Luxury safari tents on a wildlife reserve in Senegal, not far from the border with The Gambia, in an area of approximately 6,000 hectares of protected forest that's home to zebra, giraffes, warthogs, monkeys, the endangered Western Giant Eland antelope, rhino and more.

Each of the 19 ‘Luxury Tented Suites’ is air-conditioned and features a four-poster bed, private terrace and ensuite facilities including a deep free-standing bath and an outdoor shower.

Under the shade of a magnificent Mahogany tree, the ‘Deluxe Tented Suite’ has all the above facilities with the addition of an outdoor jacuzzi. It’s the perfect place to unwind after a morning safari, watching the free-roaming wildlife while sipping a glass of chilled champagne.

The tents are on raised platforms linked to the reception, restaurant and swimming pool by wooden walkways. Most of the animals are free to roam around the reserve and may wander right up to your accommodation.

While not on the scale of safaris in other parts of Africa, Senegal is within easy reach of the UK and is a cost-effect introduction to African wildlife. The nearest airport is at Banjul in The Gambia, which is less than a 6-hour flight from London. Fathala is a great addition to a twin or multi-centre holiday and can easily be combined with hotels in The Gambia, such as Mandina Lodges and Ngala Lodge.

Children over four years old are welcome. Please contact the hotel for more information.
