The Republic of Senegal is a country in West Africa.  This West African country bordered by Guinea-Bissau to the southwest, Guinea to the southeast, Mali to the east, and Mauritania in the north.  It also shares a boundary with The Gambia, a country that is on a narrow parcel of land along the edge of the Gambia River, which splits Senegal’s southern region of Casamance from the rest of the country.  Senegal also shares a maritime border with Cape Verde.  The name “Senegal” comes from Wolof (a language of the region) “Sununu Gaal“, which means “Our Boat”. Dakar is the capital of the country and the port of entry for all the Ocean Freight Containers.  Port of Dakar is also used for shipping to Bamako Mali.
