The Republic of Gambia, known as The Gambia or Gambia, is a country of West Africa, the smallest country of mainland Africa. It is located around the river Gambia; its area is 20.500 square kilometers with a population of 1.700.000 inhabitants. The Gambia was granted independence from the United Kingdom in 1965 and joined the Commonwealth. Banjul is the capital, but the largest conurbation is Senekunda. The Gambia has common roots with many of the West African nations in the slave trade which was the key factor in keeping a colony in the Gambia River first by the Portuguese and then by the British.
