Gambia is the smallest country on mainland Africa and except for a short strip of coastline is completely surrounded by Senegal. On Otto’s tour Gambia was just the destination for a day trip while travelling through its big neighbour. For the former Lufthansa manager Gunther Holtorf, Gambia played an important role in the development of aviation. Before the Second World War the German airline operated its transatlantic airmail services from there to Brazil.
