Gambia is home to multiple bird species, many of which are present in the wetlands down Kankujereh Road. To make the most of your bird-sighting, join a guided tour or start by taking a trip to Bijilo Forest Park & Nature Trail, known for its abundant fauna.
Do & See
The small, gritty port town of Banjul rarely figures as the final destination on visitor itineraries. If a few hours is all you have, explore the Royal Albert Market – the town's busiest commercial grounds – and shop around Ecowas and Liberation Avenues. If time permits, pay a visit to Banjul's most known landmark (Arch 22) – sweeping views unfold from its top floor. For further pursuits, look to nearby settlements, abundant natural parks and the beaches of Gambia's coastline.
