Seeing the consequences of damanding a clean towel at every wash!


I have just been alerted to this 2011 Channel 4 Program 'Hijack Holiday' and on YouTube. It takes four young people out of Cocoa Ocean 5 star hotel and into a family home in Kotu. They learn to see the consequences of their luxury lifestyle demands and see how people really live only streets away from their luxury experiences. Luckily they do learn and I hope the lessons learnt continued in the future holiday choices.

This is exactly why Sustainable Tourism amd Community Based Tourism is developing in the country and especially away from the coast. I urge you all to watch HIJack Holiday The Gambia
