Senegal

Senegal is a country in West Africa. It owes its name to the Sénégal River that borders it to the east and north.

Senegal is externally bounded by the Atlantic Ocean to the west, Mauritania to the north, Mali to the east, and Guinea and Guinea-Bissau to the south; internally it almost completely surrounds The Gambia, namely on the north, east and south, except for Gambia's short Atlantic coastline.

The climate is tropical with two seasons: the dry season and the rainy season

Dakar the capital city of Senegal, is located at the westernmost tip of the country on the Cap-Vert peninsula About 500 kilometres off the coast lie the Cape Verde Islands. During the 17th and 18th centuries, numerous trading posts, belonging to various colonial empires, were established along the coast. The town of St. Louis became the capital of French West Africa (Afrique occidentale française, or AOF) before it was moved to Dakar in 1902. Dakar became its capital in 1960 at the time of independence from France.
