Orbit Travel Agency last week had an orientation session for all those traveling through the Agency to perform the 2019 Hajj in the Muslims Holy city of Makkah. The session, which took place at the Agency’s grounds, was meant to orient the pilgrims on departure and return schedules, accommodation arrangements and currency.

Hajj operations manager Alhaji Momodu Joof explained that the Agency is the only licensed Agency in the country to perform Hajj travelling operations, saying its Hajj package is the cheapest so far in the country.

Managing director Aja Amie Cherry said the package includes traveling expenses, accommodation, three square meals a day, experienced Hajj guides to assist the pilgrims and an experienced medical team. “The round trip price is 314, 000 Dalasis,” she said.

Baba Leigh, chief Imam of Kanifing East Central Mosque made a presentation on what hajj was and why believers should perform it. He also advised the pilgrims to comport themselves as the agency is doing their best to reduce the cost so as to make it available to every Gambian citizen to the holy pilgrimage.
