This past year I have traveled to The Gambia 3 times. I have loved the country and that is why we have made a website to explain how to travel to the country on your own. TO YOUR AIR.
There are a lot of people who require this free travel alternative. And it is entirely true that the testimonies of those of us who have tried it and we are not few are of enormous satisfaction.
The country is safe and charming. They call it The Smile of Africa. Many things are read on the forums about what Gambians come to overwhelm but it is that there are many people who travel to Gambia and do not leave the kilometers of beach in the tourist area. And that is not the real Gambia. The real Gambia is outside the resort zone.
The flights are quite cheap and a free stay does not have to cost you a lot of euros either.
Have a good trip (if you decide to go)
