Accommodation places open during green season

The Gambia is a place where summer never ends. It is an all-year-round destination located within comfortable flying distance from major European destinations and capitals in Europe.

It is the kind of holiday destination suitable for every type of vacation, whether it is a summer vacation for the entire family, an adventurous trip for students and young people, long winter holidays for retirees, or a romantic getaway for honeymooners or an educational & volunteering group experience.

There are fewer tourists in The Gambia between April and October, and some accommodation places close their doors until October or November. But this is certainly not the case for all the places.

So-called off-season, also known as green, low, wet, rainy or mango season, affects many businesses and individuals every year. Covid and other political issues have added a large part to it.

But the Covid era also brought some positive changes to the industry. Domestic tourism has been helping so many businesses to survive during the most challenging times for the tourism industry. And there is an increased number of visitors from other African countries such as Senegal, Nigeria, Ghana, Sierra Leone, and others. Therefore, many places have realised that the market is also available during the green season. Special deals, discounted prices, and affordable packages attract many Gambians, ex-pats and others to enjoy holidays in The Gambia - whether only for the weekend or extended period.

Business tourism is also a lucrative, fast-growing segment with enormous potential in The Gambia. It is expected to be one of the hottest growth markets for travel industry providers in the years ahead. We believe that developing and transition economies are interested in expanding revenues from business tourism and need to focus on the individual business traveller and the meetings and conventions market.

So, we invite you to The Gambia all year round.
