Africa is the world’s second-largest and second-most-populous continent, Africa is the largest of the three great southward projections from the largest landmass of the Earth. Separated from Europe by the Mediterranean Sea, it is joined to Asia at its northeast extremity by the Isthmus of Suez (transected by the Suez Canal), 163 km (101 mi) wide. (Geopolitically, Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula east of the Suez Canal is often considered part of Africa, as well.)
Africa boasts perhaps the world’s largest combination of density and “range of freedom” of wild animal populations and diversity, with wild populations of large carnivores (such as lions, hyenas, and cheetahs, Mountain Gorillas , Eastern lowland gorillas) and herbivores (such as buffalo, elephants, camels, and giraffes) ranging freely on primarily open non-private plains. It is also home to a variety of “jungle” animals including snakes and primates and aquatic life such as crocodiles and amphibians. In addition, Africa has the largest number of mega fauna species, as it was least affected by the extinction of the Pleistocene mega fauna and its among the reasons why extreme adventure holidays are popular in Africa to visit the Mountain Gorillas , Wildlife & Nature in Rwanda, Uganda, Tanzania, Kenya and Congo as recommended by Primate Safaris Rwanda..
Africa has over 3,000 protected areas, with 198 marine protected areas, 50 biosphere reserves, and 80 wetlands reserves. Significant habitat destruction, increases in human population and poaching are reducing Africa’s biological diversity and arable land. Human encroachment, civil unrest and the introduction of non-native species threaten biodiversity in Africa. its why we recommend you visit the african Apes before their extinction
