Is it safe to travel in Gambia, and is it safe at Nemasu?

There is virtually no crime at Nemasu; we have 24hr security, and we are off the beaten path, in a very peaceful part of the country. Having said that- it’s always a good idea to keep valuables in a safe place & be vigilant in general. You should not take valuables or large sums of money to the beach or display them in public. Visitors, both male and female, should be particularly cautious of young men locally known as ‘bumsters’ who approach tourists, particularly on beaches, offering unsolicited help. Bumsters often use romance in the hope of gaining money or other assistance. We advise you be polite but firm in declining unwanted help or attempts at conversation. This is particularly common in Senegambia.


Are the mosquitoes bad?

Mosquitos are common in the rainy season (July – November) and not very common in the dry season; from December to June, they’re not frequent. Having said that, malaria is common in the Gambia, so it’s strongly recommended to take malaria pills.


Is the water & the food safe?

We serve only purified water, and wash our food in this same clean water. Our kitchen staff adhere to consistently high levels of cleanliness; you have no need to worry.


Do I need to tip?

Tipping is not necessary, but appreciated; if you feel you have had good service, a tip up to 10% is normal.


Are airport pickups available for late night flight arrivals?

We offer 24/7 airport pick-up.

Can I pay with credit card?

Very few places in Gambia are able to accept credit cards, and there are very few ATM’s. We strongly recommend you bring cash. We can change money at Nemasu and you can pay in foreign currencies. We have a safe for you to store your valuables.

Are airport pick ups available?

Yes, we can pick you up at the airport: cost is €30 or £25 for the 1 hour trip, up to 3 people, or €45 or £40 for 3-6 people. There is a 25% surcharge for arrivals after 11pm.
