Banjul - Gambia Highlights:
State House, King Fuad Mosque, Nature Reserves
Situated on a sandy peninsula at the tip of Banjul (formerly St Mary's) Island, it is a modern city laid out in grid form. Located at the mouth of Gambia Riverit is the capital of The Gambia. Among its chief industries are peanut and fish processing and the production of filigree jewellery and woven fabrics for the expanding tourist industry. Be sure not to miss the State House and the minarets of the King Fuad Mosque as you stroll through Banjul's historic districts. The people are very hospitable to foreigners.

Surrounded by dense mangrove woods, from the city you can visit such exotic locations as the holy crocodile pond of Katchikally, whose water is said to aid fertility. You can also board the simple roofless boats in the Makasutu Nature Reserve and come a little it closer to the secrets of the thick mangrove wood and learn about traditional folklore in Camp Makasutu. The Abuko Reserve is also nearby.

Banjul (then Bathurst) was founded in 1816 when purchased from the King of the Kombos by the British with cash, rum, tobacco, and firearms, as a port and a base for suppressing the slave trade. It was subsequently governed at times as part of the British colony of Sierra Leone before becoming the capital of the British Colony and Protectorate of The Gambia in 1889. It continued as the national capital when The Gambia achieved independence in 1965, and was renamed Banjul in 1973.
