Matam Region

Matam is a region of Senegal (regional capitals have the same name as their respective regions).

It is a stark, flat, arid place bounded on the north by the Sénégal River and the south by the Sahelian plain studded with baobab trees. Matam is populated by the tall Pulaar-speaking Toucouleur people who brought Islam to Senegal in the 11th century and gave us the music of Baaba Maal in the 21st century.


Matam is traversed by the northwesterly line of equal latitude and longitude.
