I'm agree with you 100%.Originally Posted by Hippie
I have just returnd from the Gambia and thought I would post my thoughts and experiences. I do not think there any truly girl-friendly hotels in as much as they allow girls to spend the night with you at no extra charge. The extra fee for female company was 500 Dalasi at Sarge's in Senegambia and 600 Dalasi at African Village in Bakau. This is £11. 60 and £14 respectively. The alternative of going back to girl's compound (accommodation) which will not have running water and probably a mattress on the floor rather than a bed, is being uncomfortable and saving a paltry sum of money.
The girls come from all over West Africa and not just from the Gambia. Generally girls from Siera Leone are likely to smoke and drink copiously. This also applies to girls from Liberia and Nigeria whereas the local girls rarely smoke and rarely want anything other than a soft drink.
The vast majority of these women have undergone Female Genital Mutilation as children and I did not see a single clitoris during a 2 week trip. This does not stop them from being enthusiastic in bed.
The girls from Sierra Leone seem generally 'wilder' and if you want to hear someone say 'Do you want to vaginate my arse? ' in a thick West african accent, these may be for you but I have simpler needs.
Overall a very good experience. It is nice to get away from cold, wet Northern Europe to sunny, hot Africa.

I know that the Bensouda family own the building. Two years ago they rented it to an English couple who let the apartments out and had a nice restaurant there, but they couldn't make it pay and moved away. I think the Bensoudas are now running it themselves. I believe it's not girl friendly though. Better would be Dandimayo which I think you know. They were charging 1,000 dalasi per night plus 250 if you took a girl back. That was January this year and I think included breakfast. Dandimayo is also a bit nicer inside than Seabreeze.
Thanks; these e-mail i got also; hadn´t worked. Now i got one, but i will call
them for information if the other will be not well.
Also the Dandimayo e-mail didn´t work. Surprised; for more than 4 weeks i
expect a monthly/fix rate.
I will have a look; and hope to make the right choise.
In 2006; i was so angry about my acommodation; this time, if i will have the
same expirience, i will move after one night.
Thx and cheers; are you living in Pattaya ?
I have posted this elsewhere, hope it is ok to paste it in here as well, as I do not want to type it out all again. Just looking for opinions. Okay guys, I have only been to Gambia and that was over 5 years ago now. I planning a week away after the new year and many people recommend Kenya over Gambia.
Is this mainly because now gambia Dalasi is very strong and girls are more expensive?
This is my take on things, if going for longer than a week it would appear Kenya would win out. But for one week in Gambia the airfare is at least about 100 pound cheaper and flying time 3 hours less. Girls appear to be more expensive but 500d is the most I will pay, and from my experience of Asia you will always get girls that ask for more, but many will settle for that if not you will easily find one that will. Okay girls in Kenya about half that price, but over seven days would not make much difference I guess.
Advantage Kenya has more girl friendly hotels, but the Liverpool arms in Gambia would meet my requirement for my stay and price is okay.
The rest is all the same beer a little over one pound amybe alitle more expensive but not much. A beach is a beach so does not matter to me can chill out with book and a beer and sun bath.
I like to smoke on holiday and Gambia easy to get some green, but be discrete anyway, same would apply to Kenya but I have smoked before in Gambia without any problems. Both police are corrupt but more of a problem in kneya.
Hotel I have looked at same price and adequate.
Just want opinions.
I reckon for one weeks holiday Gambia is the easier option but for longer I would say Kenya, as they have more variety and cheaper girls, but for a week gambia has more than enough to keep you occupied.
What are the thoughts from you guys that have done both.
I will certainly be doing both, it just be dependent on how long I go away for which I would choose.
