The Feel Free Lodge is located on a beautiful sandy beach on the secluded, tropical island of Jinack, set in the Niumi National Park on the North Bank of the River Gambia.
Unspolied and as nature intended it the Feel Free Lodge has been constructed and is managed in partnership with a local Gambian family.
Since 2005 we have worked closely with neighbouring villagers and local craftsman to build and run Djembe Fever Lodge, 20 minutes walk inland and by the river. 2014 saw the opening of Feel Free Lodge in this prime location on the beach
The eco friendly accommodation consists of 8 en-suite rooms all less then 100 footsteps away from the beach, the perfect place to relax, unwind and enjoy a peaceful holiday in The Gambia . There are numerous outdoor seating and dining areas and hammocks, a bar and a restaurant.
During the evenings beach barbeques are frequent and local musicains are often to be found entertaining
The lodge has board games and some books and the internet connection is usually strong on the beach for those who wish to connect.
Life is peaceful and simple. The electricity at the lodge is 100% solar powered, there are no roads on Jinack and transport is provided by donkey and cart
