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.

There's still lots to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Katchikally Crocodile Pool, make a trip to Arch 22, contemplate the long history of Fort James Island, and expand your understanding of the military at Fort Bullen.
