Gambia Holidays - Perfect mix of African culture and western hospitality
Gambia protrudes magnificently out of Africa, straddling the West African coastline and the River Gambia. The setting is majestic as this narrow country stretches along the great river and is officially the smallest African nation. North Senegal above and South Senegal below make Gambia appear trapped on atlas, however the country still boasts an area exceeding 6,000 square miles, plenty of room for some outstanding summer and winter sun holidays. Gambia holidays have a special appeal here because the country is relatively new to the area, and there are less tourists than in more common holiday destinations, making holidays in Gambia just a touch more special.
Last Minute Holidays in Gambia - Appealing to the package holiday market
Having been 'discovered' by the package tourist market, Gambia has been helped along by the bestselling book 'Roots' by Alex Hayley, which later became a television series, boosting people's knowledge and raising the profile of Gambia holidays into the media spotlight. The coastline near Gambia's capital Banjul is a 25 mile stretch of spectacular white sandy beaches, perfect forpackage holidays in Gambia. Most major UK airports have direct flights to Gambia's main airport, Yundum International in Banjul. Flights take between six and seven hours. Airlines such as Monarch provide flights to the Gambia from the UK.
All Inclusive Cheap Holidays in Gambia - Ideal winter sun destination
Gambia holidays provide the visitors with lovely climate, palm lined stretches of beach, gentle azure Atlantic waters and all this tropical splendour has led to a location known as 'the Smiling Coast'. The local people are all very friendly here and welcome tourists to their nature reserves, craft markets and superb hotels during their cheap holidays in Gambia, ensuring an experience not to be forgotten. The country shares a latitude with Barbados, close to the equator, which results in the thirty-degree heat, perfect for those sun worshippers that enjoy nothing more than soaking up the rays on their tropical holidays.
