The Gunjur Project Lodge
Located in the village of Gunjur Kajabang you will find The Gunjur Project Lodge. The size of this lodge and its family feel is what makes it so unique and stand out from the rest. The Gunjur Project is a model of responsible tourism with a focus on community development.
We ensure that your visit to The Gunjur Project Lodge will give you a fabulous Gambian experience and ensure visitors have a positive impact on the surrounding area. A walk through Kajabang village will submerge you into daily Gambian life where a smile always greets you. The beach is just ten minutes walking distance where you can walk or run for miles along the shoreline of the Atlantic Ocean.
What we offer
If you are looking for a holiday with busy resorts, disco music, nightclubs, retail shops, television etc then you have to go elsewhere! We do offer evening entertainment with local musicians showcasing their talent, or women groups performing their traditional song and dance.
You can join in with djembe or dance workshops. There will be options for peaceful days around the pool or days exploring the area or you may want to get involved with supporting a community project. You can spend time relaxing on deserted beaches or enjoy some beach fishing. We are surrounded by nature and you can expect amazing bird watching, stunning sunsets and a really warm welcome.
We have a small swimming pool 1.5m deep the perfect place to cool off in the midday sun.
If you enjoy working out then we have a small bantabar in the garden offering circuit training, weights, exercise bike, yoga mats. A number of the team go out most mornings for either village or beach running which you are more than welcome to join in with. We have bikes on site for you to use and ask for a small donation towards maintenance.
