For my very first post on Winter Sun Holidays I have decided to focus on my favourite continent of Africa. most people won't associate Africa and a cheap holiday abroad, but it is possible and is perfect if you are looking for a Winter Sun Holiday.
So why go to The Gambia?
The Gambia has incredible uncrowded beaches, which are as yet unspoilt. You can laze in the Hot African sun, do some scuba diving or snorkelling or go on an excursion. How does fishing sound, as the fishing in the Gambia is excellent. You can also venture further inland into the bush, the huge variety of bird life making a Gambia holiday great for birdwatchers.
Flights to Gambia
As holidays in the Gambia become more and more common, flights to Gambia get cheaper and cheaper and it is even possible to find last minute and cheap flight deals these days. The flight duration is only 6 hours, and to think that you will then be stepping off in Africa!
The weather in Gambia?
Obviously one of the main reasons you are planning a winter sun holiday is to escape the cold weather, well the good news is that the weather in Gambia pretty good all year round and averages over 30°C every month, even in the winter!
So when is the best time to go to the Gambia?
The great news is if you are looking for winter dun holidays, then from around the middle of October to the early part of June is the dry season in the Gambia this is also the main tourist season, so there are cheap flights to Gambia as well as more regular flights available. At this time of the year, you are almost guaranteed sunshine!!
