"The TOP-SHOP in The Gambia
has existed since 1985. To prevent any upcoming confusion,
we have nothing to do with the famous British TOP SHOP.
We offer a wide range of African arts and crafts from
the whole region of West-Africa, items of our own production,
like beaded jewelry, bags, garments and T-Shirts, as
well as selected jewelry and gift items from other parts
of the world.
Our prices are set reasonably and as they are fixed,
you can save your energy not having to barter.
If you like peaceful shopping or just browsing around
in a quiet atmosphere, you will certainly enjoy a visit
Our shops are located in Senegambia Beach Hotel (Kololi),
Kombo Beach Hotel, Bungalow Beach Hotel (Kotu) and Ocean
Bay Hotel (Cape Point). During the tourist season all
of the shops are open 7 days a week from morning to
evening, except for the one in Bungalow Beach, which
is open until 6pm from Monday until Saturday.
In Senegambia Beach Hotel we also run a gallery with
paintings by local Gambian artists. All reasonably priced
and for your convenience we offer to pack any purchased
painting (and also larger carvings) so you can take
them home with you without risking any damage on the
flight. The Gallery is open every day and it is located
on the 1st floor above the reception.
If you would like to meet an artist at work, you are
welcome to visit "The Painter's Place" in
Kololi. Abdou Karim Ba works and exhibits his works
in a nice garden setting.
We hope to see you in The Gambia and we are sure you
will not regret it."
