What do I need to know before moving to Gambia?

Answer this Question

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Gambia, they said...

"Gambia is a small, predominantly Muslim country located in West Africa. It is known for its friendly people and beautiful beaches. The official language is English, but many locals also speak Mandinka, Wolof, and Fula. The currency is the Gambian Dalasi. It is important to be aware of the local customs and traditions, as well as the political situation in the country. Healthcare is limited, so it is important to have adequate health insurance. The climate is tropical, with hot and humid weather year-round. It is also important to be aware of the potential risks of malaria and other tropical diseases. Finally, it is important to research the cost of living in Gambia before moving, as it can be quite expensive," said a member in Gambia.
