About Banjul

Banjul, formerly Bathurst, is the capital of Gambia, an African country. Compared to other African capitals, the city has a calm atmosphere, with a population of only 40,000. Surrounded by marshes, the city is built on an island. For this reason, it is difficult for the city to grow and develop. Outside the island surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean, the Serekunda city on the mainland is much more developed and crowded than the capital. At the time of its foundation the city was named after Henry Bathurst, one of the English colonists; it later acquired its current name, meaning "bamboo island". The city is usually warm. No significant temperature differences are seen throughout the year, and the temperatures usually range between 30-34 degrees Celsius.

Activities in the city are also very limited. You can visit the Albert Market, where you can buy tropical fruit, or visit bigger cities like Serekunda. Another alternative is to sunbathe on the beaches along the Atlantic Ocean and swim. Banjul International Airport, which is the only airport in the city, usually has flights to other African capitals.
