How To Get To Feel Free Eco Lodge On Jinack Island
We will pick you up from the airport or your hotel and take you to Banjul where you have a choice of options for crossing the River Gambia. You can join the ferry or take a local commuter or cargo canoe that will take you to Barra on the north bank of the river. We can also organise a private canoe that will bring you directly to the beach at Feel Free Lodge.
From there you will travel by Land Rover through the local villages, countryside and salt flats to the banks of the Niji Creek where a small canoe will transport you to the village of Ginack Niji. From there it is a short journey by donkey cart to the Feel Free Lodge.
Included in the day are visits to the local village and school on Jinack, African lunch/English BBQ and all drinks (beer and soft) included. Then fish off the beach, sunbathe and swim before leaving Jinack Island in time for a return to your hotel by 6pm.
Or stay overnight and enjoy a beach side evening BBQ and a night of peace and tranquility with campfires on the beach under the African night sky.
The next morning awake in paradise, enjoy a relaxing breakfast overlooking the ocean, chill out on the beach or take a donkey and cart round the Island or fish off the beach, BBQ lunch and return to your hotel by 6pm.
We can also organise nature walks, bird watching and creek or sea fishing trips.
