Songhai's Location


The Songhai Empire was in Africa in North-West of Nigeria but moved up to West of Sudan.
There were two capitals in the Songhai kingdom. The first capital was Kukiya which was located north of the Falls of Labezanga. The second capital was Gao which developed north of Kukiya.

First Mali took over Ghana. Then Songhai took over Mali which was good because the two kings Sunni Ali and Askia Muhammad extended the empire.
