  Camp de Lion
by sachara

For camping Camp de Lion is a very beautiful spot, situated in the middle of the park at the Gambia River. We red, that is was possible to put your own tent here or hire a hut.

When we arrived at this place (November 2004) we were very surprised to see the bad condition of the place. It looked reallly abandoned and neglected. The huts were all ruined. The guide told us the area was recently flooded by the river.

I hope they will rebuild this lovely place very soon. If you like to see the place like it was not far before, look at the page of johnsakura

We deciced to take a room in Hotel de Simenti. Our fellowtravellers slept in their tents between the ruined huts and animal night life.
