Hi Guys Ifeyinwa here,
If you follow me on Instagram you’ll know I just got back from The Gambia. I’d planned so many trips there over the years but somehow the plans always fell through, so when I was sent there on a tw Magazine work assignment I was beyond excited.
I was sent there to cover the opening of a brand new resort called Flourish Wellness Resort, Kotu Beach. I was in Gambia for 4 days and had an amazing time relaxing on the beach, resting, treating myself to some good food and spa treatments – it was exactly what I needed. The Gambia is stunning and it’s only 3 and a half hours away from Lagos. I stayed at the Kairaba hotel which was lovely but had a bit too many animals roaming around for my liking – peacocks, cats, monkeys, all sorts of birds, high monitor lizards *eek*. The pace of the country is very relaxed and the people are incredibly friendly, if you’re looking for a break from the hustle and bustle of Nigeria I’d totally recommend a trip to The Gambia.
I’ve always wanted to travel more within Africa and my trips to Ghana and Gambia this year have really opened my eyes to the beauty we have right here on our continent. I can’t wait to see more! Have you ever been to The Gambia? What other African countries would you recommend I visit?
