Gambia Winter Sun


A week's holiday on a paradise beach with your choice of activities at your own pace.

Activity code: GAWS01

Duration: 8 Days

Enjoy the "the Smiling Coast of Africa" on a sunshine holiday away from the tourist crowds. A choice of things to do and places to visit can be included and you will return with fascinating stories of encounters with wildlife and Gambia's vibrant culture.

This short holiday to Africa's smallest country offers you a relaxing time staying in delightful lodge camp and on a palm-fringed beach. We're sure that you'll love this spot as much as us, it really is idyllic.

Basing your stay at the pristine sands of Boboi Beach Lodge, an ideal place to relax whilst you become acclimatised to the Gambian weather; it is a small, family-run accommodation and you are quite likely to have the lodge and beach to yoursleves.

A short walk along the beach after sunset will offer the opportunity to experience the stunning night sky completely free of both light and industrial pollution, continue along a while and you may also get to see the mysterious ghost crabs or, if you are lucky, a turtle.

Even without going inland you can experience Gambian wildlife and the culture of this country which is dominated by its rivers. The nearby Allahein river actually marks out the southern border with Senegal (in fact, all borders are with Senegal). You may choose an early morning excursion by canoe to encounter a variety of birds (sea eagle, ospreys) as well as admiring the thick mangroves; in this area oysters grow on the mangrove stalks and the local women often spend all day wading in the water to harvest the oysters. Nearby Kartong beach is a working fishing area so there are always boats coming in with their fresh catch.

You can also visit the Gambia Reptile Sanctuary to meet some of the animals you may prefer to avoid in the wild.
