Africa - The Gambia (Chapter)
This is the The Gambia chapter from Lonely Planet’s Africa guidebook.
The Gambia’s beaches invite visitors to laze and linger on package tours, but there’s more than sun and surf. Fishing villages are nature reserves are within easy reach of the clamorous Atlantic resorts, ecolodges and small wildlife parks dot the inland, and it’s a bird lovers’ utopia.
- indulge in fabulous food, then party the night away in the Atlantic Coast resorts
- be teased by monkeys on the 4.5km nature trail in Bijilo Forest Park and look out for rare birds and giant crocodiles in tiny Abuko Nature Reserve
- follow the call of the birds in the forest around Janjangbureh (Georgetown)
- restaurants & accommodation
Coverage includes: Banjul, Serekunda & the Atlantic Coast, Western Gambia, Abuko Nature Reserve, Makasutu Culture Forest & Ballabu Conservation Project, Tanji, Brufut & around, Gunjur, Lower Gambia River, Jufureh & James Island, Upper Gambia River, Janjangbureh & around.
