Kololi Beach Travel Guide
Kololi Beach Attractions
Bijilo Forest Park - Trek down pathways through the lush vegetation and vine covered trees for a spot of birdwatching. Monkeys will be swinging alongside in the treetops, just to keep you company. The park extends down amonst the dunes to the sea and has quite a few good viewing points along the way.
Bakua Botanical Garden - Take in some more birdwatching and a walk down to the nearby fishing port to watch the fisherfolk at work.
Kololi Beach - A stretch of beach well known for its tourist appeal, sunshine, golden sand, bikinis - what more can one say? After lazing on the beach support the locals by spending some time - and money - at the stalls along the beach.
African Queen The best Restaurant on the strip, great food and cocktails, you have to try the Tracy D cocktail, named after me. The staff are all lovely and great fun.

Fab food! Jojo's restaurant is just sublime! We came across this place after going to The Gambia for 10 years. The food, and the wonderful Gambian hospitality, are just superb. 5 star!

Jojo's JoJos restaurant on the right just up from Sarges hotel is newly open but stands out as the best restaurant in the resort the food was incredibly good definitely to London restaurant standards, good luck to the lovely JoJo and her team as they gave us a very warm welcome on both occasions we ate there.
