If you are planning a Winter or Spring wedding and are wondering where to go for a peaceful honeymoon with guaranteed sunshine, no crowds and deluxe eco-friendly accommodation, look no further than Farakunku Lodges in The Gambia, West Africa. Here you can enjoy the ‘real’ Gambia in safe countryside surroundings with a local village and beautiful unspoilt beach just a short distance away. Discreet, personal service, from the owners (a British/Gambian couple) and their friendly Gambian staff, makes it very easy to tailor your holiday to include special days on the river Gambia, excursions to local markets and cultural centres and other areas.
Four spacious lodges, designed for couples only, are set in beautiful gardens with flowering trees and shrubs attracting colourful birds. Each light, airy lodge has a super-king size 4-poster bed with mosquito net canopy, en-suite modern shower room, walk in wardrobe/security room, inside and outside leisure seating, sun-beds, hammocks and private patio. There is a plunge pool for guests to enjoy, surrounded by a large terrace with more sun-beds.
Gambia enjoys a perfect climate from December to the middle of May, with temperatures in the high 20s, no rain and a sea breeze. With no humidity in these months, mosquitoes are scarce.
There are easy trips out to local places of interest with Moses, the owner/manager, taking care of you. Bikes are available for hire and self guided walks can be enjoyed from the lodges to the beach or local village. Free car transport to and from the beach is all part of the inclusive service.
Direct morning flights from London, Manchester and Birmingham take just under 6 hours so you can be relaxing outside your lodge by the same afternoon and reflecting on your special day.
