The Gambia is the smallest African nation, surrounded by Senegal and enjoys a small strip of the Atlantic coast. The Gambia boasts of a diverse ecosystem that includes its short coastline lined with sandy beaches, lush rainforests, mangrove swamps and wetlands, which are home to abundant wildlife. The country is also blessed with a rich culture, and while you are here, there’s no escaping the sounds of lively traditional music and dancing to its beats.

Capital Banjul is a major cultural hub and the heart of the nation, known for its British era landmarks. The Arch 22 near the city’s main entrance is an important monument and you will have amazing views of the city from its top. Other attractions include its bustling harbour, the open-air Albert Market and the National Museum.

The Gambia’s 80 km long Atlantic coast houses numerous beaches and resort towns like Bakau, Fajara and Kotu. Gambia’s beaches are largely unspoiled and their pristine charm brings in visitors to bask on their sandy shores. You can experience ecotourism at its best in the Makasutu Culture Forest, an area spanning over 1000 kilometres and made up of wetlands, mangroves and savannah plains, packed with animal and bird species. Along with exploring the local environment, you will also witness amazing traditional music and dance performances here.

Another popular activity in The Gambia is birdwatching and it is best experienced in the Tanbi Wetlands and the Abuko National Park, where you will find hundreds of endemic, exotic and migrant bird species. The Abuko National Park is also famous for its Nile crocodiles, monkey species and reptiles species. Taking a journey along the Gambia river and spotting wildlife such as pelicans, hippos and monkeys are another popular way to witness the country’s natural wealth.

The Gambia is also known for its historical villages and Albreda is a great example of that. This tiny village was once known as a trading or slave fort and there is a small museum here that contains exhibits narrating the horrific history of slave trading.

Sure, The Gambia is quite small in size but you will be surprised at the number of experiences that it offers. With its rich culture, diverse terrain and abundant wildlife, The Gambia has everything you would expect from an African destination.

Taking a journey along the Gambia river is a great way to witness The Gambia’s natural wealth.
