The Gambia Experience has been announced as the winner of ‘Best Holiday Company to sub-Saharan Africa’, receiving Gold in the prestigious 2016 British Travel Awards. The announcement was made on 23 November at a glamorous Gala Awards ceremony, held in London and attended by close to a thousand travel industry people.

The Gambia Experience has been providing holidays to The Gambia for 29 years and is proud to remain the UK’s leading holiday specialist to this destination, working closely with hoteliers and suppliers. Offering a great range of flight options and hotels as well as excursions and tours, its staff in The Gambia and the UK work hard to ensure its customers have the best holiday experience.

Chris Rowles, managing director at The Gambia Experience commented: “We are thrilled to be the recipient of this prestigious award which is a testament to the hard work of all our staff, based at our Senegambia office and here in the UK. I would also like to thank hoteliers, our ground handler Discovery Tours, and all our suppliers, for their continued support which enables us to provide our customers with a superior service and a high-quality product.”

British Travel Awards’ chief executive Lorraine Barnes Burton said: “The Gambia Experience is to be congratulated on winning ‘Best Holiday Company to sub-Saharan Africa’. The competition was fierce this year with more companies entering the competition than ever before - but ultimately it is the travelling public who decide the winners by voting for the travel companies they consider the best in the business. The British Travel Awards is the largest awards programme in the UK and to win is truly an accolade and testament to the great products and services travel companies offer to their customers.”
