Five nights at Ngala Lodge and two nights in Fathala Wildlife Reserve

Enjoy the peaceful tranquillity of the idyllic beachside getaway at the Ngala Lodge, before witnessing African nature at Fathala Wildlife Reserve on this twin-centre holiday.

Begin your holiday in the Fajara coastal suburb resort of Ngala Lodge in the Bakau region of Gambia. Check-in to this relaxing hotel for a five-night stay. The hotel is set on a series of cliffs above a scenic cove overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. While staying here, explore the impressive tranquil grounds and soak up the sun, taste delicious flavours, and enjoy a perfect night’s sleep in the comfort of your spacious suite.

Next, head to Senegal for your two-night stay at Fathala Wildlife Reserve. Set within a large national reserve in the Sine Saloum South region, this resort will allow you to experience a selection of African wildlife. By day, relax by the plunge pool and lounge on the sun deck, discover a wealth of wildlife, and enjoy action-packed unique safari excursions. After dark, stay in an air-conditioned tent on a raised walkway and wake up the next morning to the peaceful hum of the African bush.

5 nights - Ngala Lodge - Gambia

The adult-only Ngala Lodge offers two swimming pools, large gardens with sunbathing areas, restaurant, bar, drinks service on the beach, Wi-Fi access, massage service, laundry service, and a total of 24 suites.

Spend your days lounging by the two pools; sipping on a cool drink as you gaze across at the wide sweep of sea and enjoy the cooling breeze. Enjoy a massage or manicure in the comfort of your suite, or find a spot on the extensive beach and relax for hours. By night, enjoy exquisite cuisine in the cliff top restaurant, then relax as you watch the Atlantic sunset.

The hotel's location at the top of a series of cliffs makes it hard to not fall in love with its serenity and beauty. Overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, the views will take your breath away, and with the addition of being adults only, you can definitely expect tranquillity. Enjoy a leisurely walk around the palm-filled tropical gardens, or take a stroll to the nearby coastal resorts of Bakau and Fajara.

The comfortably furnished suites boast luxury throughout. They include king-size beds, air-conditioning, telephone, satellite television, safety deposit box, bathrobes, hairdryer, tea and coffee making facilities, and minibar.

2 nights - Fathala Wildlife Reserve - Senegal

Fathala Wildlife Reserve has a plunge pool with sunbathing deck, open-air restaurant with continental breakfast, light à la carte lunch and three course set menu for dinner, bar, activity centre with full programme, 20 luxury safari tents, and beauty treatments on request.

The open-air Mahogany Restaurant and lounge offers unique experiences; feel close to the wildlife as you dine and watch the rhino-frequented waterhole from above as you tuck into international flavours.

Start your day with a deliciously filling continental breakfast, and then take a glimpse into African culture on board a safari. Learn from the guides as you explore the bush and glimpse the local inhabitants, including giraffes, rhino, buffalo, monkeys, warthogs, zebras, and more. Remember to take your camera to capture the animals roaming free in their natural habitat.

The air-conditioned safari tents are situated on raised walkways. These spacious tents have wooden floors and offer luxury as well as comfort, while spectacular views of the reserve are offered from the doorway. Other features include mosquito nets, tea and coffee making facilities, and a private deck for viewing the scenery.
