Highlights of The Gambia
The Gambia is a country in West Africa. It is the smallest country within mainland Africa and is surrounded by Senegal and has the Atlantic Ocean on its coastline.
The peculiar shape of the country are the result of territorial compromises made during the 19th century. This is when the British controlled the lower Gambia River, and the French, which ruled the neighbouring colony of Senegal.
Although the country’s small ocean coastline limits marine fishing, there are some commercial fishing offshore and in the river.
The Gambia has a wet and dry tropical climate. Therefore it has an intense rainy season occurring between June and October and by a longer dry season the rest of the year.
Visits to The Gambia will provide some great wildlife spotting opportunities. So don’t forget to pack your binoculars. There are numerous nature habitats around the country. Including the Abuko Nature Reserve and Kachikally Crocodile Pool. Green Vervet monkeys are a common sight in hotel grounds. Therefore, proving that you’re never too far away from some Gambian wildlife.
Highlights of Banjul
The capital of The Gambia is the tiny port city of Banjul. It’s located in the southern part of the Gambia River on Saint Mary’s Island. It’s cut off from the mainland by a series of creeks lined with mangroves.
Banjul is relatively unvisited by tourists who tend to head straight to the beautiful beaches. The streets with its sun bleached colonial buildings have a historic feel. In addition to this, it is also the home to a busy harbour and market that showcases the best of urban Africa.
Albert Market & The Mosque
Albert market is a street market named after Queen Victoria´s husband Prince Albert. The market comprises of three sections. The wholesale/retail market, the food market and the tourist market. The market usually opens from 8am to 7pm. Don’t forget to haggle for a bargain! Finally, after the market, why not visit the city’s main mosque which is the King Fahad Mosque. A very beautiful building which I’m sure visitors of any religion would appreciate.
