First Sentence
It's no surprise that The Gambia and Senegal are cohesive countries in many respects, or that the term Senegambia is often used when the region is discussed as a whole. Read the first page

2.0 out of 5 stars Guesswork, maps were Okay. 15 Dec 2005
I gave up as soon the Authours suggested that the Phrase "going to Timbuctu" was in use in the 13 century in the U.K. ! as the City was founded in the 9th & was a Trading Place by then. They had no evidense just guess work. (Just because you think it sounds good doesn't make it True, my guess would be after 1860)
I just assumed from then on the rest of the book was Guesswork.
I was staying in a resort & did not need any information from the book but after a mistake like that I would have double checked every detail.
I won't buy anyother Lonely Planet book if there is another Option. I paid £13 for Guesswork. I'm not even sure they have been to Gambia.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent: condensed, useful, and great reading 22 Sep 2002
By Maurizio Giuliano - Published on
In many cases, the coverage offered by Lonely Planet guidebooks may be hampered by the magnitude of the region they try and cover. This is why for example, in "Lonely Planet West Africa" (a bulky book which also covers Senegal and the Gambia), coverage of each single country is brief and not always perfect, and the reader is often lost among facts and information she or he does not need. Instead, in this much smaller and far more condensed guidebook, the author and editors have managed to put as much information and data as possible into it, about Senegal and the tiny Gambia. Coverage of both countries is excellent, providing up-to-date, accurate information and sensible advice, on anything from places to stay and eat, things to do and see, things to buy, and basically anything the traveller may wish to know. The coverage on culture, society, arts, music, and other information, is also excellent and wide, written in great prose and style. This is probably one of the best Lonely Planet guidebooks I have come across, and I would strongly recommend it to anyone travelling to those two countries. It will be an extremely useful tool, and will also provide great reading about the places being visited.

Wonderful overview of these two west African countries. I am novice traveler to this continent and very much geographically challenged. Book referenced several other interesting books to read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Senegal and Gambia 15 July 2006
By Firecracker - Published on
I had to do a project on Senegal. And this book helped me a lot, even though I'd like most of the information to be on Senegal instead of Gambia. The book will really help you if you are a traveller going to one of the countries. The part about pickpockets was very interesting as it tells me about the best way to be robbed in Senegal. Overall, this book covers everything, from local slangs to foods eaten. It deserves a four star!
