WYCE Volunteer and Visitor Accommodation Bookings

Amenity: Wall safe

Backpacker/Hostel Room

If you’re travelling or exploring on your gap year then you should put the WYCE compound on your travel itinerary. It’s the perfect place to start or finish your tour of West Africa and, as long as you stay for 3 nights or more, you’ll get free transfers to and from Banjul airport.

Staying in a hostel room means you’ll be sharing with up to three other people and accommodation is bed and breakfast only, to give you the freedom to travel without having to conform to meal times. However, if you want additional meals at the lodge, then just let us know and we’ll organise that too.