Heads up for fellow shaggers…
The first two pictures are of Fatou, from Senegal. She usually hangs out in Senegambia around the area behind Yasmina and in the Casino behind Yasmina. I sometimes see her in the same area during the day having coffee with the pimp she is supporting. I saw her for the first time in the Casino one night after about ten Jelbrews and I had to have it. We agreed to a certain amount for all night. I think it was something like D800. I shagged it one time that night and then again the next morning. When I was hitting it in the morning she suggested we do some doggie. Peterman likes doggie style so I had her roll over and get up on her hands and knees. Because I was a bit drunk and because it was dark the night before when we got undressed this was the first time I had a good chance to see her tits out of the too small push-up bra. It was now obvious that she had a kid back in Senegal she was supporting (the women here will nurse their kids for two years with the resulting damage it can do). When she was on her hands and knees her tits almost hung down to touch the bed! I had a go of it anyway. Her tits were making so much noise slapping together while I was banging her from the Tail-Gunner position that I was starting to lose my hard-on! For Real! I had to stop and have her put the bra back on to control the noise so that I would be able to drop the morning bomb load! I managed to get the job done. Right on Target! We showered and got dressed. I call a taxi driver that I know to come and get her. He is on his way so I go to give her the agreed on D800 and then she said it was going to be D2000. That wasn’t going to happen! After a lot of arguing back and forth my taxi driver shows up. I told her that I didn’t have any more money that I would have to hit the bank machine in Senegambia. She took the D800 as a down payment. The reality was, I was going to take her back to Senegambia and kick her ass out of the taxi. We get to Senegambia and she wouldn’t get out of the taxi. I decide to get out of the taxi and be rid of that Bit**, but before I jump out she grabs me $400 Samsung D880. I had a hell-of-a-time prying it out of her hand. I give the driver D100 and tell him to take her anywhere she wants to go. Big mistake! I got out of the taxi and walked up to the highway and caught another taxi home. As I got close to the compound where I live I see a taxi parked out front. As I got closer I see Fatou in the back of the taxi with my trusted driver at the wheel. The Bit** and my trusted taxi driver had beat me back to my comfound! I am starting to get really hot by now. She starts to make a stink in front of my compound with the locals walking by taking notice. I couldn’t let this happen. At one point I say to her, “do you want me to take you to the Tourist Police?” To which she replies, “go ahead”. I was hoping that because she was from Senegal that that would scare her and she would just go away. I didn’t work so I jump in the taxi and order the driver to go to the Senegambia police station. We get there and I ask to see a tourist policeman. The three of us sit down in the back office and she tells him her side of the story (in the local language, of course) and I tell him mine. After about 45 minutes I could see it was clear that I was not going to win this one. The tourist policeman was on the side of his sister. Finally in frustration I reach in my pocket and pull out everything I had (about D250) and tell them to take it or leave it. The tourist policeman talks to her in the local language. She begrudgingly accepts. I guess I got off cheap. I have heard stories where similar things have happened and it cost the guy two to three thousand and even a short stay in jail!
The second set of pictures is Sal (nudes, by-the-way). I believe she is around 19 and Gambian. She is an excellent shag and has the firmest tits I have ever had the pleasure to squeeze! Over about a year and a half I think I have shagged her six or seven times. The first three or four times it didn’t cost anything. The last time I shagged her I think I gave her D400 to D500 (She is learning very quickly by her association with tourist). That is all well and good but I made the mistake of giving her my phone number whereas she keep calling me and building this elaborate bullshit story how someone impersonated her and took D20, 000 out of her bank account (If this story was for real how do you think she accumulate D20, 000 when the going monthly wage is around D1,300/mo?). I could see where this was going. Peterman stopped answering the phone. It didn’t stop her from sending text messages. One of the last ones she sent said something like, “if you do not answer your phone I am going to see the police about you”, bla, bla, bla… Have not seen or heard from her since. Thank God! No matter how great a shag it was, Peterman won’t be going there again!
Heads-up on another scam I heard about. A friend (a Brit that has relocated to Gambia) of mine picked up a girl in a quiet off Senegambia bar. He said she was 18 (not sure if he checked her ID or not). She tries to convince him to take her to her place. He got a bad feeling about that but with the little head thinking for the big head he talks her into going down to the beach to fuck in his SUV. She makes a few calls (in which she speaks one of the local languages) before they finish their drinks (I’m guessing he needed to kill some time for the Vit-V to kick in) and leave the bar. They almost get to the beach and this cop jumps out of the bushes and stops them. The cop is convinced she is under aged. To make a long story short, it cost him D2, 000 and one wasted Vit-V. I sure would like to know what the cut was between the cop and the girl!
I understand that the current ‘take’ on the age of consent in Gambia is 18. BUT, if she is over 18 (19, 20, 21…) and still attending secondary school, she is jail bait-keep your hands off!!!
Just a thought - for the guy that is looking for a good, clean, reasonable priced, girl-friendly place to stay, why don’t you stay at John Crocodile’s Guest house? It is in the same area as the Bamboo Garden. I think there are about 12 rooms at the compound. I stayed there for about four months one time. Never did I have any problems. About a year ago John sold his compound to Allen. Allen has the same management philosophy as John had (still girl friendly). Send a PM for the number. By the way, John Croc is still around-just retired.
