Kotu Beach Gambia

We became absorbed by finding birds in the deep jungle thickets and before we were a quarter of the way around the reserve it was time to leave. Each includes a small kitchenette with two electric rings, refrigerator, lounge/dining area and separate bedroom.

If you don’t stay here (I suppose it fills up very quickly in season, so reservation on 497186 or fatou1@avu.org is absolutely necessary) it is also a good place to eat or drink in the evening, this is the favourite of a lot of expats. With 24 hotels to choose from we have something for everyone. From budget to deluxe, boutique to large and lively, family friendly hotels to children free properties.

We ended up again at the nightjar site near the Palma Rima, where two Long-tailed Nightjars performed wonderfully again. Actually, it was a lot more overcast than on my earlier visit, so they appeared a little earlier, giving better and more prolonged views. The layout of the hotel was pleasing with palms and colourful plants, and of course, it is situated right on the beach. One problem I did find was the lack of hot water, which seemed to appear now and then. The Elephant Terrace is a beautiful quiet area surrounded by palms and flowers next to the main hotel reception where you can take tea, coffee or a snack, read a book or just relax. We also offer an A la Carte dining in the main hotel restaurant as well as an authentic Chinese restaurant for that special evening meal.

Watch how the strong local drink is collected from the palms here by palm wine sellers. Blue-bellied Roller was also easily seen, in oil-palms along the cycle track. This is not an exhaustive list and on a two week trip there would be more time to bird the Kotu area at leisure and certainly add further species.

The central point and main area of activity is the swimming pool which is surrounded by sun terraces. During the day the terrace is scattered with sunbeds for a spot of relaxation, and at night the sunbeds are replaced by tables for . Two story houses form a wide horseshoe featuring spacious balconies or terraces allowing views of the ocean or the beautiful landscaped gardens and central pool. Utell Superior Selection – Offers the traveller quality rooms and facilities making their stay, whether business or leisure, relaxing and comfortable. Pool area was nice.
