Senegal Trips & Tours


Gambia shares very close ethnic and cultural ties with its neighbour Senegal, both countries suffered colonialism. Senegal was once a French colony and Gambia gained its independence from Britain in 1965.

We offer an exciting alternative to the standard Gambia holiday hotel and beach package and the tours and trips to Senegal organised by Arch will allow you to compare the life and culture of our close neighbours.
