From the Airport to Resort

Arriving at Banjul Int Airport is an experience for the first-time visitor. Once through the hustle and bustle of baggage reclaim you will find the airport and hotel/resort representatives waiting with their welcome signs.  If you’re an independent traveller and taxis are your preferred mode of transport, you will find fleets of both tourist taxis (green in colour) and local taxis (yellow in colour) at the main entrance of the airport. Even though the local taxis are much cheaper, we do recommend the tourist taxis for safety and minimum restrictions when entering tourist areas. With plans of major infrastructure improvements in The Gambia, with some works already started, the roads at present from the airport to the hotel areas, which is partially lit; does come with poor road surfaces and bad traffic - but with a safe and sturdy vehicle, transport takes approx. 20-30 minutes depending on traffic at the time of travel.

Kololi Area

Kololi Beach Resort is blessed to be in the heart of the Senegambia tourist region. With the newly completed conference centre next door, the Bijilo National Forest that takes just 5 minutes’ walk/cycle, as well as the lively Senegambia tourist ‘strip’ just 1-minute walk from Resort ; you will have the benefit of enjoying the relaxation of Kololi Resort as well as the convenience of the surrounding areas.    Some hotels have a taxi rank nearby. It is best to agree the price in advance and there should be a price board displaying the tariffs.
