West African wonder
The sliver of land that is Gambia makes it easy to enjoy both coast and wildlife: the country is intersected by the river Gambia, where monkeys, reptiles and myriad bird species can be seen. Travelpack has a week from 19 July at the five-star Kololi Beach hotel, including return flights from Gatwick, transfers and breakfast, for £569. The hotel boasts restaurants, bars, gardens and a sandy coastline. Book by tomorrow. www.travelpack.com
Take off to the Tyrol
The Austrian Tyrol transforms into a verdant playground in summer, with all manner of activities to try. When you're not biking or hiking through the epic landscape, bed down for the night at the Gruberhof Hotel, in the scenic town of Igls. The seven-night break offered by Inghams costs £262, on a half-board basis with Monarch flights from Manchester departing on 13 or 16 July and transfers. www.inghams.co.uk
