on health and safety and making sure that anyone who comes to stay with me has the best holiday ever.

I would like you to have a chilled and relaxed stay doing as much or as little relaxation and exploring as you like.

I can give you plenty of information on the Gambia and the local area. I can arrange airport transfers or excursions for you.

My Motto for life is "life's for living so lets get on with it!"
