Serekunda

Serekunda hugs the Atlantic Ocean on one side and faces the Gambia River on the other, both of which provide an escape from the heat when temperatures rise.

Next up on the itinerary: tour the pleasant surroundings at Kotu Beach, steep yourself in history at Fort James Island, view the masterpieces at Lemonfish Art Gallery, and explore and take pictures at The Reptile Farm.

Smiling Coast
The smallest country of mainland Africa, the Gambia consists of the Gambia River valley and the hills that run along its edges. Taking off on a journey down the river during your vacation in Gambia allows you to discover a landscape known worldwide as a bird-watcher's paradise--you might want to keep your binoculars and camera handy at all times. The Atlantic coast boats a number of beach resorts with large hotels and shining sands, while the fishing villages farther inland offer an altogether more rustic and basic take on Gambian charm.
