When oh when are the flight companies going to pick up on the fact that no one flies on a saturday or a sunday during October half term which means families and teachers can't go out there (unless they pull their kids out of school). They could make a killing!
The first year we went, we flew out on a Saturday with GE but apparently that was a one off. When we did go, the weather was fab and the place was just really getting going for the season.
If they want to make Gambia a tourist destination then she should open the season a week earlier.
