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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at The Reptile Farm and Gunjur Village Museum. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Fort James Island and Jufureh. Change things up with these side-trips from Serekunda: Brikama Craft Market (in Brikama), Sanyang Main Mosque (in Sanyang) and Tanje Village Museum (in Tanji). Spend the 11th (Mon) exploring nature at River Gambia National Park. There's still lots to do: make a short side trip with Ecotours Gambia, stop by Top Shop Gambia, appreciate the history behind Youth Monument, and kick back and relax at Kotu Beach.

To see maps, photos, traveler tips, and other tourist information, read our Serekunda road trip app .

Drive from Gunjur to Serekunda in an hour. In February in Serekunda, expect temperatures between 39°C during the day and 20°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 13th (Wed) to allow time to travel back home.
