The Gambia's the kind of place where it's fun to just relax by the pool and do nothing. But it's even more fun to get out and about, having adventures! This book helped me do exactly that.

Without the Rough Guide, I would have missed out on so much. I chose my hotel on the basis of a review in the book, and loved the place. And in just a week I took boat trips along amazing mangrove creeks, visited crazy markets, and met really friendly villagers. The book tells it how it is, so you're not left wondering which trip/lodge/restaurant to choose. It's also really good on background info. I'd definitely recommend it.

Although this rough guide to the Gambia was not the most recent travel guide about The Gambia, it was still shockingly accurate and complete! We visited The Gambia in Octobre 2009, backpacked around the country only by gheleh gheleh, slept and ate in small restaurants and little guesthouses. Most of the guides of this size are Senegal and Gambia books, while this one only goes in detail about the Gambia. It was an enormous source of information, on country, culture, tradition, places to go and to stay, things of interest...
We've been travelling around all over the world on Rough Guides but we've never had one more complete and accurate than this one! It's absolute superb!

Format: Paperback
I recently went to The Gambia and took this book along for travel advice. Overall it was ok. The information about culture, religion, money etc. was useful, however the map was completely inaccurate as were the restaurant reviews.

The map was also rather difficult to navigate due to none of the items being listed consecutively, and therefore you had to fish around to find what you were looking for. Also the reviews for restaurants led me to believe that the writer(s) had not visited these places for a meal, nor so much as reviewed the menus as the pricing and descriptions were a little off.

If you are intending on visiting this beautiful country, my advice would be to research places to eat on the internet before going.

Bought this prior to a Gambian holiday and carried it everywhere. Found it really useful finding hotels, restaurants etc. medical information and weather we could expect.
