And speaking of wildlife, the Gambia has six national parks and reserves, covering nearly 4% of the national land area, plus several forest parks.

The island city, and capital city of Banjul is a must stop. Albert Market in the city center is a major draw, as there one can purchase local crafts and fabrics, plus enjoy the local food and music.
