Travel & Tourism Investment Opportunities In Gambia

Travel & Tourism Investments In Gambia


Renowned as the ‘Smiling Coast of Africa’ and the Gateway to West Africa, The Gambia remains an attractive tourism destination given our unique geographical position and strategic location combined with our proximity to Europe and English as our official language.

The country is endowed with numerous investment opportunities in the tourism value chain. With the unprecedented increase in tourism arrival numbers over the years coupled with the robust government strategy to boost tourism and increase arrivals to half a million by the year 2020.

This aspiration provides investment opportunities for further enhancement of the tourism product suite along with new investment opportunities in:

  • maritime infrastructure – notably marinas
  • development of new 4 star and 5 star hotels
  • upgrading of budget hotels to 3 star and 4 star hotels
  • eco-tourism
  • recreational parks
  • integrated resorts
  • community, culture and heritage tourism
  • river cruise excursions
  • eco-village and community based tourism
  • bike trails
  • bird watching and recreational fishing
  • golfing

With the untapped potential in the tourism industry, there is urgent need for further strengthening of the industry with investments in the value chain. The Government of the Gambia, through the Gambia Investment & Export Promotion Agency, has a number of incentives to encourage and facilitate investments in the tourism industry, including tax breaks and allocation of land for investment under a lease scheme.

Disputes with Property Developers & Builders in Gambia

Disputes with Property Developers & Builders in The Gambia
Unfortunately not all Gambian property developers are honest and some honest developers get into difficulties which mean that the development cannot be completed.

This can leave people who have bought property in the developments (especially if they did not use an independent lawyer to protect their position) with losses of thousands of pounds.

We can help by trying to recover those losses, through the courts or in other ways.

We can do this for individuals or for whole groups of people who have been affected.

Gambia Tax Lawyer, Paying Tax in Gambia

Paying Taxes in Gambia – Gambia Tax Lawyers


If you live or work in another country or if you have holiday home in another country, you will need to understand the tax system in that country.

You will need to file tax returns and you will want to minimise your tax obligations both during your lifetime and on your death.

If you are an investor what matters is the amount you receive after tax and so you too will need good tax advice to limit your obligation to pay.

Giving that advice requires an understanding of the tax law in the country in question AND in your own country.

There is no point in saving tax in The Gambia only to find that the steps you have taken greatly increase your obligations in (say) the UK.

International tax advice is an integral part of many of the cases we deal with on a day to day basis.

Advice to Action Groups, Committees in Gambia

Advice to Action Groups and Committees in Gambia

Very often you can find yourself in a position where you have perfectly good legal rights but where the cost of protecting those rights is just too high for one person to pay.

In these cases we can sometimes set up or act for a group of people who have all been affected by the same problem.

For example, a group of people who have bought property in the same development and where the developer has failed to deliver the properties or honour his contract.

Or for a group of people who are in dispute with an unscrupulous timeshare operator.

This can reduce the cost per person from thousands of pounds to a few hundred and make taking action economically viable.
