This is not a traditional backpacking trip; you will experience Africa in a profound way.

Gambia is the smallest country in Africa and the best choice for travelers who want to venture into the heart of West Africa. It is a country with very few tourists and a very friendly and hospitable population.

We will delve into Gambia’s main and most important local markets.

Although it has only 80 kilometers of coastline, they are magnificent: golden beaches protected by palm trees and dotted with spectacular lagoons, peaceful fishing villages, and coastal reserves with rich flora and fauna.

Gambia boasts a diverse wildlife, with over 600 species of birds, manatees, hippos, crocodiles, and groups of clever colobus monkeys. It has some marvels, from a chimpanzee reserve on an island to the ruins of a 17th-century British fortress. But the greatest treasure is its warm population, living up to the nickname of the “smiling coast of Africa.”
