Good general guide to the Gambia (the tourist parts)
on 8 April 2013
If you are planning to spend most of the time in the main tourist resorts in the North of the country, this is a perfectly adequate guide. The guide is really good for tourists who will spent most of their time either at their hotel's pool or the beach, and perhaps just planning to visit one or two of the country’s main tourist attractions. We stayed in the South, less touristy region and this part of the country is not covered by the guide at all. Don’t expect the level of country insights that you would normally get with Rough Guide or Lonely Planet guides. The one advantage this guide book has over the others is that it is relatively up to date – 2011 edition. Rough Guide to The Gambia was last updated in 2006 and Lonely Planet - The Gambia and Senegal in 2009.
