The COVID-19 Pandemic has placed us in a position where we need to make decisions in order to put the safety of our clients and staff as our highest priority.

With this in mind we have come to the decision that it has become essential to temporarily close the doors to our retail branches and ensure the well being of our staff and clients.

In line with government advice on social distancing we have closed our doors to limit the amount of contact our staff and clients are exposed to. Our team are still available to answer your questions by email and can be reached by emailing

We will be contacting clients who currently have bookings and may be affected. We are working through these bookings in date order and will be in touch shortly.

We thank you for your understanding in us having to take such precautions. We hope you and your family stay well and look forward to seeing you all when we re-open the doors to our branches.

Best Wishes
From all at Prestbury Travel

          Use the drop-down menu below to explore Gambia.

          The Gambia is located on the West Coast of Africa and despite it being the smallest county within the continent it still has so much to offer. Those seeking a beach destination will love the 80km of coastline boasting wide sandy beaches fringed by the Atlantic Ocean. The Gambian coast has some great beach resorts, which are mostly clustered around the northern tip of the country and the mouth of the River Gambia. Bask on wide sandy beaches in lively resorts such as Bakau, Kololi and Fajara, and hit the restaurants, bars and clubs when the sun goes down.

          For those who enjoy a spot of bird twitching then the wildlife filled nature reserves and forest parks are the perfect spot for outdoor lovers. From colourful craft markets and village museums to ancient burial sites and crocodile visits this fascinating country has so many varying cultural experiences to offer.
