Peak season:

The tiny country of The Gambia is the smallest in Africa, just 30 miles wide. But near-constant sunshine year round, thanks to its location between the Tropic of Cancer and the Equator, is a big draw for UK visitors to take cheap flights to Gambia. It’s also an inexpensive exotic locale. The tourist area hugs the North Atlantic coastline, and white sands, palm trees, blue seas plus the large amounts of sunshine combine for a classic beach holiday but without breaking the bank. The capital, Banjul, is on the Southern side of the river mouth, where all flights to Gambia arrive. Many travellers only use Banjul as a gateway to the rest of the country, but the city is worth visiting in its own right. Accommodation wise there plenty of budget hotels and also a handful of luxury spa hotels where you can indulge in a luxury massage or treatment for a fraction of what you’d pay back home. The Gambia has a subtropical climate with a dry season and a rainy season. Most people like to take flights to Gambia from October to April when there is the least rainfall. Many tour operators only have packages to The Gambia in this time and accommodation prices will be higher but still comparatively cheap. Temperatures can get very warm inland, but remain cooler along the coast.

Off season:

June to October is the rainy season and also the low season for tourism. You’ll still be able to find flights to Gambia from the UK but some accommodation may be closed in the rainy season.
