Makasutu Culture Forest

A visit to the Makasutu Culture Forest (about a 45-minute drive out of Banjul) is an experience to be had by visitors to the area looking to experience Gambian wildlife guided by an experienced local. There is a free to use on-site pool, so do bring your swimwear.

Do & See

The small, gritty port town of Banjul rarely figures as the final destination on visitor itineraries. If a few hours is all you have, explore the Royal Albert Market – the town's busiest commercial grounds – and shop around Ecowas and Liberation Avenues. If time permits, pay a visit to Banjul's most known landmark (Arch 22) – sweeping views unfold from its top floor. For further pursuits, look to nearby settlements, abundant natural parks and the beaches of Gambia's coastline.
