The Gambia holidays by Cox & Kings

The smallest country in Africa, measuring a mere 500km in length and 50km wide, The Gambia was granted independence from Great Britain in 1965 and is surrounded by its much larger neighbour Senegal.

The country takes its name from the Gambia river, which bisects the country’s entire length as it flows on its way to the ocean. Known for its alluring Atlantic coastline with golden sandy beaches, luxurious beach resorts and bustling fishing villages, the country also boasts a number of stunning nature reserves and important historical sites.
