We are able to organise a range of day and half-day excursions, accompanied by a guide and driver. These trips can give you insight into The Gambia, away from the beach hotels, or can just be plain fun and adventure.
Tours as diverse as land based orientation tours; exciting 4-wheel drive bush safaris with beach barbecues; village visits with vibrant cultural entertainment; art, craft, and shopping; historical sites; jungle walks, swamp exploration by pirogue and camel safaris can all be taken as comfortable day trips, returning to the hotel in the time for evening meals.
Take a river cruise, stay in a tented camp, feel the depth of history both ancient and recent. Spend some time in the real Gambian countryside and take home experiences to remember. Follow one of the established routes or let us organize a tailor made tour. All excursions star and finish from the choice of hotel. Overnight stays are in local accomodation which, whilst more basic than the hotel, is nonetheless clean and comfortable.
All of our tours are accompanied by local, experienced with extensive knowledge of the country and culture. Longer excursions need careful planning, and the many years experience that Five Star Travel has, combined with our trained staff and international partnerships that offer fleets of vehicles for all occassions and terrains. The Quality control team ensures that you get the right equipment for the right excursion.
Five Star Travels has the knowledge and experience to arrange special interest tours for groups wishing to, for example birdwatch, fish, photograph and trek.
We make the most of our local contacts to ensure that our clients get the best from their stay with respect to their interest. We can also arrange exchange and educational visits for sports clubs, schools and colleges.
