Gambia

The Gambia is also called “The Smiling Coast of Africa”. Its beautiful coastline and temperate weather attracts travellers from all corners of the globe.

Gambia is biologically diverse and is home to many national parks with a wide variety of species.

The country was once heavily involved in the slave trade. As a result, there are many monuments and museums that serve to educate travellers about the trade.