One other thing that I wanted to add…
I have been told SLOK, the airline of the Gambia has ceased to operate (bankruptcy) and Air Senegal frequently cancels a lot of their flights to and from Banjul. So, if to get to the Gambia you have to come and go through Dakar (like I do) because of where you live you will need to get ground transport. It can be a real Goat-Fuck! I have got to know a reliable taxi driver that takes me from the Gambia to the airport and picks me up at the airport when I return. It will usually cost me around $225 o/w. There are several alternate ways to do it that are much cheaper. It will involve a walk on ferry ride (Ferry ride = D5) across the river. Be EXTREMELY careful! There are dozens of pick pockets on the ferry, in the crowd to get on and off the ferry and in the ‘terminal’. I knew this and I was watching. About six months ago before I met my taxi driver I was returning to the Gambia and had a wireless mouse taken from a pocket on my backpack. I have been all over the world and this is the only time I have been pick pocketed! One time while dropping a friend off at the ferry I caught a guy with his hand in my pocket (he didn’t get my money that was in that pocket). I know two friends that were traveling across the ferry that had their purses cut with a razor and had their cell phones removed.
When the ferry shuts down at night all the pick pockets must go to WaaW. That is only other time I ever had a problem with them in the Gambia. While trying to get up the crowded stairs to get into WaaW late one night I felt many hands on my pockets feeling for money. My buddy who was with me lost D2, 000 and he is a retired cop! I had a friend lose his cell phone while in WaaW late one night. The dumb shit was drunk and was wearing it on his belt!
After saying all of the above, I would not hesitate to go anywhere, alone, late at night in the Gambia.
Gambia can be fun-always keep your eyes open.
Nice informative report that you posted. Although these scams are a bit worrying. I just was planning on a having a relaxing beach holiday a few beers, a nice bit of weed to smoke in my rooom, and a girl every day. Do not really care about long time, but have a good session maybe a good couple of hours of banging a nice African chick, paying 500 and carrying on with my realxing.
I have a few questions, as I have set limits and budget, even though I can spend more I am a seasoned traveler and usualy stick to my guns as it allows me to visit more places and have more holidays throuhout the year.
Will 500 be enough to pay the girls, as I know they will want more but 500 is still good money in the gambia and I reallly do not want to pay more. I would make sure the girl understood this before agreeing!
Also what is the current prices of a beer, in dalsi please?
And what is the cost of that guesthouse you mention crocidille and can you pm me number or e mail for it please.
Exhcange rates for the pound are shit so I need to get my costings right, the dolar is going to go up a lot soon, put the pound will probaly tank so it will be very helpful if you put costings in dalsii, thank you
Good report you did please if you can reassure that not all the girls are scammmers, and that most will just except the agrred amount and leave it at that.
Thanks mate and I hope you will be able to answer some of my questions.
Brian723... Croc John's is in Fajara, and while Fajara is a holiday resort, the accomodation is quite a way from the beach. So if you want a beach holiday, as you state, I would stay around the Senegambia/Kololi/Kotu area. Liverpool Arms is good but I think that Dandimayo would prove best for your activities although a bit more expensive.
You have to really be careful with the P4P girls. Make sure you 100% agree on what's required and expected before taking a girl. They can get real nasty. Also make sure everything is bolted down in your room. They will pinch anything. Aftershave is a favourite.
I think Peterman will confirm the price of Julbrew which I advised on another forum.
Peterman...You are accurate in your posts. I know that it's not easy, or comfortable, to get from the airport in Dakar to Gambia by road, and $225 one way is too much and about the cost of the airfare. I think I would rather have a night in a hotel than endure a six hour plus car journey driven by what are some of the worst drivers I have experienced (and I live in Thailand). On top of that it's uncertain how long you'll have to wait for the ferry at Barra. I have driven from Gambia to Dakar both ways and I wouldn't do it again. Surely it's best to fly even if they cancel the flight and you have to wait for the next one. They only fly once daily but with the closure of Slok Air they will be busier and therefore less likely to cancel a flight. Actually, I was unaware that Slok had wound up. Are you sure?
