Building a brighter future for children
in The Gambia.
As a tour operator The Gambia Experience has always contributed to the local community and have done so primarily through helping to fund the building, renovating and equipping of schools in The Gambia, West Africa. Our school development fund was set up in 1989 and together with the help of our clients, we have assisted over 120 school projects in The Gambia.
