Gambia Facts and Country Information...

Situated in West Africa with Banjul as its capital, Gambia is the smallest African inland country. Its border touches Senegal and the coastal area looks over the Atlantic Ocean. The Gambian population speaks English as an official language, although the local languages such as Fula and Jola, amongst others are widely spoken.

Although Gambia is a mere strip of land it offers a diversified landscape, with lush tropical forests, swamps, marshes, wooded savannah and sandy beaches, the River Gambia running right through the country. Gambia is also a paradise for birdwatchers with over 540 different species to spot. The national parks and reserves are a major asset, attracting an ecotourism to its pristine landscapes.

The beaches along the Atlantic Coast offer some of the best in Africa, fringed with palm trees and scattered with seashells, with a fromation of some superb sand cliffs in the area where the river flows into the Atlantic.

Some sites of interests are Albreda/Jufureh, twin villages that offer an insight of Gambian colonial history with the Exhibition of the Slave Trade, or the standing stones of Wassu, a series of fascinating stones standing in a circle, that are thought to mark a perhistoric burial ground, although they are still veiled by mystery.

Gambia offers the best climate in Africa, with subtropical temperatures, with a dry season from November to June and a rainy season from June to October.

The people from Gambia are called Gambians.
