Travel with Children

  • Start doing your research well in advance. Vaccinations for young ones may require multiple injections spaced a month apart.
  • Most travelling parents err on the side of extra caution when it comes to mosquitoes, bringing coils, nets and plenty of spray.
  • A pram isn't always handy negotiating the sandy and rutted streets. You may prefer to do as locals do and simply carry your child on your back.
  • Once you get over the logistical hurdles, you'll find The Gambia a warm and welcoming place for children. There's plenty to keep kids amused, from days on the beach or at the hotel pool to wildlife-watching on short excursions.
