March holidays in Gambia March holidays in Gambia

In just six hours, and without the slightest hint of jetlag, you could be lazing on the shores of Gambia, on the western coast of Africa. With at least 10 hours of sunshine a day, and temperatures topping 34°C, this is a destination for the most dedicated of sun lovers! Of course, there’s plenty to keep you busy if you do have enough of sunbathing, including snorkelling, deep-sea fishing, abseiling and scuba diving on the coast. Head inland, and you could even go on safari in the Kiang West National Park: explore the savannahs for antelope, and search the mangroves for West African manatees.

The point at which east meets west, Turkey’s best explored in spring before summer temperatures become stifling.

A particularly great base from which to explore Turkish cuisine and culture, you can easily spend your days admiring beautiful mosques, perusing colourful souks, and taking excursions to ancient Greek ruins. You can even watch dolphins in the Sea of Marmara! With fewer crowds and better prices, Turkey’s a fantastic choice.
