Satellite Institutions

Gambia Tourism and Hospitability Institute

Gambia Tourism and Hospitality Institute (GTHI), was first established as The Gambia Hotel School (GHS) with support from the German Agency for Technical Cooperation (GTZ) and the World Bank, between 1979 and 1981.

Gambia Tourism Board

The Gambia Tourism Authority was established by an Act of the National Assembly in July 2001 to promote, develop, regulate and oversee the tourism sector in the Gambia. This is comprised of hoteliers, travel businesses and entertainment.

National Centre for Arts and Culture

The National Centre for Arts and Culture (NCAC) is a semi- autonomous institution established by an Act of Parliament in December 1989 to preserve, promote and develop Gambian arts and culture. The 1989 Act is now superseded by the NCAC Act of 2003.

Our Mission

To expand and diversify the tourism products such as the Gambia river, culture and heritage, environmental assets and wellness and sports tourism with the view to inclusively increase economic gains from tourism through sustainable tourism practices and regulations and fostering public private partnership for the benefit of the environment, businesses and the people.

Our Vision

The Gambia with its unique flora and fauna, the majestic River Gambia and the exceptional tolerance and hospitality of its people, is a prime destination of choice for an environmentally friendly, sustainable, and responsible tourism that encompasses valued experiences of natural and cultural heritage, wellness, quality products and services.
