Many years ago, Halahin lodge was used as a farm where Buba Jaiteh, the owner of Halahin Eco Lodge, and his forefathers harvested different types of trees, crops and vegetables for family consumption and commence. The piece of land (Halahin) was ever lucrative as it supported Plowing, seeding and harvesting for many decades and as a result of its proximity to the beach it was also a hub where the forefathers of Buba Jaiteh together with their family members would meet to enjoyed the breeze, sun and shadow of many trees that were there for centuries.
Sitting in the shadow of one of the beautiful trees a dream was born. Buba became older and had a vision to turn part of the Halahin land to a beautiful natural chill spot, something different from the usual lodges and hotel, somewhere that people would have a great taste of nature. He started building small houses on the land for people to stay and enjoy the beauty of this place in the Gambia, to enjoy the nature, the birds, the ocean, waving palm trees and the real Gambian way of life.
One baby step at a time Halahin began to unveil as one of the most attractive Eco-Lodges in The Gambia. It’s a magical place, at the ocean, in the middle of nature with many trees and birds around you. It’s not easy to explain the energy of this paradise in words. You have to experience it for yourself and you will know!
