Thinking of booking a holiday in The Gambia?

It’s a question that more and more people are asking: is a holiday in The Gambia a good idea?

If you ask anyone who has already been, the answer would be ‘absolutely’. Until recently, The Gambia was the best-kept secret of a few lucky holidaymakers. Not any more.

Just imagine....a five hour flight from Gatwick and you arrive in this West African tropical paradise. That’s right, just five hours! Plus, it’s in the same time zone as the UK – so no jet lag to worry about.

Before you know it you’ll be sitting on golden sands, sipping a cocktail and gazing at the sparkling ocean. But that’s not all this remarkable country has to offer.

The Gambia is one of the most welcoming places you could find and you’ll always be greeted with a smile. You can spend your time exploring bustling markets, visiting traditional villages, and sampling the exotic cuisine.

For nature lovers, there are a variety of national parks where you can experience the diverse wildlife, including monkeys, antelopes and more than 500 species of birds.

Make sure you take a river cruise – it’s an opportunity to completely unwind as you sail along the Gambia River on a luxury ‘piroque’ as the sun goes down. You could even try some fishing off the deck!

Where to stay in The Gambia

No matter how big your budget, there are plenty of apartments and hotels in Gambia, from affordable apartments, to luxury accommodation. The Gambia property market is booming at the moment so you’ll have a wide range to choose from. Here are some examples.

Things you need to know

Here are some tips to make the most of your holiday in Gambia:

1. You don’t need a visa to travel to The Gambia – just your passport. Make sure you have travel insurance.

2. Check with your GP about immunisations. Anti-malarial tablets, and some immunisations will be recommended.

3. You can visit any time of year, but November to June is often the best, as you’ll enjoy almost uninterrupted sunshine!

4. The country is small and easy to get around – find a good taxi driver or guide and you can’t go wrong!

5. It’s best to take some local currency and traveller’s cheques, as many places don’t take debit or credit cards.
