Sustainable Tourism

We, at The Gambia Experience, have always been aware of the impact of tourism on the immediate and worldwide environment, which is why we’ve always strived to be a ‘green’ company. We continually endeavor to negate any detrimental impacts our business has on our destinations whilst sustaining long term environmental and social benefits.

We commit wherever possible to:

  • protect the environment - its flora, fauna and landscapes
  • respect local cultures - traditions, religions and built heritage
  • benefit local communities - both economically and socially
  • conserve natural resources - from office to destination
  • minimise pollution - through noise, waste disposal and congestion

Please take time to read our comprehensive Sustainable Tourism section of our website. Here, you can learn more about our Sustainable Tourism Policy, how best to act in our destinations, our carbon offset schemes and our involvement with charities.
