She had to stamp her passport at the Gambian border so she could be allowed into the country.

From the border, Toke said she took another cab to Bara Ferry Port, where she took a ferry into Banjul.

Toke made use of her ECOWAS passport to travel to the West African country.

She wrote:

"The Gambia is one of those countries you travel to and you don’t want to get out in a hurry. However, there are little things to explore as a tourist focused on attractions. Will you be visiting the Gambia soon? Or have you visited before?"
