Simba Safari Camps

Welcome to Simba Kiang Camp - Gambia


  Simba Kiang Camp is set amongst a tropical garden  in a hidden corner of the lush African Forest. This private Camp is exclusive to the guests that are staying, a number that will not exceed 14 people.
Simba Kiang Camp has been uniquely tailored for the sophisticated adventurer, looking for a first class eco retreat. Four solar powered floating lodges and one stilted house are nestled into the privacy of the encompassing mangroves. Reached by elevated walkways or by dug out canoe – paddled by your own ‘man Friday’. The lodges offer 180-degree views of the Kiang Bolong (an idyllic tributary off the main river Gambia). Each handcrafted wood lodge features a four-poster carved bed fitted with crisp white linens.

The en-suite eco friendly bathroom with tiled shower, state of the art composting toilets and solar heated water, opens on to the mangroves for a truly unique bathing experience. Fall asleep to the rhythmic sounds of the bush and awake to the distant call of the Muezzin from the neighbouring Kembujeh village.

The `Bush Trackers Breakfast´ is a chance to study, track and observe the wildlife and environment for a greater understanding of the eco-systems of The Gambia. This is an early morning excursion, exploring the forest, following the baboons as they pass through the canopy in search of food, marvel as the dawn chorus breaks turning the forest into a colourful display of tropical birds singing in the start of a new day. There is a chance to see mongoose playing in water pools or maybe monitor lizards lazily strolling along the river bank in search of breakfast.
