Things to Do

Located in the heart of Bakau, Katchically Crocodile Pool is one of three sacred pools in Africa. In The Gambia, crocodiles represent the power of fertility and women experiencing difficulties in conceiving would bathe in the sacred pool in hope and prayer. The pool is believed to also bring good luck to the unfortunate, and is why it still remains today.

Take the opportunity to get up close to the Crocodile’s in their habitat along with a guide to supervise the encounters. In the surrounding forest, you may catch some playful monkey’s swinging amongst the trees; a fun sight to see.

Read up on Gambian history in the museum next to the Crocodile pool, which contains many interesting artefacts. If you fancy some time away from the beach scene, then this is the perfect trip to do some exploring and discover a real taste of The Gambia.
