Welcome to The Gambia, a small country located in western Africa that is known for its beautiful beaches, friendly people and bustling markets. Here’s a Lonely Planet style visitor guide to help you plan your trip.

Getting There & Around:
The easiest way to get to The Gambia is by flying into Banjul International Airport, which is serviced by major airlines including Brussels Airlines and Air France. Once you arrive, the best way to get around is by shared taxis or mini-buses, which are cheap and plentiful.

Things to do:
1. Visit the Kachikally Crocodile Pool – This sacred pool is believed to have healing powers and is home to dozens of crocodiles that roam freely. Don’t worry, they are said to be friendly!

2. Explore the River Gambia – Take a boat tour down the river to see local fishing villages and spot wildlife, including hippos and monkeys.

3. Visit Tanji Fishing Village – This bustling market town is known for its fish market, where you can see fishermen unloading their catch of the day.

4. Go birdwatching – The Gambia is a haven for birdwatchers, with over 500 species of birds in the area. Head to Abuko Nature Reserve or Kotu Creek to spot them.

5. Relax on the beach – The Gambia has some of the most beautiful beaches in West Africa, including Kololi Beach and Cape Point Beach.

Where to Eat:
The Gambia has a great culinary scene, with plenty of local dishes to try. Some must-tries include Benechin (a rice and fish dish), Domoda (a peanut butter stew) and Yassa (a spicy chicken dish).

Where to Stay:
The Gambia has a range of accommodation options to suit all budgets, from luxury resorts to budget-friendly guesthouses. Some popular options include Kairaba Beach Hotel, Coco Ocean Resort & Spa, and Bamboo Garden Hotel.

When to Go:
The best time to visit The Gambia is between November and February, when the weather is dry and cool. Avoid visiting during the rainy season (June to October), when heavy rains can cause flooding and make road travel difficult.

Finally, it’s worth noting that The Gambia is a relatively safe country for tourists, but it’s always important to be vigilant and take common-sense precautions like avoiding deserted beaches at night. With all that said, enjoy your trip to The Gambia!
