Holidays for Gambia
Your All Inclusive Gambia is best spent discovering the different nature reserves in the area particularly the Abuko Nature Reserve safari that is one of Gambia’s oldest established reserves. While almost a third of the reserve area is covered by evergreen forest, you will realise during your All Inclusive Gambia that it is still faced with the challenge of people and cattle encroachment.
Established way back in 1916, your Gambia holidays destination was declared as a reserve site by the government in 1968 thanks to the efforts of wildlife officer Eddie Brewer who sounded the alarm. The WWF has also been very supportive especially in fencing in the Abuko nature reserve. Its strategic location makes Abuko a natural Gambia holidays destination. This is also the perfect place to watch crocodiles in their natural habitat, and the best place for bird watching. You are however advised to wear thick and strong boots and arm yourself with insect repellents.
