GAMBIA


GAMBIA



Apart from the country’s natural and historical highlights, the people of The Gambia are known for their hospitality and friendliness as well as their vibrant and colourful culture. The country takes its name from the Gambia River, which bisects the country’s entire length as it flows on its way to the ocean. The Gambia was granted independence from Great Britain in 1965 and has since become Africa’s alluring Atlantic coastline with golden sandy beaches, luxurious, stunning nature reserves and important historical sites.

Visit the bustling markets of Banjul and Serekunda, rich in colour and activity, and witness a traditional wrestling match or chance upon a local wedding, baptism or impromptu public concert to experience the rhythms of the Kora and traditional Gambian music.
