As well as being the capital of the West African country of Gambia, the city of Banjul is also the largest in the country. However, despite this, it is one of the smaller capitals in the world. It is also worth noting that Banjul is located on an island, which is its primary attraction. Although the highlight of this destination, for any visitor, is almost certainly the peace and serenity that it has to offer, it is also home to one of the most respected cultural festivals of the world, the Banjul Demba Cultural Festival.
Although the ambience of Banjul is the primary draw for most tourists from European countries, visitors who are culturally inclined are advised to time their visit to coincide with the famous Banjul Demba Cultural Festival. This is a long established old event, which has, as its primary purpose, the showcasing of the Gambian culture. The Banjul Demba Cultural Festival usually starts off with a big parade or carnival around the city. Following this, tourists can find various forms of Gambian cultural based activities as forums, literary discussions, quizzes and a range of performing arts displays.
In addition to this event, another interesting aspect of Banjul, especially with motor sport enthusiasts, is that it is the city where the Plymouth Dakar Challenge ends. Therefore, if you time your arrival to coincide with the end of the challenge, you can watch the lucky survivors rumble across the finish line. Flights to this somewhat out of the ordinary destination land at Banjul International Airport.
