Visiting Gambia Tips

There several things you have to think about before you go on holiday. To make it easy we made a list with the most important things to remember.

Useful to bring along:

  • Good shoes/sandals
  • Torch, especially a head light can be very practical
  • A first aid kit
  • Medicines against dehydration, diarrhea, malaria, etc
  • Protection against the sun (eg. sun cream, hat, sun glasses)
  • Protection against mosquitoes, the rooms have netting
  • Sweat bands, especially from July till November
  • Comfortable and loose fitting clothing, some long sleeves for the night time
  • For the months December till March bring a light jacket/fleece for the evenings
  • Pens, exercise books etc for school kids
  • Old or second hand clothing to give away
  • Toys etc to give away


Before you leave:

  • Check your inoculations with your GP
  • Money, bring cash or traveller cheques (commission on changing these cheques might apply). The use of a credit card is very limited in Gambia. The use of a debit card is NOT possible; you can only use a VISA card in the ATM's. (nearest available in Serrekunda)
  • Ensure that your passport is still valid and if you need a visa for Gambia. UK and most EU nationals do not need a visa.
    Get travel insurance
