“Sunugal” means in Wolof ( the native language) “our boat”. Also well known as “Senegal”, this country is located in West Africa. 90% of the people are Muslims. You will meet a lot of people with Christian names yet they are Muslims, or visa versa. The capital of Senegal, Dakar, is the westernmost point in Africa. The country, slightly smaller than South Dakota, surrounds Gambia on three sides and is bordered on the north by Mauritania, on the east by Mali, and on the south by Guinea and Guinea-Bissau.
Senegal is mainly a low-lying country, with a semi-desert area in the north and northeast and forests in the southwest. The largest rivers include the Senegal in the north and the Casamance in the southern tropical climate region. Senegal never had a war and the people are peaceful. The country is surrounded by the Atlantic. The capital Dakar is vibrant in its culture. Leopold Sedar Senghor, the first President of the country, implanted a strong education of Arts and Culture. Cheikh Anta Diop proved that the first people in Egypt were black. The father of the African Cinema is Ousmane Sembene. He is from Senegal. If you decide to come to Senegal, make sure you don’t miss the green region of Casamance in the South, Goree Island, Ngor Island or Saint Louis (the birth city of the first world champion of box Batling Siki).
