The republic of Senegal is the most westerly situated state in Africa. It borders the North Atlantic Ocean, Mauritania, Mali, Guinea and Guinea-Bissau. The Gambia forms an enclave in southern Senegal. Its key natural resources are fish, phosphates and iron ore. Casamance forms the southern part of Senegal. Its location between Gambia and Guinea-Bissau makes it fairly isolated from northern Senegal. It has a more lush landscape than the rest of Senegal and its beaches are a major tourist attraction. Culturally it is more similar to Guinea than the rest of Senegal.
