Hotel details
The Kombo Beach Hotel, right on the lively Kotu Beach, has a swimming pool, a small outdoor gym, three bars and two restaurants, both with ocean-view terraces. The hotel's entertainment team can teach you how to play the djembe, a West African drum, or cook local foods.

All rooms have air conditioning, a TV, a small fridge and either a balcony or a terrace.

About The Gambia
The Gambia, a 6-hour flight from the UK within the same time zone, might be the smallest country on mainland Africa, but it packs plenty in, and its English-speaking locals are considered the "friendliest place on the continent" (Rough Guides). The capital, Banjul, is a short cab ride from the hotel -- we recommend visiting Albert Market for a great snapshot of Gambian life and the chance to haggle for souvenirs. You're almost guaranteed sunshine here, too -- temperatures hover around 30ºC all year round

Other nearby attractions include the fishing village of Tanji, where you can watch fishermen unloading their catch at lunchtime. And remember to pack your binoculars -- The Gambia is home to more than 540 species of birds.

The Gambia Experience was awarded bronze in the Best Small Holiday Company to Africa category at the 2018 British Travel Awards.
