Bafa resort at Banana Islands introduces the concept of ‘Glam Camping’ to Sierra Leone or ‘Glamping’ as it is also affectionately known. To the uninitiated, this means camping in luxury.
By purchasing a Resort Access Pass you can get complimentary transportation that takes you from Kent Village straight to the little paradise that is Bafa Beach. However, if budget is not an issue and you’d rather go all the way from Aberdeen, a chartered speedboat can be arranged that will take you all the way from Aberdeen to Bafa Beach. This is the more scenic route.
Once at the beach there are a variety of activities available. Get out and explore the Island bays in a kayak, a canoe or a pedal boat go snorkeling or if you don’t know how to swim, take free diving lessons. Go on a fishing trip whatever your specialty is, from Spear fishing, bottom fishing and trolling. Go on guided hiking trips across the island or historical tours around the village. Or if you just can’t be bothered, that’s fine you can laze about on the beautiful beach and have yourself a picnic, a sunbath or a nap in a hammock (yaaas!).
There is a bar stocked with alcohol and fresh cocktails and juice made from the island’s fruits and take our word for it – Banana Island has some truly tasty fruits. The cuisine combines Sierra Leonean flavour with international flare.
Bafa offers a fresh island and sea cuisine, a pristine beach and ocean adventures but you’ll have to wait to visit! After doing a soft opening from January to April 2017, Bafa Resort won’t be open till November 2017 after the rainy season, when it launches officially.
