History of Africa

Africa is the second largest continent in the world, covering about 20 percent of the Earth’s land area, an area of 30, 221,532 square miles (11,668 599 square miles.)


It has 54 sovereign independent countries. The continent is bound to the north by the Mediterranean Sea, to the southeast by the Indian Ocean, to the east by the Atlantic Ocean and to the northeast by the Red Sea. The largest river in the world is in Africa, the Nile which contains 6,650km long (4,100 mi); it runs from Burundi to Egypt. Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania is world largest mountain at 19,340 ft. and Lake Assal in Djibouti is the second lowest point on Earth.


About 1 billion people live in Africa. The continent is very diverse, with every country having different unique cultures. Africa is one of the richest continents in the world but has been misunderstood by many as a land of poverty, corruption, war and farming. The continent is rich in natural resources such as oil, gold, diamond, timber and among others.


Among these countries, the largest is Algeria whilst the smallest is Seychelles. The famous luxurious beach holiday is in Morocco. Source: wikipedia and mapofworld.com