I'm getting ready to check out of the hotel. I'm heading to the U.A.E. and because of the communication blackout there I'm not sure when I'll be able to get back to you. I have not had any experience with a proxy server yet -I'm going to give it a try.
I think you will have to become a member to send or receive a pm.
Jelbrews - as cheap as D18 if you buy it by the case at numberous 'container' outlets and put it in your room refer. Senegambia - D25 to D35 a bottle. Waaw - a bottle will set you back D50 (paying for the entertainment aren't you)! Best deal is a full pint of draft at Amsterdam Dolphin for D40. The food ain't bad there either.
I am not a 100% sure on SLOK. The is what I am being told by my Mate with feet on the ground.
You are correct $225 is a lot of money, but he is a good driver and all I have to do is to sit back and try to relax. And yes, I have had to wait up to two and a half hours to get on the ferry in the taxi. Walk on is no wait.
p.s. only the pros (from Liberia or SL) will drink a brew.
Please do not take his advice lightly - I speak from experience == that anyone trying to sell you green in Gambia or offering a puff is MORE THAN LIKELY selling you a bag of beach sand or, worse, setting you up for an expensive meeting with an undercover cop.Originally Posted by Brian723
My overall feeling is that Gambians are totally immersed in the tourist ripoff culture. Not so much for the Kenyans. And that's hard for me to say, because I have in all had much more fun in West Africa than East Africa.
I'm going to the Gambia in some weeks. Like to shag as many as possible girls. Heard about Greenline Motel near Lana-Bar in serrekunda. Some 15-20 *****s are on the premises, seem to live there, girls from 18yrs old. Rooms seem 300 dalasi with fan. In banjul ferry guesthouse (400D)with girls living and servicing in the hotel.
Wanne ask if anybody knows more places like these?
I like to go hunting together with a fellow-hunter?
I was one evening in Serekunda; no traffic lights; a dusty road; like a slum
area. The Greenline Motel; i looked into the entrance area; looked in a
average condition; more fore the locals; but not dirty; maybe for a beer.
It was early; round 8 pm; so i saw no customer in the bar area.
But try it; it was not unsafe.
Normaly i stay in Kololi or the Palma Rima Road near Atlantic Dolphins.
Cheers; in december in Gambia
I'm going to Gambia for the first time shortly. This forum has been helpful and a lot of good information here. It's clear to me that finding company in Gambia isn't too hard task to do. I'm not a great fan of totally shaven, or even too much trimmed pussy. Does the majority of Gambian girls shave and is it hard to find an unshaven girl from there.
I am moving to Gambia this weekend for a month or so.I will apppreicate the following info from you guys:
1. Any nice/good priced hotels g.f(around 500-600 usd per month)
2. Any contacts/best hotels/clubs for hunting
3. Any place to find russian/chinese females.
4. And of course any nice place to dine in.
Steve,can you help me out here please?
This is a great forum and hopefully you will be able to offer me some advice.
I am heading for The Gambia for a week or so in early September. Never been before and shall be staying with relatives in Fajara. Seems that they intend being very hospitible which is great but its going to severely cramp my style in the evenings and at weekends when they are not working. Have told them I am more than happy to amuse myself but they are being insistant. Just as well the daytimes during the week are mine!
Have been a frequent visitor to Pattaya, Thailand so I am not totally green but things do appear to operate very differently in The Gambia. Is there any equivalent to the Freelancer bars? If not can you recommend a decent parlour or other means / location where you can pick up girls during the day? Am not looking for a relationship so professionals or sideliners (who are in full time employment but are looking to supplement their income) are fine but they would have to be available during the daytime / early evening.
Am really hoping you can help otherwise I am going to be like a kid in a sweet shop with no money.
Not easy to find daytime action in Gambia. Try the bars along and just off Kololi Highway. That's the road leading from the Palma Rima hotel going towards Serrekunda i.e. away from the beach going inland. Amsterdam Dolphin is located here so if you ask a taxi driver for Amsterdam Dolphin you will alight at the correct area. 1)Try Relax bar next door, 2)walk across the road and try the small bars in the side streets 3) walk further up the road and there are Guinean bars and there used to be a Liberian bar opposite the Liverpool Arms. Try Time Out located between Palma Rima and Senegambia and try Yasmina's at Senegambia. Failing all that you could try a walk along the beach between Senegambia and Kotu. You will often be accosted by a girl offering massage. Be lucky!Originally Posted by Theshagmaster
