About Gambia

The smallest country in Africa, surrounded entirely by Senegal. The Gambia has only 80km of coastline, but what an impressive stretch it is: towering palms, gold sandy beaches, quiet fishing villages and dotted with scenic lagoons. The Gambia is also home to nature reserves, over 500 different bird species, hippos, crocodiles and a number of historic slave trade stations worth seeing.
