Travel and Tourism - Senegal - May 2013

Senegal is located on the west coast of Africa, covering an area equal to the combined size of England and Scotland, and with a population of almost 13 million. Since obtaining independence from France in 1960, presidents have been democratically elected and the overall climate has been relatively peaceful.

Casamance in the south is the only region that has been dealing with rebel unrest despite peace treaties being signed in 2001. The World Bank elevated Senegal to lower-middle income status in 2010 but approximately 34% of Senegal’s population still live on less than US$1.25 a day. The infrastructure is well developed and about 47% of the population has access to electricity; this figure reaches over 80% in urban areas.
