The Gambia is a country on the western coastline of West Africa. It constitutes the smallest country (by area) on the continent itself, although some island territories are smaller. The capital, Banjul, was known by the British as Bathurst. The territory was known as The Gambia because it stretches along both sides of the River Gambia. Apart from its own coastline, The Gambia is surrounded on three sides by Sénégal. Whereas Sénégal is French-speaking (as well, obviously, as the indigenous languages), The Gambia is English speaking. The wider population of Gambia is largely Muslim by religion.
