Bijilo— 2 nights
One of a handful of small suburbs to the west of Banjul, Bijilo provides a calm alternative to the nearby capital.Change things up with these side-trips from Bijilo: Banjul (Abuko Nature Reserve & River Gambia National Park). There's lots more to do: look for all kinds of wild species at Katchikally Crocodile Pool, soothe aching muscles at some of the top local wellness centers, enjoy the sand and surf at Kotu Beach, and don't miss a visit to Arch 22.
