"Womens clothes" The Gambia Favorite Tip by susu77

The Gambia General: 47 reviews and 65 photos

Favorite thing: The Gambian women are just beautiful and atleast what I saw, very fine dressed. Traditional clothes are colourful and nicely cut. Meny women use scarf in their head in traditional way.
They and little girls use lot of effort in their hairdos too. Wigs are quite popular also.
Of course I knew that people in Africa carry things on top of the head but really seeing it felt truly exotic. Another thing exotic for me was how women carried their babyes in slings.
