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.
Explore Serekunda's surroundings by going to Tanje Village Museum (in Tanji) and Abuko Nature Reserve (in Banjul). Spend the 8th (Mon) exploring nature at River Gambia National Park. There's much more to do: stroll through Katchikally Crocodile Pool, kick back and relax at Kotu Beach, don't miss a visit to Arch 22, and get a dose of the wild on Gambia Santosu Drives Experiences.
