Senegal and Guinea Bissau - November 26th, 2010

The landscape of West Africa gradually changes from the arid Sahara Desert in Mauritania in the north to greener, more vegetated land in Guinea-Bissau and Guinea. Situated in the tan and brown area of vegetation change are Senegal and the Gambia.

Two rivers can be seen reaching the coast: the Senegal River, to the north, on the border between Mauritania and Senegal, and the Geba River in Guinea-Bissau. Tan sediments can be seen spilling from the latter into the Atlantic Ocean.
