Undoubtedly, you will need to connect to the web during your stay in
The Gambia. Don’t expect quick connection, however—the servers are
dial-up and fairly slow, especially during the prime internet hours
(between 11am to 5:00 pm).
For best results, go early in the day and
save your work or long emails often—noting is worse than a power
outage right before sending detailed email report of your adventures.
Most places have generators, but sometimes they take a few seconds (or
minutes) to kick on. Prices for surfing the web are fairly cheap,
about D15 for half an hour in most places.
Great atmosphere (an actual café serving cold soft drinks, and
food if you’re lucky). Very quick server, though a little far
from the hotel on 76 Kairaba Avenue.
Ceesay Internet Cafe (Bakau)

Kairaba Avenue, Serrekunda

Tel: 446 2940 / 1

Tel: 4378430 or 4378432
web cafes throughout the Greater Banjul area.
UTG computer lab
Tel: 4372213 or 4395062
has a free computer lab for student use, internet included. It
is located in the Administration building on MDI Road. Pretty
slow, but you certainly can’t beat the price.
YMCA Cyber Café
Tel: 4392647 or 4370240
This is a decent place, especially if you’re on MDI Road for
classes—the prices are the cheapest around. The bad news is this
place is rather small, has only a few computers, and is usually
crowded with school kids.
