Family holidays to Gambia

If you're thinking of taking a family holiday with the kids, there's no better destination than the country known as the ‘Smiling Coast of Africa'. Gambia family holidays have everything you could want, including a warm climate, friendly locals and a diverse range of landscapes waiting to be explored. You could be relaxing on a white sand beach in the morning and taking a boat trip through mangrove swamps by lunch time.

There's so much to see and do in The Gambia that some sort of plan will come in handy, especially if you don't want to miss anything during your stay. View giraffes, monkeys, warthogs and rhinos in the Fathala Game Reserve, which resides just beyond the Gambia River. If your kids are the adventurous type, take them to Makasutu for a canoe journey around the beautiful ecological nature reserve. Head to Bakau in the north-west of The Gambia for its crocodile pools and elegant botanical gardens. Shop for souvenirs and bring home a traditional African drum or a colourful kaleidoscope for the kids.

Let your worries float away with a relaxing afternoon on the soft sandy shored of Kotu Beach. Enjoy a refreshing drink while the kids play in the sand and afterwards, indulge in some local cuisine in a nearby restaurant. Soak up some unique history with a boat ride to Fort James Island. Here, you'll learn about the island's history as a former colonial fort that was once used as a slave trading route. Whether you're looking for an All Inclusive trip or a Self Catering apartment for your stay, book your Gambia family holiday with us for a trip you and your kids will never forget.
