Bijilo Forest Park, Serrekunda

Bijilo Forest Park is a small rainforest nature reserve located on a cliff edge on the beach right next to the Kololi, Senegambia strip.

Bijilo Forest Park, which is about 11 kilometres from Banjul in the Western division of Kombo North, is an ideal place for eco-tourists & birdwatchers staying in the nearby Kairaba & Senegambia hotels.

Opened to tourists and the public in 1991, the nature park is an old forest which covers an area of 126 acres.

Bijilo Forest Park is a beautiful wildlife reserve to visit, either on your own or on a guided walk.

The park received around 23,000 visitors annually and it runs educational campaigns about the risks of deforestation.

A foot path with seating areas places occasionally along its length, meanders its way through varied woodland forest, shrub and tree savannah as well as sand dunes.

Bijilo Forest is host to over 133 species of birds such as the Red-necked Falcon, Grey Hornbill, Prinia and various types of Bee-eaters.

There are also 4 primate species that inhabit the park which are the patas monkey, green vervet monkeys, red colobus and the galagos or bushbabies.

There are signs asking visitors not to feed the monkeys as this will interfere with their natural behaviour and reduce their fear of humans and puts them in danger of being harmed or stolen.

Among the flora are lilies, wild orchids, salt-tolerant vines, magnificent silk cotton trees, palms and the odd looking baobab trees (sometimes called the upside down tree).
