1. Opt for a 4x4 vehicle for better grip and stability when accessing uneven and dirt roads.
2. Gambians drive on the right side; however, locals tend to drive wherever the road is in best condition, meaning that there may be overtaking on the left. Be prepared and cautious when on the roads.
3. There are almost no street or road lights in The Gambia, so drive with caution at night and make sure that all your vehicle’s lights are in working order. You should also ensure that your vehicle has a portable torch.
