MY TRIP TO THE GAMBIA

Hi Guys,

Sorry I'm late with Sunday's post but it's technically still Sunday in some parts of the world right? Lol. If you follow me on Instagram you'll know I just got back from The Gambia. I'd planned so many trips there over the years but somehow the plans always fell through, so when I was sent there on a work assignment I was beyond excited.  I was sent there to cover the opening of a brand new resort called Flourish Wellness Resort, Kotu Beach. I was in Gambia for 4 days and had an amazing time relaxing on the beach, resting, treating myself to some good food and spa treatments - it was exactly what I needed. The Gambia is stunning and it's only 3 and a half hours away from Lagos. I stayed at the Kairaba hotel which was lovely but had a bit too many animals roaming around for my liking - peacocks, cats, monkeys, all sorts of birds, high monitor lizards *eek*. The pace of the country is very relaxed and the people are incredibly friendly, if you're looking for a break from the hustle and bustle of Nigeria I'd totally recommend a trip to The Gambia.

I've always wanted to travel more within Africa and my trips to Ghana and Gambia this year have really opened my eyes to the beauty we have right here on our continent. I can't wait to see more! Have you ever been to The Gambia? What other African countries would you recommend I visit?

NB - I apologise for the picture quality, I didn't take my DSLR with me so all these pictures were taken on my Iphone 5. Not bad though right? Lol..

  1. I visited The Gambia early this year and stayed at the Coco Ocean Resort & Spa. Didn't get to see much of the city, but the resort and beach were amazing. The people are very friendly and laid-back. It's definitely the smiling coast of Africa. Loved looking at these pictures, took me back :) x

  2. The pictures are nice, so no worries. I would like to visit sometime, but you've scared me with the random roaming animals!!!! I would totally freak out. That's the same reason why I refuse to visit Lekki Conservation Center.

    Glad you had fun.

  3. I was going to visit this year but some things cropped up. I hope to visit next year though. The pictures are okay but you should consider buying the Samsung Galaxy A5. Even your selfies are automatically photoshopped!
