Introducing Banjul


It is believed that the region around Banjul was inhabited for about 1000 years even before its discovery by the Portuguese in the 15th century. It is documented that the British began to settle there at the beginning of the 19th century to stop the slave trade and control the region. Banjul, sustaining the country's economy with peanut and palm oil trade, is a port town on the Atlantic coast where you may spend enjoyable time.
