Exploring Gunjur

My Magazine 2022/01
5 min
Gunjur is a coastal town on the south of The Gambia. Being very environmentally conscious as well as very traditional community, this could be a perfect spot if you want to enjoy a bit of unspoiled nature or an eco-retreat.

How to reach Gunjur?

If travelling from The Brusubi Turntable (roundabout) with public transport, you need to take a gelleh gelleh (also known as a bush taxi) to Tanji village, which will stop beside the Tanji fishing centre. From Tanji, you can take another bush taxi to Sanyang car park or Mosque to board another gelleh gelleh to drive you to Gunjur village. You might also be lucky to board a gelleh gelleh from The Turntable going straight to Sanyang village at its car park, where you can take a bush taxi straight to Gunjur. For a more comfortable, faster and more expensive experience, you can hire a taxi from Turntable or almost any other location to take you straight to Gunjur.
