The Gambia is the closest tropical country to Europe in which English is spoken and Winter sunshine guaranteed. A microcosm of West Africa, in its peoples, languages, cultures and religions. A floral and ornithological delight of gardens flamboyant with flowers, of savanna, forests creeks and beeches vibrant with birds. For the smallest independent state in Africa, The Gambia does not lack superlatives. It is however lacking in up-to-date documentation that does justice to its visual attractions as well. In this second edition of his second book on the country, Michael Tomkinson combines the colour of 300 illustrations with well-researched writing. Revised in 1999-2000, this new Gambia also sets out to mark a new departure in travel publishing. Inserted inside the back cover is a pull out Directory which, updated and replaced annually, is intended not only as a comprehensive guide to all airlines, tour operators, hotels, guest houses, camps and lodges currently functioning but also goes, where others fear to tread, into the facts behind the multi-million pound holiday industry that enables some 120,000 visitors annually to experience this third world resort.
