My Magazine is celebrating its 2nd anniversary! And we are happy to announce that My Gambia online booking platform is finally here!

We are independent travel explorers, creating a free online magazine with over 40 articles each month about The Gambia, its people, culture, happenings and places through vibrant colours and captivating videos. With our knowledge and passion for photography and videography, we offer you a virtual connection with The Gambia, guidance before and during your travel and constant assistance to ensure your stay in The Gambia is one of a kind.

We are celebrating 2 years since the first edition of My Magazine was published. This monthly online magazine presents everything that we love and support about the tourism industry in The Gambia – fantastic places to stay, small independent businesses, inspirational people, beautiful photography, different dining options, colourful villages, wildlife, and so much more.

In this edition, we are introducing our long-planned online reservation platform where every visitor of The Gambia will find information about accommodation places, trips and activities together with other information. In our next issues, we will add a dining guide, events and services that everyone should know about when coming to The Gambia.

We believe that the smallest country in mainland Africa is a perfect destination where you can combine relaxation, adventure, sport, wildlife, history, music, culture and more without spending a lot of time travelling.

The Gambia has it all.

If you choose luxury holidays, The Gambia won’t disappoint you. From accommodation options to private transfers in a luxury car, fascinating dining options and tailor-made activities with VIP services are offered at every step.

With the travel services that we offer, you can put your mind to ease, relax and let us take care of everything! Do you need transport to and from the Banjul International Airport? Do you like stress-free travel and want a smooth arrival and departure at Banjul Airport?

We can take care of all formalities at every stage of your journey at the airport. You will be guided through the security checkpoints and baggage delivery area using our Priority/VIP fast track lane. Staff members at the airport will also help you with your arrival visa and entry clearance (visa expenses apply), verification of travel documentation and they will welcome you at the foot of the aircraft and escort to the airport bus, go with you through Fast track Covid protocol, airport security fees, immigration procedure, and they will assist you in the collection of baggage, fast track through Customs Control, baggage trolley assistance and finally escort you to the vehicle.

We partner with companies that have a large fleet of prestigious cars and their professional drivers are selected for their courtesy, discretion, and perfect knowledge of Banjul and its region. 

Your baggage didn't arrive? No worries, we can take care of all baggage claim procedures and we will deliver your baggage to your place of stay. 

Thanks to these services, our clients are able to travel stress-free, reach their destination in a shorter amount of time, focus on more important activities and truly enjoy their stay in the country.

Kindly contact us if you want to book a departure VIP lounge, fast-track arrival or departure airport services or transportation from/to International Airport in a luxury car.

Not a fan of holiday packages? Well, The Gambia is the right place for you. You can create your holiday according to your budget, interest, and style. It is perfect for those who don’t want to be limited to one location, dining schedule and pre-arranged activities. We believe this is best for travellers seeking active, exciting, unique, and adventurous holiday options.

There is a wide choice of accommodation options for all types of travellers. Big hotels and resorts, small boutique hotels, bungalows, lodges, self-catering apartments, hostels, guest houses, rooms only, campsites, and you can also choose to stay with a Gambian family.

You can select any location of your accommodation you want. You can choose to be in the capital, directly on the beach, in the village, by the river, close to the tourist strip or in nature.

You can combine different options if you are flexible and don’t want to stay in one place.

Check some of the options by clicking the button below. We will gradually add more accommodation options, from homestays to self-catering apartments, lodges, guesthouses and hotels.



Dining? You have it all as long as you stay in the Atlantic resort area. From cheap street food to the finest, expensive dining option. Restaurants offer national and international dishes. You can have breakfast in the bush with birds and monkeys, lunch with an ocean view on the beach and a gala dinner with entertainment in a boutique hotel. Options are unlimited and mostly at affordable prices.

If you need recommendations for your dining options or you are looking for the perfect venue for your celebration, please do not hesitate to contact us. We can help you to plan and organize your wedding, birthday party or business conference. Think of us as your personal assistant in The Gambia. 

Don't miss our dining guide platform coming in our next editions!

You can also visit numerous places to experience the country beyond the tourist strip. There are nature reserves and parks, colourful villages, food markets, craft markets, mosques, churches, family compounds, nurseries & schools, fish villages, museums, workshops, vegetable gardens, etc.

When you escape the Atlantic resort area, you will experience another side of the country. When travelling to explore the interior of The Gambia, you will find yourself deep in classic West African landscapes scattered with traditional villages and crisscrossed by red-earth roads, rich in eco-tourism opportunities, wilderness, wildlife, and birdwatching. In addition, you will experience West African music and rural culture as there are always vibrant festivals and events full of traditional drumming, energetic dancing, and customary wrestling matches.

Need active holidays? What are you looking for? River cruises, wildlife exploring, kayaking, jet skiing, surfing, fishing, hiking, volunteering, birdwatching, dancing, music lessons, capoeira, yoga, cycling, and other workshops?

Options are unlimited. Contact us to see the options in the area you are staying.

A journey to Africa must include observing animal life. Although there are no “Big 5” in The Gambia, there are over 500 bird species and many other animals to be spotted, which makes it a heavenly destination for animal lovers. Animal and birdlife are extremely diverse and exotic. Several habitat zones dictate the wildlife of The Gambia over its total land area of about 10,000 square kilometres.

In addition to all other experiences, The Gambia can give you a magnificent view of chimpanzees and giant hippos in their natural environment. Did you know that there are only a few countries in the world where you can see chimps in their natural habitat? How fantastic it is that The Gambia is one of them! Really magical and magnificent!

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

The Gambia is also a place where summer never ends. It is an all-year destination that is a comfortable flight away from major European destinations and capitals.

Having lived in The Gambia, we know how important it is to get first-hand information and listen to your wants and needs. We specialise in creating a one-of-a-kind tailormade stay on The Smiling Coast of Africa. 

Thinking of coming to The Gambia? Our booking support team would love to assist you in planning your holidays in The Gambia.
