The Gambia


Book Description

Small in size but rich in African character, The Gambia and its resort-dotted coastline offer perhaps the closest English-speaking ‘winter sun’ destination from Europe. The interior, dominated by the lush jungle-fringed Gambia River, is home to plentiful birds and monkeys, time-warped traditional villages and mysterious megalithic sites. Bradt’s The Gambia reveals all the background and practical information needed to explore arguably Africa’s most welcoming and safest country, alongside detailed coverage of the many new eco-lodges and informed advice on the country’s bird watching possibilities.
