Located on Cape Point Beach, one of The Gambia's most tranquil and unspoiled beaches.

Every time we return, there is always a new development - By November, the first floor will be finished, adding 2 one-bedroom suites and 3 superior rooms to the 2 two-bedroom apartments and 6 standard rooms they now have.

Welcoming and family-friendly

Bojang River Lodge has welcomed a steady stream of visitors over the past 18 months, some of whom have returned.  The Lodge has also hosted weddings and birthday celebrations for as many as 300 guests.

They are presently giving a reduced rate for their standard room D2000 per night and the self-catering apartment with two bedrooms D3300 per night till the end of September.

Beautiful, well-kept gardens

The gardens are home to a wide variety of plants and trees, including ornamental and fruit trees and plants, as well as children-sized chairs and tables and a playpen for the babies - Bring your children's toys to play with.

You should go check out their swimming pools because they are absolutely unique and one of a kind in The Gambia – we haven’t seen anything like them, truly unique.

The swimming pools are open to non-guests between 11 am and 5 pm; the Love Island Pool Bar serves drinks and snacks all day, while the main menu is offered from 1 pm.

Pool Rates

  • Adults D300
  • Children D150

Bojang River Lodge is the spot for you if you're looking for a unique setting for your upcoming launch, party, celebration, or event, thanks to its outdoor stage and bantaba area.

You can get in touch with them to make a reservation for accommodation or an event booking via Messenger, call or Whatsapp, email, website, Facebook or Instagram

Founder, Just Act Gambia
Jane first travelled to Janjanbureh, The Gambia, in February 2004 for just one week through an educational link. That was enough to capture her heart, and she decided to try and support the community in some small way. On subsequent visits, staying with Tida Manka, the then retired Head Teacher of the Methodist Lower Basic School, she met her brother, the late Foday Jibani Manka (later to become the National Assembly Member). Foday had immense historical and cultural knowledge of the island, and Jane felt this knowledge should be shared. Seeing some tourists coming to the island with guides from the coast, not always with accurate knowledge to convey, Jane suggested that some local young people should be trained to become local tour guides and that a local skills centre which she had supported from the onset should be used to provide training in providing goods and services for tourists. Thus began her main aim of training Official Local Tour Guides recognised by the Gambia Tourism Board. She decided that setting up a charitable status would be advisable. It was to be a long task and finally achieved but since 2017 has been superseded by a much greater initiative through YEP Gambia, which is chronicled elsewhere on this site. Just Act Gambia became a recognised charity in early 2010. Just Act Gambia has developed through collaboration with the local community and various initiatives in response to local needs.
