The Banjul Division region

Banjul is the capital of The Gambia, West Africa.

Albert market and its surrounding roads is a roads, a great place to start leisurely walking and shopping for local crafts, batiks, silver jewellery clothes, shoes, fruits and vegetables, and household goods. Remember to always haggle down prices by at least 50 per cent of the asking price.

Another place well worth looking at is the African Heritage Centre displaying and selling objects of art from all round the Gambia.

While in Banjul look out for the War Memorial & Fountain, near MacCarthy Square, erected to commemorate the coronation of Britain's King George VI in 1937. MacCarthy Square has a colonial atmosphere, with pleasant 19th-century architecture. There is also a children's playground with a modern play area.

Kotu

Serekunda is the largest town in The Gambia.

"Just perfect"

We stayed three weeks during the holiday season at the sundowners and gladly recommend that place. We wanted something clean and quite, with a swimming pool that is actually big enough to swim in, we wanted internet as we also intended to work and we wanted a place that is not too big, so that one can feel at home. At the same time it should have sufficient apartments to allow for friends to come and join us for a few days. Sundowners is really beautiful and calm, located in the quieter area of Kotu which is still close enough for the beach and Senegambia. Dave and Bella took care of the place while we were there and they did a great job. All the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. We really enjoyed our stay.

"Could not ask for a better stay with a fantastic pool and no busters."

I could live there. The staff make you feel like family. Every thing is clean, the pool is cleaned daily. And no busters outside giving you trouble. Ok if you want to entertain too. Some places make you feel like your staying in a prison but here it's very relaxed. 100% I will stay on my next visit.
