About The Owner

I am mad about Africa especially the music, the exuberance of the people and the loveliness of the children.I have been slowly building up my compound in Gambia since 2003.I am usually occupying the main house from November to April and two young African friends are there permanently to look after the place, myself and guests. We will ensure you are comfortable and not at a loss for anything.

I am a voracious reader and a lover of the theatre, films, music and art. I have traveled extensively myself. I run a charity -Kotu Kids- helping vulnerable families in a nearby area.

I am now mostly retired but previously worked as a self employed artist and performer specialising in Storytelling, puppetry and leading djembe drum workshops
