Africa contains one-fifth of the earth’s surface with over 50 countries, each with its own traditions, tribal groups, dialects, landscapes and wildlife. It has a wealth of natural and cultural treasures to delight even the most discerning travelers. Africa’s most dramatic geographical features are the Nile River and Sahara desert and Mount Kilimanjaro. Of equal fascination are the many animal species that inhabit the widely-varied terrain. They include lions, rhinos, hippos, camels, gorillas, cape buffalo, leopards, elephants, cheetahs, zebras, baboons, hyenas, giraffes, meerkats, monkeys and an array of colorful birds. Such magnificent wildlife is the primary reason for many travelers to visit this extraordinary destination.
