We are due to go to The Gambia 20th Sept for a week. We have never been before and are now quite anxious about the Ebola outbreak in neighbouring countries. Has anyone been recently and heard anything locally?
Is the area really a place where you stay in your hotel resort most of the time and just take short walks down the street, or is it safe to, for example, hire your own car and go exploring. I have read that there is "corruption at all levels". I want to be able to relax on holiday and not feel anxious, stressed or constantly looking over my shoulder for thieves etc. CAn anyone put my mind at rest before I decide to cancel and go elsewhere.
