Africa

Africa is probably the most exotic and unpredictable destination. It beckons with its wildness, chic resorts and with a great amount of killing things to do. So, let’s begin our trip to attractive Africa!
30.3 millions square kilometers make Africa the second world’s largest continent. It is washed by the Atlantic and Indian Oceans and by the waters of the Mediterranean and Red Seas. Africa includes 62 states 54 of which are fully independent. 1 billion of Africa’s inhabitants speak numerous languages and confess different religions.
The continent is considered the place of origin of humans, because exactly Africa is the place, where archeologists found the oldest hominids’ remains. Homo sapiens were the only one species that managed to survive and began to settle the Africa’s territory near 100 000 years ago. Africa saw many great cultures and civilizations, mighty Ancient Egypt, the Aksumite Empire and many other kingdoms. Wars, drought and famine alternated by unprecedented prosperity and fertility. Europeans began their invasion in Africa in the XV—XVI centuries. And the second half of the XIX century opened the period of hard times for the Africa’s natives – nearly whole continent was divided between the European states. Fast-moving decentralization began after the Second World War. 17 states received their independence in the year 1960. During the next few years almost all countries became fully sovereign.
Africa is the hottest continent. The biggest part of its territory is situated in hot climatic regions and the continent is crossed by the equator line. The weather conditions in different regions are characterized by subtropical, tropical, subequatorial and equatorial climates. Elephants and rhinos, monkeys and lions, hippopotamus and ostriches – where else can you find such a diverse fauna. And the African national parks greatly outstrip some European states in terms of their area.
