Banjul Other Attraction

Don't expect to see tough guys wrestling crocs here—this is one of three sacred crocodile pools in Gambia, which are primarily fertility shrines. Childless women might bring kola nuts as offerings in hope of receiving the gift of offspring. That’s not to say other requests aren’t made. Wrestlers may ask for victories, or parents for the protection of their children. At this site, you can walk a nature trail and tour a museum detailing the Bakau’s history and culture.
