The Gambia Experience has secured an additional Christmas flight to The Gambia to meet high demand for a festive winter sun getaway. With key dates selling fast, the tour operator has added a Gatwick departure on Thursday December 22nd with 14-night packages returning from Banjul on January 5th (2023).


The second flight to be added to its usual twice weekly service, now gives customers a choice of four departures for the popular Christmas period, with flights on December 20th, 21st, 22nd, and 23rd via partner airline Titan Airways. Convenient daytime departure slots are offered on all flights with a choice of Economy and 'Star Class’ flight upgrades on board a 150-seat A320 aircraft. Lounge access at Gatwick and Banjul, along with private transfers, can also be arranged.

Offering tropical sunshine within six hours of flying time from the UK, The Gambia is on the same time zone, and with temperatures averaging 32 degrees, has long been an appealing holiday choice for winter sun lovers. Its unspoilt golden sand beaches, abundant birds and wildlife and vibrant African culture give visitors a true taste of Africa without the jet lag. The Gambia Experience offers package, flight-only, and tailor-made holidays, as well as multi-centres and stays in neighbouring Senegal, with accommodation to suit all tastes and budgets.
