Hotels in the Gambia have been moving towards the luxury end of the market in recent years, focusing on five-star resorts and eco-lodges and away from cheap hostels and boarding houses. However, nearly all of these properties are consolidated along the Atlantic coastline.
Let’s be clear – most British travellers consider holidaying in The Gambia very affordable, with most of the three or four-star resorts available from as little as £30 a night. You can sometimes get an even cheaper deal if you book a holiday package. For example, a week-long break (inclusive of a four-star hotel, flights and breakfast) in December is often less than £500 per person.
If you’re a budget traveller, then it’s worth researching a visit to The Gambia in the off-season. From late June to October, the rainy season (known locally as ‘Nawet’) is when you can the best hotel deals, usually up to 50% cheaper. During this period, the climate is still warm, with temperatures hovering around 25C, but you do need to pack a raincoat and take insect repellent and Malaria prevention tablets with you.
