Nature Garden Gambia is a beautiful privately owned three-acre (1.3 hectare) walled garden with simple housing and outbuildings situated in the bush village of Bakary Sambouya, Brikama, The Gambia.
The land was purchased in early 2001 and since that time many local, and visiting, people have contributed to the conservation and transformation of the land into an organic and safe environment in which indigenous flora, fauna and wildlife thrive. It has also naturally developed as a place of employment, accommodation, education and refuge for many young people and is now ripe to enter a new phase of focused development for the alternative education and support of young people within the community.
If you are planning a trip to The Gambia, or are local to the Nature Garden, please feel free to come and see first-hand what we are doing. Visitors are always most welcome, and some simple accommodation or space for camping is available.
