Gambia is a fascinating country, and we want to support you in experiencing all aspects of its culture and landscape, from taking walks in the Bijilo Forest Park to eating traditional benachin.

Learn about Expat Life in Gambia

Gambia has much to offer. It is a nature lover's paradise, home to the outstanding Abuko Nature Reserve and the Makasutu Culure Forest, but it also maintains a rich culture, through events such as the Albert Market in Banjul. However, many are also attracted to Gambia by its economic opportunities; there are thriving tourism and urban development industries in the capital, Banjul, and in other major Gambian cities.

InterNations is the largest global network for expatriates, with communities in 420 cities around the world. Meet fellow global minds in your city of residence or get to know local expatriates before you're moving or traveling abroad and never feel like a stranger. InterNations makes it easy for you to stay in touch with your expat friends, both online and offline, so you can grow your network of friends and contacts from all over the world. Whether they live in Australia or in the Philippines, InterNations allows you to be close to them even if they are miles away.

    Gambia is very different from my native Cameroon. With InterNations I managed to settle quickly here in Banjul, my new home.
