Africa Overview

Africa's biodiversity, which ranges from the Sahara desert to tropical jungle, from snow-capped volcanic Mount Kilimanjaro to the beaches of East and West Africa, may be its greatest asset. There is the excitement of stalking big game in the African bush, the thrill of whitewater rafting through the gorges below Victoria Falls, and the awe of seeing the Egyptian pyramids at sunrise. Ecotourism provides leisure complexes that take advantage of game parks, golf courses, beaches and beautiful scenery. Adrenalin junkies can raft the rapids on some of the world's biggest rivers, plunge from the highest bungee jump, or climb a snow-capped volcanic peak on the equator.

Africa – An Adventure of a Lifetime

Africa has 54 sovereign countries—the most on any continent—and is the second largest continent in terms of both land area and population. Africa is bounded by the Mediterranean Sea to the north, by the Atlantic Ocean to the west, by the Red Sea to the northeast, and by the Indian Ocean to the southeast. Africa is a vast continent spanning over 5,000 mile north to south and 4,800 miles east to west (not including islands) and contains a wide array of peoples, skin colours, religions, and cultures.
