Banjul is the capital city of Gambia, even if its relatively small compared to other major cities in the region.
The Greater Banjul Area encompasses several other major towns and settlements, with a diverse set of cultures represented in a relatively small space.
It has a tropical wet and dry climate; its dry season typically spans November and June.
Banjul makes an ideal destination for those looking to explore the best of Gambia, with the Gambia River flowing around the cityscape as it meets with the Atlantic Ocean, and breath-taking views of the water beyond the shores of St Mary's Island where this city has its foundations.
The capital of Gambia is a historic city and dates back to the seventeenth century. Many relics of colonial rule can still be seen, with plenty of centuries-old architecture to be marvelled at, plus a diverse local culture and eclectic culinary scene.
No visit to this region of Africa is complete without at least a few days spent in this inspiring capital city.
