This large and very beautiful plot of land situated on a fishing tenda (sandy bay) of the River Gambia near Essau Village in Lower Nuimi. It has stunning views across the river to Banjul and a bush area at the back which is home to countless birds, monkeys and other wildlife. It is a very unusual and historic as the old kings tenda and bantaba were situated there and their graveyards are nearby. It always looks green because of the many Neem (Cassia) trees, and is slightly elevated and so never becomes flooded in rainy season.
The compound has large mature mango, cashew and other fruit trees such as a huge tree, locally known as Ditta, which bears wonderful fruit, there are also banana plants. There are many other large trees such as Boabab, Cotton Silk and others. There are four basic houses and two sheds.
The village is a short walk away through an old mango grove which also serves as the village prayer ground. Essau Major Health Centre is also close by. The ferry crossing from Barra to Banjul is a short distance, alternatively with a boat; one can cross to Banjul in 10 to 15 minutes from the compound.
The border with Senegal is a half an hour drive and points of interest nearby are Fort Bullen in Barrra, built by the British to fight slavery and the villages of Juffreh and Albreda and Kunte Kinteh Island which are well known as major tourist destinations.
