Katchikally Crocodile Pool
The Kachikally Crocodile Pool is one of three sacred crocodile pools in the Gambia. The crocodile is a symbol of fertility and the sacred sites are still used for rituals by women who find difficulties getting pregnant. The legend of crocodiles bringing fertility to women dates back 500 years when the Bojang family first settled in the area. It’s said that the fertility spirit rewarded their kindness by providing them with a magic pool. All they had to do was populate it with wildlife. So, they put two crocodiles in the pool. Locals believe that the original two are ancestral to the crocodiles who inhabit it today. Kachikally crocodile pool is nestled within six acres of tropical forest and there are plenty of nature trails and footpaths to follow if you want to see more of the park.
