Going to Gambia Now is the best thing you will ever do!

Gambia just made history. 22 years under one leader (YahyaJammeh) and the citizens late last year voted for change. It took a little effort, but the transition of power has now happened peacefully with the help of dialogue with other West African Countries and without bloodshed. Gambia has a new President in Admah Barrow.

History has been made, and this is an example to follow. 

For the full story, check out BBC and their related postes.
Aljazeera reports "Gambians ready to rebuild their country "from scratch".
And the article by Louise Hunt “Bye byeJammeh: Hope and challenges in The Gambia” is also a good read. 

Make The Gambia a part of your dream too !

On the ground, the smiling coast of Africa, is really all smiles.

 It could not be a better time to visit Gambia. There is a sense of energy, partly driven by the need of restructuring the country into a modern thriving economy, where tourism of course will play a vital role.

There are a few months left in this season too, and its terribly important to the stakeholders in tourism. Tourism is quite the main source of income, and a unrecovered industry will mean a ten month hiatus before the season starts again.

 Everything about your trip now will be fantastic. The welcomes, the smiles, the much needed income, witnessing a country rebuild itself, the much needed push into the economy. How better can it be.

At Ethical Travel Portal, we will be doing out share to support tourism in this country, the second home to one of our founders. For the next couple of weeks, we will tempt you with "A photo a day from the Smiling Coast of West Africa" on our Facebook page!
