You can simply make use of the comfortable accommodation as a base to explore the local village and the countryside beyond. Or, you can let us fully cater your stay allowing you the time and freedom to participate in our community projects. Our Swiss trained chef, Ensa, produces a range of European and Gambian dishes which are all served family style at our communal table.


WYCE staff are on duty 24 hours a day to ensure that you have an enjoyable and safe stay in the heart of the village of Madina Salam.


So if you want a couple of days away from the tourists in Senegambia, a few days (or more) working on one of our projects, or are just passing through, then why not contact us for availability.


All meals are served family style. Special dietary requirements can be catered for with advance notice.


The lodge runs a honesty bar with a range of soft drinks, water and local beer on sale at a reasonable cost.
