Guinea is a country on the west coast of Africa. With an area of 245,857 km² it is about the size of the United Kingdom or slightly smaller than the U.S. state of Oregon. The country is bordered by Côte d'Ivoire (Ivory Coast), Guinea-Bissau, Liberia, Mali, Senegal, and Sierra Leone.
Guinea has a population of 10.6 million people (in 2015); capital city is Conakry; spoken languages are French (official), Fulani (Fula), Malinke, and others.
Main Geographical Features of Guinea
Guinea is a humid tropical country with four main geographic regions, each having its distinct human, geographic, and climatic characteristics:
There are the Basse Coté lowlands of Maritime Guinea (La Guinée Maritime) also known as the Guinean forest-savanna mosaic, the alluvial coastal plains are populated mainly by Susu (Soussous) people.
The Fouta Djallon of Mid-Guinea (La Moyenne-Guinée) is the highland region in the center of the country, it is populated mostly by Fulas (Fulbe or Peul people). Many of the major West African rivers begin in this area: the Niger, the Gambia (Gambie), and Senegal Rivers, as well as a number of other rivers.
The Sahelian Haute-Guinea, the Eastern Savannah to the northeast is populated by Malinke people, and the forested mountainous jungle regions of Forested Guinea (Guinée forestière) in the southeast, where several ethnic groups live.
The highest elevation in Guinea is Mount Nimba with 1,752 m (5,748 ft.) in the Nimba Massif, which forms a small portion of the border with Côte d'Ivoire (Ivory Coast). The mountain is located in the south eastern corner of the country, on the border with Côte d'Ivoire, not far from the province capital Nzérékoré. The Mount Nimba Strict Nature Reserve is a protected area and a UNESCO World Heritage Site in both Guinea and Côte d'Ivoire.
