One of the only places on earth where you can play with giant tamed crocodiles
It’s mainland Africa’s smallest country – ‘the smiling coast of Africa’!
Where colourfully characteristic fishing villages meet long, lazy, lingering beaches. Where meandering explorations of pristine wetlands and diverse ecosystems meets a warm, vibrant culture and star-studded lodges. Many have described it as ‘paradise on earth’ and it’s all here for the pickings as TV and Radio personalities, Mariam ‘Dainty’ Njie and Arthur Ngwube play with tamed crocodiles and much, much more in The Gambia.
