Whilst many of our customers are looking for an escape from the British winter and choose not to stray too far from the beach and their hotel, this region of West Africa has a lot to offer and those that venture a little further afield experience more of the true personality of the countries and their people. Twin and multi-centre holidays are becoming increasingly popular within The Gambia and the small distances involved add to the appeal.

“On one of my recent trips to The Gambia I decided to follow the growing trend for multi-centre holidays (it’s so easy to do in a small country) and stayed in four different hotels. This has encouraged me to find some more quality lodges and individual properties to twin with a beach hotel – although they can also be enjoyed for a longer stay – which you’ll find in our exciting, new Unique Collection. I also talked to as many customers as possible. It was fantastic to hear comments such as “our rule is we never go back to the same destination twice – but this is our third visit”.
Virtually any combination of hotels is possible and our team will be happy to put together itineraries, quotes and share their first-hand knowledge of the properties.
