Despite it being the smallest country in Africa, Gambia will keep you coming back for more, even when you've done it all! Book your holiday rental in Gambia today so you can start your adventure!
Located in West Africa, Gambia is completely surrounded by Senegal, except for its coastline. Gambia takes its name from the Gambia river, which in the Mandinka term is Kambra/Kambaa.
With plenty of wildlife, Gambia is a haven for animal lovers. There are nearly 600 bird species, alongside various other animals. Gambia certainly lives up to its motto of "the smiling coast of Africa" with its friendly locals.
What to Do
Visit the capital, Banjul, where you'll be able to climb Arch 22 and witness breathtaking views of the city. Make sure to stop by the National Museum, too. There's also the village of Bakau where you can actually meet some crocodiles at the Katchikali Crocodile Pool.

New holiday villa, Gambia. AC's, 2 bathrooms, modern kitchen, very secured
Very Good Accommodation - Highly recomended
I enjoyed a very pleasant stay last november in this seemingly recently built bungalow. The house was really neat & tidy and Isatou proved to be a very friendly and unintrusive hostess. All the basic appliances where there and fully functioning, including a TV and 2 AC units (the latter turned out to be very comforting during daytime!). The garden seemed to be tended to regurarly as well.
The bungalow is situated within a gated community wich is guarded 24/7. The community lays in a quiet and peaceful neighbourhood which i found was a welcome change from the touristic areas. A small shop is situated on-site for all basic essentials, and both Senegambia and Serrekunda are only 10 minutes away by car/taxi.
All in all i could highly recommend this bungalow for anyone who wants to have an accomodation which is up to western standards and comes at a very good price. …
Leander House - Self Catering - Senegambia
Fantastic villa. Close to beaches and facilities. Relaxing environment.
Leander house is a great place to relax, enjoy the Gambia sunshine and cool off in the beautiful pool. The house is big enough to accommodate a large family and is on one level which makes life easier with children. Location is great and the beaches, hotels, bars and restaurants are only a short (dusty) walk away. The villa is clean and well equipped and this makes for a very comfortable stay. Local transport can be arranged by the owners which makes getting about stress-free. …

Great location, close to the buzz of Gambia but tucked quietly away to provide a peaceful haven from it all. Warm, gentle welcome upon arrival.

I have plans on returning in the future. Thanks very much for having me and keeping me safe! Oh yeah, the compound is very safe and secure at all times. …
MANGO VILLAGE BIJILO
Great value for money
A little way off the main highway this small friendly guesthouse was great value for the money. The very helpful staff are led by a manager for whom nothing is too much trouble he even transports guests, who require it, to the main road in his own car at no cost to the guests. The rooms are set in lovely grounds with a clean swimming pool. There are fishing ponds filled with fish that guests can enjoy a little light easy fishing. All members of staff were friendly and helpful and went above and beyond their duties to make guests feel at home.
overall this was a truly wonderful place to stay thankyou Pa and all staff …
# 6 Senegambia area,in Kerr Serign.one bedroom
A unique apartment block in an ideal location
Staff very friendly. Cleanliness excellent. Exceptionally spacious apartment. Only crtiticism would be a shortage of kitchen utensils, eg no tin opener, corkscrew or drinking glasses [ I am not a Moslem & like my tipple!] The close proximity to the main highway was a great asset & the Senegambia Strip being in walking distance. …

The log cabin - 'Kaira Bungo'
Perfect setting, very good amenities, wonderful people
We were impressed with the house itself, its very quiet location in a beautiful sub tropical garden and the comfortable interior with a great bed, shower room and dining room/kitchen with cooking facilities and a fridge. Very close by is an eco-lodge with wi-fi, a bar and restaurant and arranged guided trips. We swam in the ocean most days - it is a pleasant 25 minute walk and even quicker by bike (the property has two bikes). We ate a few times at the local fishing villages which are incredibly picturesque - on bike along the beach it takes about 30 minutes to either village - North or South. The house is far from the tourist spots of Gambia with their noise and hassle and the local people are extremely friendly without being intrusive. Very highly recommended. …
