"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
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 in TOP-SHOP.
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
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."
