Calabar, a district on the West Coast of Africa, is not yet very clearly defined geographically. Since 1884 it has been under British protection. It is traversed by the rivers New and Old Calabar. The country is flat and the climate unhealthy. Its products embrace palm-oil, indiarubber, and shea butter. The chief towns, Duke Town and Creek Town, the Old Calabar, are British mission stations.
