Banjul Vacation Packages

The small but lively capital of The Gambia in Africa is famous for its colonial architecture, bustling markets, nature reserves and beaches.

Banjul, the capital of The Gambia, is largely unaffected by tourism and offers a genuine African experience. 

Stroll along Dobson Street, which cuts through the heart of the Old Town, to see a collection of colonial buildings including the Portuguese-built State House. Look for houses characterized by steep roofs and iron balconies, many built during the 1800s by immigrants from Sierra Leone. 

Browse the Albert Market where the stalls in the labyrinth of alleys offer anything from fabrics and jewelry to tropical fruits. Pause to watch the woodcrafters at work in the arts and crafts section. 

Find artifacts relating to the city’s earliest settlers and colonial era at the National Museum. Walk along Independence Drive to the tall Arch 22 monument and enjoy panoramic views over the city and river. A small museum next to the monument retells the story of the city’s military 1994 coup d’état, which saw the rise to power of the current government. 

Take a break at Banjul Beach or visit the Gambia’s Atlantic coast beach resorts. Relax on the golden sands of tranquil Cape Point Beach or watch fisherman bring in the day’s catch at Bakau Beach. Kololi Beach is famous for its restaurants and nightlife.

Take a taxi to Abuko Nature Reserve and spot birds, crocodiles and monkeys. Book a cruise around the River Gambia National Park. This collection of five flat islands is covered in rain forest and mangrove swamps.

Banjul sits on an island at the meeting point of the Gambia River and Atlantic Ocean. This port city is one of the smallest African capitals and is best explored on foot. Although most visits to The Gambia are trouble-free, care should be taken due to political unrest in the area. Stay aware of your surroundings to ensure you enjoy a safe, pleasant experience.

Reach Banjul by flying to the city’s international airport or by ferry from Barra. Accommodation options are limited in Banjul, so many people choose to stay at the nearby beach resorts and visit the city on daytrips.
