(The) Gambia

River Gambia (nr Bansang)

(A definite FIVE TRUNK location)




Probably at Bansang (30km east of Georgetown) in an area known as the interior which for a country only 40km wide is a bit of an exaggeration. Just follow the local boys who look wet.

Grid Ref

Now thats a question.


The local boys swim here so it must be a delightfull spot to swim


Try not to worry too much about the very strong current, vultures sat on a tree nearby and the knowledge that hippos & crocodiles live upstream (don’t always trust the locals!).

Date of Last Swim

January 1998
