The Gambia – English-speaking, relaxed and hospitable – is Europe’s closest tropical destination and Africa’s smallest nation, lying along the mangrove- and jungle-tangled banks of the Gambia river, and stretching from a short coastline of sandy beaches into the heart of West African sahel. This new Rough Guide gives you the full picture at every level, delivered by authors whose love, knowledge and experience of Africa go back two decades. Package-holiday visitors have every question answered, while the guide suggests a wide range of activities – and all the ways and means – for independent travel.
