Africa is the second largest continent after Asia, covering about one-fifth of the total land surface of Earth. The continent is touched on the west by the Atlantic Ocean, on the north by the Mediterranean Sea, on the east by the Red Sea and the Indian Ocean, and on the south by both the Atlantic and Indian oceans which give it a great range of diverse beach landscapes. Off the coasts of Africa, several islands are among the most popular touristic destinations, such as Madagascar, one of the largest islands in the world, Seychelles, Mauritius, Cape Verde, and Zanzibar.read more

It displays a great diversity of biological resources that includes the lush green rainforests of Central Africa and the world-famous populations of the wildlife of the eastern and southern parts of the continent. Although Africa is the second largest continent, it contains only about 10 percent of the world’s population.
