Banjul, Gambia: Holiday review

  • Our holiday in Banjul

    Review by: Linda Hutchison

    Weather

    The weather in Banjul was absolutely beautiful every single day, all you need is thin cotton clothes, but in the evening I felt a bit chilly and there was a breeze, so I just put my shawl round my shoulders and I was fine. Hubby just had a short sleeve shirt on and was fine (macho).

    Holiday

    We stayed at the Ocean Bay Hotel, and had the best holiday we had ever had. The Hotel is beautiful, and all the staff are really friendly, we stayed in the hotel for all our meals because being the first time in the Gambia we weren't sure what eating out would be like. There is a market nearby and its very interesting, you will be mithered by the bumsters, but we had a laugh with them theres no harm in them. We visited the crocodile park, where we stroked an old croc named Charlie that was an experience. If you go take some excercise books and pencils and visit the local school its an eye opener, and they really appreciate your gift, and the kids are so cute. We had a sail on the river through the mangroves and visited the fish market but I found that too smelly. Once you've been to the Gambia your hooked, it definitely has a place in our hearts and we still email a couple of the locals. Try it and see for yourself (Fantastic) We're going again.
