MAMA AFRICA

ART CENTER & ART RESIDENCE

“Mama Africa” is a little paradise next to the fishing village of Tanji / The Gambia! International renowned artist Isha Fofana has created a charming ambience: spacious artistic guesthouses, an exotic garden together with her unique gallery. Be inspired by arts & culture, meet people & enjoy nature, relax & taste the fresh cuisine. “Mama Africa” – feel the energy and appreciate the tranquillity.

At the same time, Mama Africa is a non-profit association that actively cares for and successfully supports women and girls. For Isha it is important to empower and help women them cope with the problems of everyday life so that they can master the future independently. The key is to ensure an environment for economic self-determination.

ART RESIDENCE

WHERE ART COMES TO NATURE

Mama Africa is a wonderful escape to be inspired by the art and culture of West Africa. Isha Fofana has created an exclusive atmosphere with her unique gallery, her natural garden – a green oasis – and the nine spacious, individually designed guesthouses. All rooms are artfully furnished and have a size of at least 50 square meters with a modern bathroom.

The Art Residence is located close to the sea – less than a 10-minute walk from the beach – and is an ideal starting point for further individual excursions to the countryside, e.g. a boat trip on the Gambia River or a trip to neighboring Senegal. The fish landing in Tanji is every day a colorful spectacle and the Tanji Bird Reserve is very close. And if you want, you can simply enjoy the warm Africa sun and the pleasant tranquillity of Mama Africa with the breeze from the ocean and let yourself be inspired by the artistic ambience.
