Full Day Tour Of Banjul, Capital City Of The Gambia
Banjul is the capital of The Gambia and only has around 60,000, making it the smallest capital in Africa. The reason why Banjul is so small is because of it’s location, on a peninsula at the mouth of the Gambia river.
In 1816, the British founded Banjul as a trading post and base for suppressing the slave trade. It was first named Bathurst after Henry Bathurst, the secretary of the British Colonial Office, but was changed to Banjul in 1973.
Attractions in the city include the Gambian National Museum, the Albert Market, Banjul State House, Banjul Court House, two cathedrals and several major mosques.
