The Gambia Experience is delighted to announce a win at the 2016 British Travel Awards!

After receiving the fantastic news that we’d been nominated for an award back in the summer, we’ve been counting down the days to find out the results, which were announced last night (23 November) at Battersea Evolution, London.

We’re delighted to share that The Gambia Experience received Gold for ‘Best Holiday Company to Sub-Saharan Africa’ and we couldn’t be more thrilled.



Maxine and I (from the marketing team) attended the Carnival themed event, and were met by a colourful champagne reception and some dancing entertainment before the dining hall was revealed and dinner was served. A star-studded ceiling overlooked close to 100 tables, and a stage at the front was ready and waiting for the presenters to start the ceremony.


As the evening unfolded we enjoyed good food and company, and were elated when we saw ‘The Gambia Experience’ pop up on the large television screens as having won gold in our category.

Overall it was a fantastic night, and we want to extend a huge thank you to everyone who voted for us, our (rather heavy) trophy will take pride of place in the office, and who knows, maybe we can add another next year?
