Sénégal

Français Sénégal - République du Sénégal

La République du Sénégal est un pays d'Afrique de l'Ouest. Il est bordé par l'océan Atlantique à l'ouest, la Mauritanie au nord et l'est, le Mali à l'est et la Guinée et la Guinée-Bissau au sud. La Gambie forme une quasi-enclave dans le Sénégal, pénétrant à plus de 300 km à l'intérieur des terres (et séparant du reste du pays la région naturelle de Casamance). Les îles du Cap-Vert sont situées à 560 km de la côte sénégalaise. Son climat est tropical et sec avec deux saisons : la saison sèche et la saison des pluies. Le pays doit son nom au fleuve qui le borde a l'est et au nord et qui prend sa source dans le Fouta Djallon en Guinée.

Notes and references

General remarks:

  • The WIKIMEDIA COMMONS Atlas of the World is an organized and commented collection of geographical, political and historical maps available at Wikimedia Commons. The main page is therefore the portal to maps and cartography on Wikimedia. That page contains links to entries by country, continent and by topic as well as general notes and references.
  • Every entry has an introduction section in English. If other languages are native and/or official in an entity, introductions in other languages are added in separate sections. The text of the introduction(s) is based on the content of the Wikipedia encyclopedia. For sources of the introduction see therefore the Wikipedia entries linked to. The same goes for the texts in the history sections.
  • Historical maps are included in the continent, country and dependency entries.
  • The status of various entities is disputed. See the content for the entities concerned.
  • The maps of former countries that are more or less continued by a present-day country or had a territory included in only one or two countries are included in the atlas of the present-day country. For example the Ottoman Empire can be found in the Atlas of Turkey.
