This was our first stop on our Gambia river cruise and it was good to stretch our legs. We were met by the "stone king" who told us about the importance of the number 7. We then read the posters in the small museum to find out that the best guess for the stones is that they were a burial... More

We visited these stone circles during our voyage by boat along the River Gambia. We were taken in a beaten up bus that didn't manage to make it back again (they found us another bus). The stone circles are in the middle of the countryside well worth a visit. The local guide (self-styled, "The Stoneman") was unique, conjuring up numbers... More

We visited as part of a two day tour to Georgetown and was worth a look at the history of Gambia and also to see the stones that are on the bank notes.

Interesting circles of stones. Big stones put in circles. Does anyone know what they were used for, why they were built?

We visited Wassu as part of a 2 day trip to Georgetown (Jangjangbureh), it was a nice stop of and we had a highly entertaining tour from 'The Stoneman' - an eccentric local who has made it his life's work studying the circles and their astrological significance. The stones themselves are quite interesting, there were more than I expected and... More

We visited this place during an organized 2-day-trip from Kotu to Georgetown. The site itself is small. Once stepped out of our tourist car we just had to walk a few steps to see the stone circles. For starters begin with the little exhibition. A little contribution of 50 dalasi gives you permission to take pictures inside (and supports the... More

Worth a visit if you are passing this way, if only to talk to the eccentric "stoneman" guide, whose life story is almost as interesting as that of the stones themselves.

We visited the Wassu Stone Circles as part of our 2 day trip to Georgetown. One of the circles being depicted on the 50 dalasi bill shows the importance of this site to the Gambians. The fact that the stones are volcanic (when there have never been volcanos in the Gambia) and the fact that nobody really knows who made... More
