Bijilo Forest Park is a lovely area to visit. It is great to be able to be to have the monkeys approach you. You are advised not to feed them but we went in the off season so brought some nuts to give them and it was a really great experience having them take it from your hand. There are... 更多
Nice forest near the sea and beach, 5 minutes walk from the senegambia strip. Entrance price is 150 Dalasi or 3 euro's, negociate and it will be cheaper. Locals pay only 50 Dalasi. You can easily spot the green velvet monkeys and red colubus (they stay high in tree's) The green velvet monkeys like peanuts and fruit, don't be afraid... 更多

I've been doing primate research and travelling to The Gambia for the last 7 years. My time at Bijilo Forest Park has always been amazing. It's an easy park to get because it's right in Senegambia, and the trails are easy to walk. The primates are used to tourists, so you can great photos of red colobus and callithrix monkeys... 更多

We came here with our own guide, and paid 150 dalasis each (which I thought wasn't too bad). We went from half 4 to half 6, and most of the monkeys, we later discovered, were hanging around at the hotel opposite, the cheeky things! So I would suggest going between 2 and half 4. Nevertheless it is a wonderful walk... 更多
We were staying in Kololi and this park was just a short walk down the beach (ignore the taxi drivers offering this as part of a tour as it is close by an easy to do yourself), entrance cost around 60 Dalasis. The forest was stunning with interesting plants right next to the beach. There were many green vervet monkey... 更多
