About Banjul

Something a little different now - the capital of Gambia, Banjul, is a maiden call for P&O Cruises. Lying at the mouth of the winding Gambia River, the island is connected to the mainland by several bridges. American novelist Alex Haley wrote about the slave trade in this region in his book 'Roots' and the main character, Kunta Kinte, conveyed the suffering experienced by so many Africans. Today you can visit Kunta Kinteh Island, a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site, to learn more about the trade and its abolition. Just a few miles outside the city, hippos wallow, hyenas snigger and monkeys screech in the region's nature reserves.
