Gambia Toursim Board (GTBOARD)

The Gambia Tourism Board is the institution mandated by Government to promote The Gambia as a Tourism destination. The mandate of the Gambia Tourism Board is established by The Gambia Tourism Board Act, 2011 and The Gambia Tourism Regulations, 2011.

The Gambia, renowned as the “Smiling Coast of Africa” and the gateway to West Africa, remains an attractive Tourism Destination given its unique geographical position and its strategic location on the mouth of the Atlantic Ocean. The country’s breadth taking and captivating Eco-Tourism facilities, the presence of over 550 species of birds, and the friendliness of our people are some of the unique advantages that make the destination a Tourism Paradise. Our proximity to Europe, a mere six-hour flight, with English as our official language makes the destination of choice for much of Europe

We are renowned for our majestic River Gambia; a unique and natural waterway that extends through the length of the country with a mix of salt and fresh water bodies of lagoons, islands, and islets for water sporting, fishing, and inland cruise activities

Destination Gambia is home to two World Heritage sites ascribed by UNESCO with 5 other sites of related cultural significance, evidencing our rich cultural heritage. This gives you the opportunity to see seven heritage sites in one visit. We are a multi-cultural society with a good presence of foreign nationals and we boast of a stable, peaceful, and religious-tolerant country.

We invite you to take advantage of your visit to The Gambia and experience the fun and loving people of the Gambia and we ask you to explore and discover “The Smiling Coast of Africa.”
