Camara Gardens Guesthouse Kololi - Your Home from Home is waiting for you.


A newly restored house in a hip & cool style, with just 5 rooms, great for unwinding and relaxing. This is our 2nd Home from Home in Gambia, which we are proud to introduce. Simply perfect if you’re travelling solo, just the 2 of you, on business or a group of family & friends wanting the whole house! (max 10). A retreat, far enough to enjoy peace & quiet when you just want to chill, yet close to where it’s all happening in Senegambia !


We’re not your average B&B or Lodge but a special place with our simple and unique style of furnishings and décor. You won’t find anywhere else in the Gambia like Camara Gardens guesthouse Kololi. (We are  “Adults Only” unless you take the whole house for your group or family)


On entering you will instantly see the ‘Hub’ which the heart of the house is it is crisp, fresh and original.  The houses’ interior decor has been lovingly created to give a Chic Bohemian feel with a twist and vibrancy. From the vivid colours of the paintwork, the local arts, the shabby chic furnishings to the bold African fabrics used for curtains and upholstery you will experience a distinctive Mediterranean and African feel within the light and airy building. The simple wooden doors are painted with vivid gloss, just to add extra character to our house.


All rooms are clean, bright and simple and have double beds, comfortable mattresses, pillows and throws, locally handcrafted wardrobes, bedside tables and beautifully restored shabby chic chairs.  Rooms also have new modern windows and mosquito nets; African fabrics add splashes of colour in the form of cushions and curtains. The walls are adorned with African artwork and fabrics, also adding colour to the rooms.


The ceiling fan will keep you cool from the tropical heat.


The ensuite bathrooms have newly fitted toilets, wash hand basin and walk-in showers  Hot water is supplied from the electric water heater.


Our superior rooms have a separate seating area with a sofa, and desk area suitable for those wanting a laptop space and somewhere to relax indoors.  They also have bigger bathrooms and luxurious body-jet showers.



At the heart of the house is the bright and airy ‘hub’ which leads to the rooms on the ground floor, the impressive staircase leads to the upper floor rooms and shared balconies. The hub serves as a communal chillout and breakfast area, here you will find complimentary tea, coffee and hot water throughout the day, so chill, socialise or use your mobile or laptop with the free Wi-Fi on the comfy sofa and chairs. We also have a fridge hosting the honesty bar with a selection of chilled canned and bottled drinks!


Outdoors the Mediterranean inspired courtyard is tranquil and has a selection of carefully nurtured plants. You can enjoy the peace and quiet of our cozy oasis in the sun or the shade to relax, read a book, use the WIFI, eat breakfast alfresco or simply doing nothing! We have 2 shared balconies upstairs to enjoy view of local life! To enjoy the outdoors in the evening there is a BBQ at hand.
