  • May 22 : Mungo Park sets off from Portsmouth on board the merchant ship Endeavor on its first expedition to Africa to explore the course of the Niger . A month later he goes ashore in Jillifree on the Gambia . After a few days of traveling inland, he reached Pisania on July 5th , near today's Karantaba Tenda . Here he spends five months in an English trading post with the slave trader Dr. Laidley to wait for the rainy season to acclimate and learn Mandingo . At the end of July, he probably fell ill with malaria, which was still unknown at the time . At the end of November, Park and two servants set off inland from Pisania. They crossed the Wuli Empire without any major problems and reached the city of Tallika in Bondu on December 13th . On December 21st he arrives in Fatteconda, the capital of Bondus. Since there was war between Kaarta and Bambara at the time , and Mungo Park encountered a number of refugees, he chose the north-eastern route via Ludamar to get to Bambara in order not to get caught between the fronts .
  • After France invades the Netherlands, British troops under General James Henry Craig land in Cape Town to secure the settlement for William V of Orange . After an initial refusal , the Governor of Cape Town hands over the Cape Colony to the British on September 16 . He is all the more ready for this, as the Khoi Khoi are taking advantage of the unstable situation and join the British.
