A safe and comfortable place from which to explore The Gambia



The name Picca Laa means “Birdsong” in the local dialect as it is situated next to the biggest bird reserve in The Gambia near to the traditional fishing village of Tanji.

Picca Laa began as a shared vision between local Gambian businessman, Paul Jallow, and his European partner and has evolved over 20 years into the Eco Lodge we see today with mains electricity and WiFi available for guests which means that they can keep in touch with home and business whilst enjoying a cold beer in the bar!

A family run eco-lodge, warm and friendly staff and just a great place to relax.”
