Exploring The Gambia

Gambian Escape

Your Itinerary

DAY 1 - Welcome to The Gambia

Arrive in the afternoon at Banjul Airport where our local representative will meet you and show you to your shared transfer vehicle. Choose where to stay from the following hotels; each has something different to offer.

And remember, if you can’t decide, you can always split your holiday between more than one hotel!

Day 2 to 7 - Markets, wildlife and beaches

Spend your days relaxing by the pool or in your hotel garden, or, better still, go out and explore the markets, beaches and forests of The Gambia. See wildlife including monkeys, crocodiles and a magnificent variety of birds, visit a traditional fishing village or try your hand at cooking West African style. You’ll find a full list of organised excursions here or hire a driver and guide if you prefer to explore independently.


Both residents at Coco Ocean and guests from our other hotels may book a treatment at the luxurious Coco Ocean Spa with its Moroccan Hammam, steam room, sauna and thalassotherapy pool for the ultimate pampering experience. Our guests receive a 15% discount on all full-priced individual treatments, so don’t miss out!

Day 8 - Farewell to The Gambia

After a leisurely breakfast, you’ll have time for a walk on the beach or some last minute shopping. Your mid-morning pick up will take you back to the airport to check-in for your flight home.
