We are Black and White. We are a local homestay. We want to welcome you at the cozy beach side of Banjul, where the true Banjul experience is waiting for you, where you will enter into the community of beautiful people, where you will listen to true local stories, if you open your ears, where the real local juice is growing on the trees, if you open your eyes, where the calmness of the Gambian River meats the big Ocean, where Black and White is One.

The space
Our homestay is very basic, but familiar. It´s still under construction, but it offers already everything you need to relax yourself. In the evening hours we sit together in the sand, listen to some nice Reggae vibez, chat about life and drink attaya - the local tea.
In your room you will find a toilet and a shower, compliant with the local circumstance (access to running water). Please mind, coming to an African country and staying at a local homestay might ask for more tolerance and acceptance - we are blessed to be on the electricity powerline of the city, but light can always go off. We have fresh water, sometimes you will have to use the basket, if the tap is closed. Please ask yourself weather you are used to more comfortness. Then a hotel might be the better option for you.

Guest access
It is an open area. You can relax on the beach side with provided sun bed or you enjoy yourself in our new coming hammock. Without any huzzle, just freedom of mind. Security is always guarantee. Nice to be nice.

Other things to note
Once again: we are there to mix black and white, to merge with the locals - not an anonymous hotel. We might not be perfect in everything but we promise that you can free your mind with us and can enjoy it to the most: alwas nice to be nice.

Me, as an European, will be there for any requests. I can even offer you a local day tour where you will get to understand the fascinating sides of our two cultures. There is a lot to learn. I can promise ;)

Location

Banjul, Gambia

Unfortunately, Banjul is very forgotten in the tourist´s eye. We observe the ups and downs of the packaged tourism, which is taking place not very far at the only hotel at the beach side of Banjul.
So we decided to make a change and offer people a place to stay, where they can meet with the locals and feel the life of a Banjulian. Surely, you might bring more resistance regarding your comfort and hygenic standards, but even more you will be rewarded by feeling the heart of the community. We want to mingle with different cultures, hear stories from around the globe and show you how we live.

Hey I am a world open girl who decided to leave Germany for a while in order to find peace at the paradise place of Gambia. All we need is bridges, not walls. So, merging with the locals of another culture is always the most enriching time you can spend abroad. Welcome to see you soon.
