We combined Senegal with Gambia in this edition, but as two completely separate maps - Senegal on one side, and Gambia on the other. During our recent research trip to the two countries, it became obvious to us that the two countries are so inter-linked that it doesn't make sense to show one without the other.
This new map has two covers, so the map can be displayed Gambia side outwards, or Senegal side outwards. Both maps benefit from improved availability of information, thanks to our visit. Frankly, neither country appears to have progressed significantly over the past 40 years since my first visit, but I'm a cynic.
The main east-west highways in both countries are being paved (again) by European countries providing foreign aid (again). No road maintenance camps are being constructed, however. Both countries have created resort communities for oceanside tourism development, which are shown on the map, as well as all road improvement projects we could verify. Both countries are full of smiling people and are friendly to visitors, but Gambia has police/military check-points every 10 kms or so.
We can laminate this map, which will allow you to draw on it in whiteboard marker or apply map dots to locations of interest without permanently marking the map. The lamination also makes the map very durable and protects against tears and stains.
To laminate this map we have taken the folded map and flattened it out before encapsulating it in high-quality 80-micron laminate, so please be aware that there will still be slight fold lines visible.
