The Gambia is the smallest country in Africa but offers a big welcome. The tropical climate, friendly & peaceful people and abundant wildlife have made it one of the best winter sun destinations from Europe.
Sunshine is guaranteed from October through to June, but don’t dismiss the ‘Green season’ when sunshine is still to be had on most days (most of the rain is at night) and the country blossoms into a lush green paradise.
The Gambia is only a 5 or 6 hour flight away from Europe with little, time difference with no jet lag or lengthy recovery from traveling required. There are many reasons why the Gambia has one of the highest rates of return visitors in world tourism.
Inexpensive, safe and very friendly, for the European tourist, the Gambia provides a first class destination with good tourist attractions, tourism infrastructure and international travel connections.
Beautiful tropical beaches are a big attraction for visitors, but there are many other ways to enjoy the Smiling coast. The Gambia is also a top holiday destination for getting out and about for bird & wildlife watching, fishing, or simply cruising on the river
You can also play golf, take a trip to historic sites such as Jufureh (made famous by the ‘Roots’ book and TV series), or visit some of the many and varied markets.
Experience Gambian life by visiting a village or a school, and one thing you should not miss if you get the opportunity is to attend a Gambian celebration (called ‘programmes’) such as weddings or naming ceremonies.
Gambia is obsessed with football and watching the game with Gambians is a very different experience from anywhere else. There are even opportunities to learn Gambian-style: why not try your arm at drumming, dancing or cooking traditional Gambian food.
Evenings offer a wealth of food & drink options, music & dance and nightlife in the many bars, restaurants and clubs.
