West Africa: a destination that does not often come to mind when considering a holiday, although it is capable of enthralling its visitors with its mysterious nature and exotic beauty. A perfect alternative to those seeking an adventure, a thrilling experience of discovery, a holiday filled with exciting new visuals that come alive as if jumping out from the silver screen of a documentary.
Enter the beating heart of West Africa by accessing its main artery; the Gambia river that stretches out 1,120 km into the mainland of the continent. This ‘road’ less travelled is an alluring journey into the depths of a place that has been underestimated in terms of touristic value. A place that has been the home of ancient tribes and civilisations so different in culture that it is almost seductive matter discovering them. A place full of myths and legends woven into its peculiar landscapes, and tales of monsters, creatures and spirits that have haunted generations of its inhabitants. Nowadays, travellers can conveniently cruise the rivers of West Africa, following the flow of waters to uncover a myriad of interesting sites.
Bird watching is highly recommended, while you will be able to explore various fishing villages of a different character than we are used to, wildlife beyond your wildest dreams and aquatic animals that you will be able to observe in their natural habitat: marine turtles, dolphins manatees and crocodiles. Strange vegetation and the mystical baobab trees, as well as a stop to the UNESCO world heritage site of Kunta Kinteh (a.k.a James) island. Do you dare discover it all?
