Come to Gambia, West Africa & Travel its Unspoilt Coast

One of the smallest, unspoilt Africa countries, The Gambia is situated on the beautiful West African coast midway between the Tropic of Cancer and the Equator, on approximately the same latitude as Barbados. Mostly flat and shaped like a crooked finger, a narrow strip of land on either side of the majestic River Gambia from which it takes its name.

The capital, Banjul, located on the south side of the river estuary is the administrative and commercial centre of the country and is of minor cultural and historic interest to tourists. The majority of tourist hotels are several miles away, spread out along the coastline of the peninsular which boasts 25 miles of uncrowned sandy beaches.

Known as the smiling coast, The Gambia with its unsophisticated charm has much to offer all year round, sub-tropical climate, fascinating African culture, exotic gardens, miles of deserted beaches, nature reserves, quality hotels, craft markets, interesting excursions and some of the most friendly people on earth. The pace of life is slow and unhurried, perhaps frustratingly so, until you have had time to acclimatise.
