Don't forget the malaria tablets!
Luggage and bags: If you are going to be doing quite a lot of moving around, it is best to take as lighter- weight backpack as possible.
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Don't take anything that is too inportant to you, as the red dust gets everywhere.... It is generally a very dry and hot country, so light weight clothing, along with a pair of sturdy shoes and sandals should be fine.
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Malaria can be a very serious problem, so definately take anti-malarials, also diarrhoea remedies and rehydrationa salts.
Photo Equipment: In Banjul and most other centres it is possible to get film, but anywhere else it is next to impossible, so it is best to stock up before you leave.
Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: A mosquito net is probably a good idea if you are planning to sleep outside, but if you are in a lodge then a mosquito burner is probably a good idea.
Miscellaneous: A waterbottle and torch can come in handy, particularly if staying in any rural areas.
Luggage and bags: Bring a recognisable suitcase as when you arrive at Banjul airport, your luggage comes ouyt randomly on two conveyer belts and you need to grab it as soon as you see it otherwise it may disappear.
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Pack light clothes, summer clothes. Plenty of loose clothing. In February the tempperatures hit around 110 degrees.
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Take your malaria tablets
Photo Equipment: Take the right batteries for your camera and a spare one as they are hard to come by in the Gambia.
Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: Sun tan Lotion !!
