Bus in car park in Brikama

The local transportation system in The Gambia can be a bit tricky at first, but once you get to know the system, you’ll find it is quite easy, especially in the urban areas. Most people travel by shared taxis or cars. To go longer distances, you first have to go to a car park and find a car going to your destination.  Once the car is filled with passengers it will leave, sometimes it can take a while, but if you’re lucky, you might be the last passenger filling the car.





Ferry between Banjul and Barra

The roads might be rough sometimes, especially in the wet season when the dirt roads get muddy. There are three places to cross the river; Banjul to Barra, Soma to Farafenni and the crossing by Georgetown. To go upcountry the northriver road is better. Serrekunda to Basse is a about 360km trip and takes 9 to 12 hours. Soma and Farafenni is halfway to Basse and takes four to six hours. A good rule is to not be in a hurry and always have patience when travelling in the Gambia, and you will have no problem getting where you want.
