They offer accommodation to both locals and international guests in a sustainable and environmentally friendly way. Preservation of the environment is promoted as of the greatest importance at the Lodge.
In Dalaba Eco-Lodge the sustainable maintenance of indigenous and native fauna and flora is encouraged to prevent the depletion of habitat for the wildlife that lives side by side with the occupants. You can spot different varieties of birds both visiting and resident, so it’s a great place for birders and birdwatchers.
Dalaba Eco-Lodge plays host to the International Bird Fair and Eco Tourism Conference that takes place on site, organised by Eco Travel Gambia. This event is an annual programme that brings together environmentalists, conservationists and bird and nature lovers from across the world and within The Gambia to share ideas and success stories, to elevate the youths and population of South Gambia. All is geared towards sensitization of the population on the role they can play in preserving their environment.
They partner with many local projects in Gunjur and amongst them is the Fayunku Community Nursery School. This project helps in providing opportunities for future generations in the local community by giving them a better start in early childhood education. Guests at the lodged are encouraged to make a mark in the community by either supporting a child or taking part in project work at the School premises.
Dalaba Eco-Lodge is here to encourage global co-operation through eco-tourism.
Dalaba Eco-Lodge also actively encourages volunteers to join their dedicated team on the ground, which allows people from other places to play their part in the work carried out in the local and the larger community.
