For such a small country, The Gambia packs in plenty of experiences. There’s no better way to squeeze in as many as possible than to build your own holiday from scratch, giving you a taste of The Gambia’s beautiful beaches, diverse wildlife and fascinating culture – all on one trip.
A holiday to The Gambia is far more than just a sun, sea and sand escape. Here are the options available to you when you book a tailormade holiday with The Gambia Experience, the destination specialists for over 30 years.
Stay at more than one hotel
Why settle for one hotel, when you can stay at three? Each hotel in The Gambia is completely unique, giving you the chance to see all the different sides of the country. Reconnect with nature along the riverside at Mandina Lodges, spend two days with chimpanzees at the Chimp Rehabilitation Project Camp upriver before finishing off your holiday with a taste of luxury at award-winning Ngala Lodge.
Pick some tours and excursions
No trip to The Gambia would be complete without discovering the culture and wildlife that sits right on your doorstep. From sunset river cruises and birdwatching tours, to home-cooking experiences with the locals, there’s plenty you can add to your holiday to make your visit to ‘The Smiling Coast’ even more memorable.
Hop over the border into Senegal
As if The Gambia alone wasn’t enough, a tailormade holiday also gives you the opportunity to visit the neighbouring country of Senegal.
French-speaking and something of a hidden gem amongst British tourists, Senegal hides some wonderful wildlife, plenty of uncrowded beaches and a friendly, welcoming culture. The Gambia Experience have a handful of accommodation options there, of which Fathala Wildlife Reserve is by far the most popular. This luxury safari lodge is set within 2,000 hectares of national reserve, lying just a short ferry journey and road transfer away from Banjul.
Get a taste of everything
Do you want to spend time on the beach, while also discovering the wildlife and culture around you? Or maybe you’ve set a budget, but fancy a couple of nights of pure luxury. The beauty of a tailormade holiday is that you don’t have to choose.
Having spent plenty of time there themselves, The Gambia Experience team’s invaluable knowledge of The Gambia and Senegal means that they’re well equipped to help you experience the best these countries have to offer.
