Gambia in West Africa is a former British colony so most of the population are English speaking. The Gambian River runs the length of the country, 480 kilometres from east to west out into the Atlantic Ocean. A river cruise is the perfect way of experiencing the surrounding countryside at a leisurely pace.
On the Gambian River you’ll pass by tropical forests, bamboo groves, rice paddies, mangrove swamps and river side villages. You may also have the chance to see hippos, Nile crocodiles, monkeys and a variety of different birds.
