Senegal is a country in West Africa. The Senegalese landscape consists mainly of the rolling sandy plains of the western Sahel which rise to foothills in the southeast. The Cape Verde islands lie 560km off the Senegalese coast, but Cap-Vert (“Cape Green”) is a maritime placemark, set at the foot of “Les Mammelles”, a 105m cliff resting at one end of the Cap-Vert peninsula onto which is settled Senegal’s capital Dakar, and 1km south of the “Pointe des Almadies”, the westernmost point in Africa. Dakar, the capital of the country is located on the Cap-Vert peninsula on the Atlantic coast and is the westernmost city on the African mainland.

The local scenery on the ground is as follows.
