Located on Africa’s historic western coast, Gambia is definitely the adventurer’s destination. It is relatively new to the tourism industry and offers the active traveller many enticing destinations on the road less travelled.
To experience Gambia call Designer Active Holidays.
Here, you can get up close with crocodiles and monkeys in the Abuko National Reserve, or spend time in one of the tropical resorts that can be found along the relatively unknown white sand beaches, that rival anything in the Caribbean or Asia.
During your seaside holiday, you can go fishing, swim in a natural lagoon, or simply spend the day on the beach playing volleyball with the locals, who bring their families out on Sundays to enjoy the beach themselves. You can also use it as a base camp to hike or cycle the local area. After an exciting day exploring, you can rest and relax in a gently swinging hammock to regain your strength for the next day’s adventure.
Make the most of the inside knowledge of local guides and organise an excursion to ride camels in Tanji or go dolphin spotting on Jinack Island. You can even get a taste of Gambia’s culture and cuisine in one of the authentic local restaurants or nightclubs recommended by your native hosts.
MAKASUTU CULTURE FOREST
One of the most popular destinations in Gambia is Makasutu Culture Forest. The award-winning accommodation within the forest was designed to fit in with the local environment, nestling lodges within existing tree gaps and employing local people in construction and as tour guides.
Be sure to consult with us about the weather when planning your holiday. Gambia experiences a rainy season from June to October, when monsoon rains are a daily occurrence. Most tourists prefer to visit Gambia during the cooler, dry season.
