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 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.
