The Gambia is home to several long white sandy stretches of beach. The main ones are in the resorts of Kololi, Kotu and Cape Point. You will find the local 'bumsters' selling all sorts of things from towels to fruit and even a massage! Why not try your hand at bartering with them to get the best price!!
Abuko Nature Reserve
Containing a huge array of wildlife set in forest and grasslands, including monkeys, porcupines, and a large variety of reptiles, such as lizards, geckos and snakes.
It's hard to believe that this compact town is actually a capital city. The Gambia is a small country but Banjul is tiny, especially by African standards, with only 50,000 inhabitants (the whole county is home to around 1.2 million people). The result is a pleasant, hassle-free city that's clean, friendly and quite unlike large cities. Banjul stands on St Mary's Island on the banks of the River Gambia and is a great place for an authentic Gambia holiday. The centre is well worth a visit as it has many old British colonial buildings, colourful street markets and craft stalls, including Albert Market. This is a typical vibrant west African market where the choice of goods on sale is amazing. Boat excursions run to Albreda, of 'Roots' fame, home of slave houses and a slave trading station on James Island. Cape Point is situated just west of Banjul city centre.
