Banjul overview

Banjul is the capital of the Gambia, and its most populous city. It is also the place where the beautiful Gambia River meets the Atlantic Ocean. As such, this city has so many different things to offer the tourist, from bustling markets to scenic coastal regions and peaceful river cruises. Banjul is also home to some stunning national parks. Bijilo Forest Park is a great place to wander through some native wilderness, whilst The Gambia River National Park is a magical attraction, situated on a set of islands. Visit the Abuko Nature Reserve if you want to enjoy a family friendly day out, meeting some of the many colourful birds and animals that are native to this region of Africa. One of the key landmarks in the city is ‘Arch 22’. Arch 22 is a museum, but one of the main reasons that it is so popular is that it also offers superb views over the city from its roof (which is reached by a small stairway). Another great thing to see when you visit the city is Banjul market, which is ideal if you want to bring home some authentic souvenirs.
