About Time is a natural, tranquil paradise right on the beach but only 40 minutes from the airport. Stay in traditional African roundhouse chalets with ensuite bathroom and solar generated electricity.
 Fall asleep to the sound of the waves breaking and gentle calls from the jungle. There is a beach bar, volley ball court and restaurant including vegan options. Share our golden sands and warm blue sea with turtles, ospreys and flamingos, and the jungle with monkeys, antelope, mongoose and more.

About Time is run by British veterinary surgeon and conservationist Dr Iain McGill, in partnership with Gambian business partner Abou Bah and Manager Kitabu. At the moment we have an orphaned baby Patas monkey called Bravo, who we are coaxing back into the wild! She is super-smart and hilariously naughty, but About Time is fun! - with a beach bar, restaurant, live music, surfing, volley ball, a small library and more. We have acres of land with a huge Cashew tree with a hammock that people tend to chill under, as well as many trees including fig, banana, palms, coconut, orange and lime - as well as many species which local herbalists and magic-men use. Kartong is a world renowned bird-watching site and we can organise bird watching and river safaris, as well as trips to Senegal by sea or the river Hallahin. For longer safaris we can escort you on nature safaris up-river to see chimpanzees, hippos, crocodiles, baboons, monkeys and mysterious ancient standing stones, as well as bringing you back down-river in the luxurious African Queen boat. We aim to protect and conserve the beautiful nature and wildlife here and so any animal (except a mosquito) arriving at About Time is protected - for it's also a wildlife sanctuary. About Time employs skilled craftsmen, carpenters, masons and chefs, as well as local staff for whom we provide on the job training and education. We are off-grid and source food locally and organically. We build and craft from local materials, and recycle as much of what we use or find as possible - we are Wombles at heart!

Kartong, West Coast Region, Gâmbia

About Time is in the ever-so-friendly eco-tourist part of Gambia, and you will be safer than in any city or on any beach in the Western world! There's no real need to leave About Time, as it's a large and gorgeous piece of paradise, with acres of golden sand and jungle and loads to do (including stopping Bravo the monkey from stealing your mobile, pen or book!)- but the ancient village of Kartong is less than a mile away. It is the Southern most edge of Gambia, bordered by the River Hallahin - and on the opposite bank lies Senegal. Kartong has a beautiful, slow, friendly and ancient way of life - and though the more prosperous citizens now have mains electricity, it's a cultural cul-de sac - and the market underneath the huge mango tree at the village's centre carries on much as it did thousands of years ago, and goats, cows and children still stroll nonchalantly across the narrow streets. There is a sacred crocodile pool in the village which is well worth a visit, as well as the cafe's, bars and restaurants. Shops provide visitors with all they could need. Not far from About Time there is the "Reptile Farm" which is a zoo of the strange local amphibians and reptiles - which all get released again after a year. A short walk along the beach or through the jungle leads to Sandele lodge, which has wi-fi. The whole region is magical and steeped in mysticism - if you don't believe in Magic - well you might by the time you leave!

I plan on being in Gambia for February and March, but Manager Kitabu is on hand 24/7 to sort everything out for you. Mariama, Sukei and (the second!) Mariama will tend to your rooms lovingly and launder for you too - and co-owner Abou Bah can help fix any bigger issues for you as well.
