Land of smiles. The Gambia owes its name to its shape, but it could just as well be called this way because of the heartwarming smile that welcomes you.
This country is too beautiful to just lie on the beach. In The Gambia you are surrounded by tropical nature. The impressive Gambia River, flowing through the inland, is lined with green natural parks. You will encounter animals that you can only find in the zoo back home: crocodiles, monkeys, hippos and more than 450 colourful species of birds. Visit one of the national parks, but don’t forget the savannah, mangroves and salt plains.
Its sparkling white beaches and clear, warm sea make The Gambia a popular destination for a sun holiday. Sip a cocktail at one of the many beach bars on lively Kololi beach. Or discover The Gambia’s most popular beach, Kotu.
If you like fishing, then you can try your luck on the rivers or sea, just like the locals do.
The Gambia has a high level of culture, with a long history of slavery and many different influences in dance and music.
