The Gambia Experience (5-star AITO) is the market leader of the tour operators to Gambia whose parent company is Serenity Holidays Ltd. Serenity was established in 1984 and was bought in 1987 by an Isle of Man accountant Stephen Wilde and his wife Sandra, who launched Gambia Experience in the same year. They started by offering a few seats a week. Today, they have more flights from Britain and more hotels offered than by any other tour operator; its resort staff is the largest and most knowledgeable and its commitment to the country is unsurpassed. In 2008 they celebrated 20 years of travelling to The Gambia.

Over the past 20 years the owners, Stephen & Sandra Wilde, along with their staff, have developed a large knowledge of The Gambia, building relationships with hoteliers and can now offer many properties or room types exclusively. They have a permanent team in The Gambia and UK based staff regularly visit the country. Some members of staff have worked for the company for over 18 years.

After the bloodless coup of 1994 all the other tour operators evacuated their tourist clients out of the country and cancelled their hotel contracts . Only The Gambia Experience remained operating a once weekly flight from the UK. Also after the September 11th attack in New York when all the operators except Thomson reduced losses by cutting back their programmes, the company increased their capacity and introduced 1 more flight from Bristol Airport.
