The Wolof People: largest tribe in Senegal

The Wolof People: largest tribe in Senegal also found in the Gambia & Mauritania

The Wolof people have a long and glorious history.
The Wolof people were first recorded in the 15th century. The Wolof, on the other hand, had long lived along West Africa's coasts, having moved west after the Ghana Empire collapsed four centuries

The Wolof people are a West African ethnic group located in northwestern Senegal, Gambia and the southwestern coast of Mauritania. In Senegal, Wolof is the largest ethnic group (~43.3 per cent), while elsewhere it is a minority. They refer to themselves as Wolof and speak the Wolof language in the western Atlantic branch of the Niger-Congo language family.
