Why Move to The Gambia

Although it may the smallest country within the mainland, The Gambia really does have a lot to offer its residents. What draws a lot of people in is the culture, cost of living and the general way of life that’s on offer. As well as all of this, you also get plenty of sunshine throughout the year - with temperatures typically seeing highs of between 29°C and 34°C. We also can’t forget about the range of wildlife on offer. At just over 10km2, there are more than 560 different species of birds, six regularly seen primates and other creatures great and small to be witnessed.

Bijilo

Just 8km from the capital is Bijilo, a small picturesque resort that allows you to escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. What was once an old farming village has been transformed into an idyllic residential area with modern homes, highway office blocks, shops and lodges. The area itself is relatively small, so there’s very little nightlife here but there are a number of beachside cafes and nearby restaurants where you can enjoy a drink and a bite to eat.
 
Bijilo’s beaches are adorned with golden sand that shelves into crystal clear waters. As the beaches were once covered in dense woodland, there are some areas that are still surrounded by wild greenery and palm trees, all of which helps to add charm to the already serene setting you’re in.

There is a high demand for housing in Brufut, which is why the area itself is quickly becoming one of the most sought-after regions to find a property in Gambia. There’s also an array of things to do in Brufut, from the Brufut woods community project to the Katchikally Crocodile Pool and Museum.
 
Just a couple of kilometres inland from the coastal road, a wide, palm-dotted beach stretches along its Atlantic coastline. The beach area is lined with nice, golden sand, though you do have to make your way down the rust-coloured cliffs to gain access.
