The Gambia with its magnificent coast invites visitors to laze and linger, tempting with luxurious beach resorts and bustling fishing villages. But there’s more to Africa’s smallest country than sun and surf. Stunning nature reserves, such as Kiang West National Park and River Gambia National Park and the historical slaving stations of St James Island and Jufureh offer peaceful breaks from the clamour of the nearby coast.
The Gambia coast offers miles of superb golden beaches and the vibrancy of Bakau, Serrekunda and the capital, Banjul, is as colourfully African as you might imagine. During the day, fish for Barracuda on the Atlantic Ocean, strike a bargain in one of the many markets and in the evening, sample the wide variety of Gambian cuisine.
The Gambia's idyllic cocktail of sunny days, warm welcomes and relaxing Atlantic beaches makes this a place you will not want to miss.
