The course of the road begins in Ogo , seven kilometers south of the city of Ourossogui , which is an important traffic junction in eastern Senegal, at a junction from the N 2 . The end of the N7 is in the southeast in Kédougou and the route until then is 457 kilometers long.
The road is a north-south connection through the poorly populated east of the country. It leads through the regions (from north to south) Matam , Tambacounda and Kédougou . The northern part of the route to Tambacounda has no asphalt-bound roadway. South of Tambacounda, the N7 runs through the Niokolo-Koba National Park .
From Tambacounda, the N7 is part of the newly developed southern variant of the transcontinental highway project Dakar-N'Djamena-Highway . Long-distance traffic can flow over the end of the N7 in the regional prefecture of Kédougou to the east via the departmental prefecture of Saraya, 61 km away, to the Malian border, where the construction of the new trunk road after 112 kilometers across a bridge over the border river Falémé at Koundam joins the Malian national road N24 .
