When I first planned this trip, I never though I will go to Gambia. But when you are travelling, you always heard of people talking about a certain country nearby which always make you wanted to go there. Gambia is the one. When I was traveling around morocco, I told people I will fly to Dakar, everyone suggested me to go to Gambia also because it’s a place to relax:P So, after 2 days in Senegal, I decided I need to go there to take a look. I hired the same guide again who took me to Lac Rose and it’s freaking 350 Euro just to go there for 2 days! But flying there will be around US$580. Maybe I did the right choice to overland over there?????????
