The Gambia, more properly known as the Republic of The Gambia, is located in the western part of Africa and is often nicknamed as “The Smiling Coast” with the motto of the country being “Progress, Peace, Prosperity”. The Gambia is the smallest country in Africa, with as little as just under 11,000 square kilometers, and is surrounded from all sides by Senegal with the slight exception of its bordering Atlantic Ocean on the western coast. The name of the country stems from the river which runs through the middle of the country, called the Gambia River. As of 2013, the Gambia had a population of just below two million people.

The capital city of the Gambia is Banjul, which itself houses a population of four hundred thousand citizens as of 2013. However, that is the population of the entire urban area, which is its own eponymous administrative division, and the city itself holds only slightly above 31 thousand residents. The city features many attractions to locals and tourists alike, among them being the Gambian National Museum, the famous African Heritage Museum, as well as a mid-nineteenth century street market - the Albert Market. The city features a charity car rally every year, the Plymouth-Banjul Challenge, which resembles the route of the renowned Dakar Rally. The twist is that the competitors must use a cheap car, costing at most 100 British pounds.

When it comes to the climate of the Gambia, the country features a tropical one, characteristic for Western Africa. The temperatures vary throughout the year, with the hot season ranging from June till November, and the cold season from November till May. The hot season is also the rainy season in the Gambia, with not much rainfall being witnessed outside of it. Due to the small landmass of the Gambia, there is not much diversity to its terrain. The country is about 50 kilometers wide in its widest point, and more than 11% of the country’s land area is covered by water.
