You will see and feel the warmth of welcome from the local people as you walk through the craft market.

Deep Sea Fishing

Otherwise known as “Sport Fishing” there are different types of fishing available here depending on the time of year and your preference. Either option involves a short trip to Denton Bridge by land or a nearby beach to pick up a speed boat. Local fisherman will prepare the rods, any required bait and talk you through how to fish.

If the conditions are right you can go after Barracuda, Red Snapper, Captain, Grouper and sometimes Tuna. This involves trolling with rod and line and spinner and landing with a net. Bottom fishing requires a weight and bait and is done with the boat at anchor. Here you are more likely to catch the delicious Butterfish, Lady fish and Grouper.

Jennah Day Trip

Travel by boat and 4×4 to the island of Jennah. More information from info@jungleinnadjungle.com

Depart Banjul…

The information below covers the most common types of travel and reflects the UK government’s understanding of the rules currently in place. Unless otherwise stated, this information is for travellers using a full ‘British Citizen’ passport. The authorities in the country or territory you’re travelling to are responsible for setting and enforcing the rules for entry. If you’re unclear about any aspect of the entry requirements, or you need further reassurance, you’ll need to contact the embassy, high commission or consulate of the country or territory you’re travelling to. You should also consider checking with your transport provider or travel company to make sure your passport and other travel documents meet their requirements.

VISAS

For visits of less than a month, you don’t need to get a visa before you travel. British nationals are given a 28 day stamp in their passports on arrival. You can get further 28-day extensions from the Immigration Office in Banjul or the Tourist Police Stations in the Tourism Development Area. If you’re planning to enter The Gambia for a period longer than 3 months, check entry requirements with the Gambian High Commission in London.

PASSPORT VALIDITY

HEALTH

If you’re planning to travel outside the UK, your travel health needs will depend on your individual situation, including:

Your destination, how long you’ll stay, what you’ll be doing, your general health. Ideally consult with your travel healthcare practitioner 6-8 weeks in advance of travel. If your trip is sooner, contact them anyway, they may still be able to help and its never too late to seek advice. Many of the health problems experienced by travellers cannot be prevented by vaccinations and other measures need to be taken. These include food and water safety, accident prevention, care with sun exposure, avoiding insect bites and animal bites, and practicing good respiratory hygiene.

If you will be travelling with medication (including over the counter medication) you should check for any restrictions on medications before you travel, you can do this by contacting the embassy of the country you’re visiting.

​Gambia does have mosquito’s so ensure you have Malaria precautions. Avoid mosquito bites by covering up with clothing such as long sleeves and long trousers especially after sunset, using insect repellents on exposed skin and, when necessary, sleeping under a mosquito net. Malaria risk peaks in cases between July and September. Check with your doctor or nurse about suitable antimalarial tablets. Malaria is a serious disease transmitted by mosquitoes. You cannot be vaccinated against malaria.
