Gambia in April

Am thinking of going to Gambia (The Kairaba Hotel) for two weeks in mid to end of April. Can anybody tell me what the weather might be like and whether it will quiet or fairly busy at that time. Any negatives about going at that time.

Bristol, United...

Hi there

It'll be HOT! and after the school holidays should be fairly quiet.

I've been there 4 times and love it - i can also hook you up with a really reliable local guide who has been a family friend for years - go - you'll have a great time

Hi Elwyndener

We found it really nice when we went at the end of April beginning of May time. It is quieter with not as many tourists as there are less flights from the UK. The beaches seemed to be very quiet too and some bars and eateries were closed. Most of the bumpsters had moved on so we weren't hassled by them, but they don't really bother us anyway!! Traders where desperate for any business so seemed more persistant than normal but they know that you cannot possibley help all of them so they do back off! We visited (over the last 6 years) nearly every month bar Christmas and always had a brilliant time!!
