As the Gambia Experience we are the only UK Tour Operator that specialises in holidays to The Gambia and this year we are celebrating 27 years of travelling to The Gambia. We like to think that, her own glorious people aside, no one knows the country quite like we do. The company has grown considerably during these 27 years but we still adhere to the company's founding principles, which are to provide superb, detailed levels of product knowledge and the highest levels of personal service we can. 


The Gambia Experience

During the past 27 years the owners, Stephen & Sandra Wilde, along with their staff, have developed a vast knowledge of The Gambia, building good relationships with hoteliers and can now offer many properties or room types exclusively.

Sustainable Tourism

Sustainable Tourism

We at The Gambia Experience have always been aware of the impact of tourism on the immediate and worldwide environment, which is why we’ve always strived to be a ‘green’ company. We continually endeavor to negate any detrimental impacts our business has on our destinations whilst sustaining long term environmental and social benefits.
