Tourism

This small country in western Africa has become more popular recently as a beach destination for European travelers. It’s a relatively short flight, there’s no time difference, and lodging is generally very affordable. River Island National Park in Banjul is fantastic for watching wildlife (especially the native baboons)

Eco Tourism

Many Eco Lodges and Tourism sites are being developed in The Gambia.

Bijilo Forest Park

A small reserve on the edge of the beach within easy walking distance of the Senegambia area. The park offers a haven for Birds and Monkeys. Ideal for an early morning walk.
