Cruise to Tim­buktu

All About History - - THE LOST CITY OF BENIN -

Benin City lay deep in­side the jun­gle but it was not cut off from other places. The River Niger con­nected it to Tim­buktu, the cap­i­tal of the wealthy Mali Em­prie, and other African king­doms in the north. The river also flowed south to the At­lantic Ocean, which is how Euro­peans sailed to the city.
