african climate

The African west coast as seen by the Portuguese of the 15th century would seem inhospitable. Gambia / Nigeria -There are no easily accessible ports. The coast is prone to sandbars and few major tributaries. The Niger River and River Gambia are both barely accessible due to large amounts of sand washed to the deltas. Mangrove swamps and tropical forests consisting mainly of bamboo. Away from the rivers it is wooded grasslands. Temperatures range between 79 to 84 degrees F. with humidly at evening time as high as 95 to 100 percent
