Guinea Bissau

West African country of Guinea Bissau borders Senegal on north, Guinea-Conakry on south-east and Atlantic Ocean on west. Coastal plain savannah, with the highest point at 300 m above sea level, prevails in the east and north of the country and gradually transforms into tropical forest in the south. Big river estuaries with surrounding mangroves and an incredible archipelago of Bijagos islands remain almost intact due to prevailing absence of industry and mining.
