Smiling Coast
The smallest country of mainland Africa, the Gambia consists of the Gambia River valley and the hills that run along its edges. Taking off on a journey down the river during your vacation in Gambia allows you to discover a landscape known worldwide as a bird-watcher's paradise--you might want to keep your binoculars and camera handy at all times. The Atlantic coast boats a number of beach resorts with large hotels and shining sands, while the fishing villages farther inland offer an altogether more rustic and basic take on Gambian charm.
