There's much to discover in the Gambia
On this and the next page some examples are listed. Please feel free to let me know of your own ideas for a trip. Excursions to Senegal are also possible. So let's travel...

Banjul, the capital of The Gambia
We can visit the National Museum, which has some interesting ethnographic displays and further admire the colonial architecture in the area near July 22nd Square and climb to the top of Arch 22 for great views over the city.

Niumi National Park at Ginak Island

Could be called at when visiting Banjul, turning it into a full day trip.

The lively urban markets
Where Gambians shop for vegetables, spices, fish, clothing, fabric and household goods: Banjul's Albert Market and the sprawling commercial heart of the busy town of Serrekunda are particularly colourful places to browse. So let's go.

With a small boat to explore the mangrove creeks

The boats known locally as Bolons of the Tanbi Wetlands near the mouth of the River Gambia, or the Bao Bolon Wetland Reserve in central Gambia. These are world-class areas for bird watching.

Upriver from Banjul, explore Gambian colonial history
By visiting the Exhibition of the Slave Trade at Albreda/Jufureh, twin villages that were made famous by Alex Haley's novel Roots, then cross to James Island, mid-river, to see its ruined fort.

The Lamin Lodge
Is a unique restaurant built on stilts overlooking the mangrove creek: enjoy your diner or lunch at a special place. Motor boats and canoes can be hired to explore the creeks.

Georgetown and catch sight
Of the fascinating circles in eastern Gambia. Standing stones around Wassu. Their origin is shrouded in mystery but they are thought to mark prehistoric burial grounds. Could be a 2 or 3 days trip up country, also exploring the Baboon Island and boating across the river.

Enjoy the beautiful mid-river location
Of Janjanbureh Island in eastern Gambia, an excellent spot to unwind in an unspoilt rustic environment, with plenty of good places to walk or bird watch in the vicinity.

Walk through the tropical forest

Of the Abuko Nature Reserve, which is within easy reach of the main resort areas and has crocodiles, monkeys, reptiles and a host of bird species. It is best early in the morning.

At Makasutu Culture Forest, join a tour

Of the beautiful forest park, learning about local medicinal plants and woodland fauna, then take a boat trip by dugout canoe and enjoy a spirited display of local-style music and dance.

Meet a friendly croc

At the Katchikali Crocodile Pool, a site sacred to the Mandinka tribe in the coastal village of Bakau. Also ancient fertility rites are sometimes held here.

Visit a local kindergarten
At Brikama. Enjoy the smiling faces of enthusiastic school children during this excursion. Of course we can extend the tour and pass along nice other areas.
