    I don't think they give safes to non residents. It is in Kerr Serign, within a walking distance of 5 minutes from the costal road. http://babula.info/index.php?id=79

    let me try... Kerr Serign borders Kololi. When you are in Senegambia Strip, pass the costal road and go into Kololi village. Then you find a junction with a big tree and 4 directions: Left, half left, right and straight. You take the road on the left, where you find a local shop at the corner. When you continue there you pass Babulas after a while.
    Or: You tur left from the costal road where you find the mechanics, opposite the monkey park, Second road on the right and you are there. Anywhere, there is also a signboard.
    Or: Do you know bar 777? From there you can see Babula's, it's in the same street. To 777 there's also a sign board on the costal road.

    Well if you thinking of re-visiting The Gambia ones or more in a year, why not try opening a bank account. You get your ATM card and have access to your money any time any were safe.
    No need for safety deposit box.

    Thanks for your help, i'm all sorted now and 90% sure i will be staying at Babula for a week.Once again thank you. Ps you wouldn't happen to know anything about an old English friend of mine Ian, who i heard had recently drowned which is peculiar because he never went in the sea ??

    no sorry, but when you are in The Gambia you may find somebody, these things do not happen very often and people know people who know :)
