Yeeees! Africa! That's it!

Tell me, how long have you been dreaming and gathering the courage to travel to the African continent?

From a young age? Yes?

We understand you.

Wanna hear some good news?

Travelling to the Gambia is not such "a big deal" anymore. The land of smiling people is ideal for an introduction to your African adventure. The team of locals we work with will accept you, just like any other volunteer so far. You can become part of a big family very quickly. And your trip can be unforgettable if, of course, you want to.

For whom is volunteering in The Gambia appropriate?

For anyone who wants a different trip. A trip where you will spend 99% of the time with the locals and other volunteers. A journey where you still have enough time for yourself and your thoughts.

It will be a warm winter here.

What are you waiting for?

DO YOU FOLLOW THE CROWD OR DO YOU LIKE TO EXPLORE THE LESS KNOWN?
I have been asked this question many times: "So where did you find The Gambia?"

I didn't. The Gambia found me.

I enjoyed life in Egypt immensely but upon my return, I wanted to go further south. I was attracted to real Africa. Africa, we know from documentaries.

You can’t find tribes with extremely different customs, the Big 5 and the high mountains in The Gambia. But you can find a thousand other attractions.

If you are looking for a different destination, I invite you to first explore the land of smiling people, The Gambia, from your safe and comfortable home and then head to the smallest continental African country where you will enjoy it immensely.

Where can you find an online magazine?

From my own experience, I can really recommend this place. Food was delicious, very friendly staff and detailed oriented, very relaxing environment, interesting eco-technologies which I have never seen before, birdwatching paradise, management with innovative ideas, etc.

Sometimes people can be mad at you only because you have the courage to follow your dreams. But in fact they are mad at themselves because they don't have what you have.

If you understand that, you must continue to inspire them more so they may take a decision and change life for themselves.

What ever you do in your life, do it for others as well. Give, give, give, give what you have. Don't hold things, knowledge, experiences for yourself only. Sharing is caring. I promise you that you will be more happy.

It's Monday. Time for new challenges.
