THE SMALLEST COUNTRY ON THE ENTIRE AFRICAN CONTINENT IS FOCUSING ENTIRELY ON TOURISM IN 2021/22. THE POPULATION OF THE GAMBIA IMPRESSES WITH WARMTH & HUMOR & AND THE COUNTRY WITH SAFETY.
THE GAMBIA surprises with a low crime rate despite an economic malaise. Combined with a consistently warm friendliness of the people, the country gives every Gambia traveler a safe feeling of welcome. The smallest country on the African continent is focusing entirely on tourism in 2021/22. The people of The Gambia also impress with their warmth. There is a lot of laughter, good humor is transferred to vacationers and the mood.
Some lodging establishments of varying quality will continue to impress with good booking figures in September 2021. In the upscale segment, the Tamala Beach Resort deserves special mention, and in the guesthouse segment, the DABO HOUSE can be mentioned. The latter is not only a very family-run small hotel, but it also supports musicians from West Africa through training and performance opportunities. Friends of cultural life can experience here dancers and musicians at the highest level.
Some small hotels are successful even in autumn 2021
It shines even in the off-season with many Europeans. Especially the cheap airfares with Vueling from Barcelona let many Spaniards come to Gambia and to Dabo House. Also other Europeans like to be guests here and this shows the potential of The Gambia in tourism.
In The Gambia, there is plenty of room for creativity and culture. The unusual DABO guesthouse also sees itself as a cultural center, because music is very important here. But not every day. Only when the vacationers want it, the band supported by DABO HOUSE is engaged on request.
Otherwise it is pleasantly quiet here. The DABO HOUSE team does its best to support local musicians with talent, and some of the musicians in the DABO HOUSE music group have even studied in Stockholm. There are always fantastic performances by the international band. Guests can also book, for example, an appropriate music evening. Then the musicians come to DABO HOUSE in different line-ups and present their fantastic show. Some of the artists have studied in Stockholm and the professionalism of the group allows conclusions about the excellent education.
Where does the success of cosy guest houses like the Dabo House come from?
The product THE GAMBIA is coherent
That the idea of bringing Europeans vacationers from e.g. Germany, Austria and Switzerland back to The Gambia can work can be seen from satisfied Germans who are vacationing in The Gambia in July and August 2021. I have had conversations with various vacationers and the result is consistently positive. The Gambia obviously makes people happy. Berlin mother Diana and her four children feel very much at home at DABO HOUSE in The Gambia.
The Gambia: Security situation good, low crime rate
– the pleasant climate throughout the year
– the really excellent beach landscapes
– and tempting nature adventures (which vacationers could and should experience on the Gambia River).
PEOPLE in GAMBIA VERY FRIENDLY
WHAT IS LIFE LIKE IN THE GAMBIA IN SEPTEMBER 2021?
Completely free. No restrictions, no limitations. Bars, restaurants and discos are open, there is dancing, eating and smacking that you feel like you were here before the Covid pandemic. A few people wear a mask. For people infected with the freedom virus, The Gambia is a great place. Women like to show themselves in elegant dresses, in a miniskirt or skin-tight jeans. The Gambia is very tolerant, and there is apparently no finger-pointing.
Muslims in the country dominate the majority of people, but Christians are not disadvantaged in faith. The Gambia is truly the most tolerant Muslim country that the authors know of. Very sympathetic when we compare it to some of the other better known destinations.
THE GAMBIA VACATIONERS HELP THE PEOPLE
Tourism is important! The country lacks alternative sources of income. There are quite a few hotels in The Gambia that seem to be on the verge of a boom, and there are also always guesthouses and hotels that have successfully defied the crisis in 2020 and 2021 to date.
DABO HOUSE CULTURE CENTRE
Dabo House musicians … prepare their show in front of the eager guests of DABO HOUSE. When the musicians put on their performance at DABO HOUSE, the audience is electrified. They are „really good“, says e.g. Rob Whalen from Albany.
SPECIAL RECOMMENDATION FOR FAMILIES WITH KIDS IS THE DABO HOUSE:
For people who want to experience their winter vacation in safe yet summer temperatures, The Gambia is definitely worth considering. Thus, the interest of for example US-Americans affected by recurrent violence in the safe country of The Gambia is growing, some are vacationing here on a trial basis and … want to stay forever.
