Resorts in Gambia

Banjul

Take a trip to Gambia and you will experience a true blend of history, beauty, glorious sandy beaches and endless sunshine. The local people are extremely friendly, which is one of the many reasons that people return here year after year.

 

For nightlife and a great choice of places to eat out visit Banjul the Islands capital.

If you are visiting with children then take a trip to the nature reserve to visit the monkeys or maybe let them try feeding time with the crocodiles.

Take a scenic river trip up the Gambia river and meander your way through swamps and mangroves, while watching out for glimpses of the local wildlife.

Visit Kachically crocodile farm and feed the crocs by hand, something to remember.

Peanuts feature in many of the local dishes as this is the local export.

Fresh fish is readily available especially barracuda, and don't forget to try the delicious local stews which are cooked on oopen fires, served with rice.

The larger resorts offer anything from Italian to Indian as well as the usual British style foods.

6 months validity required on passports from date of return, tourist tax payable on entry, undercurrents in the ocean can be strong, check with Doctor for vaccinations. During Ramadan restrictions may be imposed on alcohol.

The main tourist area is known as the "senegambia strip" and is in Kololi. This is where most of the Hotels are based as well as the tour operators. Use the small tour operators whose offices are on the main street. Highly recommend Tillys Tours, high standards, excellent service licensed and insured doing lots to help small businesses in Gambia and a good fair price. Look at the South Gambia Tour, Three in One, crocodiles crafts and culture - great days out.
