Senegal, Land and Resources

Fouta Djallon, Casamance, Saloum, main rivers, northern boundary

Most of Senegal is an undulating plain lying below 100 m (330 ft). Elevations rise above 500 m (1,600 ft) only in the extreme southeast in the foothills of the Fouta Djallon (Futa Jallon). The main rivers are the Senegal, which forms the northern boundary, and the Saloum, Gambia, and Casamance. Although these rivers are subject to seasonal variations in their flow, all are navigable on their lower courses.
