The Gambia Six-logy 2 – The bathroom of fertility


Do you remember the pool with the crocos? I am told it has special powers – it gives babies. Its waters are used for the bath of fertility.

Beside the croco pool is a traditional toilet. It is open to whoso is badly in need of a child and believes it can work. Our guide tells me people have actually had their bath in the toilet and it worked for them. It is part of the mystery of the Mandinka people.

You may like the ancient bathroom which triggers fertility! That’s if you believe and want a child so badly! I wouldn’t….. But, make sure to have a visit when next you visit the Gambia.

Well, take a listen as our guide speaks in the video below 😊

Cheers! And don’t forget to stay on for the rest of my Gambia ‘six-logy’ 🙂
