Out and About

There are many things to do in Gambia. You will meet the local people, wander to the beach through the neighbouring village, passing the friendly shop keepers, traders and local police station.

You will meet children shouting the inevitable “Tou-Bab, give me minty!”, which translated means “please can I have a sweet?”.

You can visit the local shops and markets and meet local families. No doubt you will be asked to join them for lunch and squat around the communal eating bowl and delve into locally cooked food, sharing with 10 others sitting with you.

Or you can just chat with the staff by the pool learning about their background, their culture and their family life.

With our helpful staff, you can arrange a day at the beach with a specially prepared picnic meal, cool drinks and some drumming and dancing entertainment. Play football with children and swim in the warm Atlantic sea.

Why not visit the local school and sit in on some classes, help out or just experience a whole new way of life. There are all sorts of activities at the local school which can be fascinating.

And if packing your week with local experiences from the surrounding community is not enough for you, why not arrange any number of tourist activities in the Gambia:
