Banjul, officially the City of Banjul and formerly known as Bathurst, is the capital of The Gambia and is in a division of the same name. Change things up with these side-trips from Banjul: Tanji / Karinti Bird Reserve (in Tanji), Fort James Island (in North Bank Division) and Makasutu Culture Forest (in Serekunda). There's lots more to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Katchikally Crocodile Pool, look for gifts at Senegambia Craft Market, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Roman Catholic Cathedral, and see what you can catch with a fishing tour.

To see maps, other places to visit, where to stay, and more tourist information, you can read our Banjul online day trip planner .

Fort Lauderdale, USA to Banjul is an approximately 27-hour flight. You'll lose 5 hours traveling from Fort Lauderdale to Banjul due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Fort Lauderdale in October, you will find days in Banjul are somewhat warmer (92°F), and nights are about the same (74°F). Finish up your sightseeing early on the 25th (Fri) so you can go by car to Kartong.
