Kiang West National ParkThough it is a small country there are numerous things to do in Gambia if you know what to look for. There are dozens of places to eat, some of which are tucked away in residential areas and thus are not always very easy to find.

There are several nightclubs in an around the main holiday resorts and the beaches offer plenty of opportunity to find a quiet corner somewhere to sunbath is relative peace. Sanyang BeachSanyang beach, which is about 27km for the main hotel resorts, is a must-see and visit beach. Famous for its relatively unspoilt golden beaches and is relatively deserted during the week if you move away from the few beach bars located there.

Banjul's Albert MarketIn Banjul there is the National Museum, the July 22nd Arch. Pop over to Barra on the other side of the river or shop at the Albert Market which is crammed full of exotic and imported goods.

Some of the excursions you cannot miss are to Abuko Nature Reserve where you can spot hyenas, 550 bird species, vultures lions & other wildlife. The other wildlife reserve worth visiting is Makasutu Culture Forest.

You can take a ride on a microlight & view the Gambia from above, visit the sacred Kachikally Crocodile Pool where it is said you can stroke the animals as they are said to be tame or take a camel ride at Tanji.
