Posted on: 30 April 2008 by Gareth Hargreaves

Holidays with a difference on The Smiling Coast of Africa.

For fantastic weather, deserted beaches, fascinating culture and some of the friendliest people on earth, make your next holiday a trip to The Gambia. Situated on the beautiful West African coast, it’s just a six-hour flight from London and in the same time zone, so no jet lag!

Providing visitors with a taste of unspoilt Africa, The Gambia has much to offer all year round from basking in the sunshine to fully guided bush trips and river excursions, or observing the amazing bird life of more than 540 species of birds. Its unexploited waters provide fantastic fishing opportunities attracting visitors worldwide and its vibrant culture together with an unhurried pace of life give visitors an unforgettable insight to a truly exciting destination.

For those seeking an alternative to the resorts of Europe, The Gambia makes an excellent choice, offering value for money and competitive prices, especially in the summer.
