Tamala Africa on Google Maps!

If you want to come and find us in the Gambia, have a look at this map! Anyone you ask in Manjai Kunda will guide you to our compound, so no need for a map really. But for those of you who find it interesting, here you go! And why not print a copy before you come, so you can find the shortest way to the beach, Serrekunda market or other nice places? Because believe us, there are many roads to choose from around here 🙂
