Bradt Travelguide, utgiven 2018. Engelsk text.
With 16 well-researched chapters and 26 useful maps, this new thoroughly updated second edition of Bradt's The Gambia remains the most comprehensive guide available in any language to what is the smallest country on mainland Africa.
Significant development has taken place in recent years and this new edition offers all the latest updates, including new restaurants and hotels, detailed coverage of the many new eco lodges and camps that have sprung up, information on festivals, music workshops and opportunities to experience the unique local culture, and informed advice about birdwatching possibilities in a country very popular with first-time birders to Africa.
As well as encompassing the popular coastal resorts, the guide also provides all the detailed information required to explore the relatively undeveloped interior, making it ideal for both visitors on organised packaged holidays and independent travellers alike.
Bradt's The Gambia reveals all the background and practical information needed to explore arguably Africa's most welcoming country with its plethora of beach resorts catering to all tastes and budgets that line the 80km stretch of tropical coastline running from the capital Banjul to the remote southern border.
All in all, Bradt's The Gambia is the perfect companion for discovering this welcoming and decidedly tourist-friendly English-speaking country which makes for an ideal short-stay introduction to the unique atmosphere of Africa.
