The Gambia is well known as one of the smallest countries on the African continent. Surrounded by Senegal, this beautiful country resembles a majestic strip of land in which the Gambian River flows on each side into the Atlantic Ocean.
Given the nickname, the smiling coast of Africa, its principle attributes are its pristine sandy beaches and opportunities for watching various species of birds.
This predominately English-speaking country has over five hundred and fifty species of birds for avian enthusiasts, breathtaking and captivating Eco-Tourism and three UNESCO heritage sites. Take time to visit if you can, the Abuko Nature Reserve, the River Gambia National Park and Kiang West National Park.
