Travel to Gambia

The Islamic Republic of the Gambia is a unique country in Africa that has just one border. It’s also the smallest country on mainland Africa, with coastline on the Atlantic Ocean. Independent since 1965, the Portuguese and Senegalese influences are strong within the culture of this nation.

Traders have utilized the lands of Gambia for more than 1,000 years, thanks to the movement of the Gambia River and its coastal location. From the Mali Empire to the European Colonial Era, its people have stayed true to their roots and this has led to some unique historical sites to visit. The largest concentration of stone circles seen anywhere in the world can be found in Gambia today.

You’ll find beaches, shopping, nightlife, and safaris available as the cornerstone of a visit to Gambia. Sacred crocodile pools and other opportunities to experience local life are mixed in with the modern amenities of cities like Banjul to create a unique opportunity to explore. Farming and fishing dominate the culture here, but it is also one of the best places to kick back on the beach and relax an afternoon away.

Don’t miss the uninterrupted strawberry sunsets that can be viewed along the horizons of the Atlantic Ocean.

Many opportunities in Gambia are packaged tours, especially for winter tourism, but you’ll also have plenty of time to explore spacious gardens while enjoying modern resorts. It is a nation where the sea, sand, sun, and nature come together with the perfect recipe and should not be missed.
