Africa, one of the world’s most biologically varied continents, contains vast swaths of unspoiled wilderness and landscapes teeming with abundant species and fascinating civilizations. Africa is a region of splendor with some incredible natural treasures. Africa is home to the world’s greatest collection of predators and the world’s largest free-roaming wild animals. The Big 7: lion, leopard, crocodile, elephant, rhinoceros, hippopotamus, and lowland gorilla all live on the African continent.
Mount Kilimanjaro: Mount Kilimanjaro is Africa’s tallest peak, reaching a height of around 16,000 feet above sea level. The Kilimanjaro National Park in Tanzania is named after this dormant volcano in Tanzania. Climbers from all over the world come to the park to scale the peak. Climbers are encouraged to follow the established hiking routes.
Ngorongoro Crater: The Ngorongoro Conservation Area, another of Africa’s Seven Wonders, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is the world’s largest dormant, undamaged volcanic caldera, located west of Arusha in Tanzania. The crater is believed to have been formed two to three million years ago as a large volcano burst and collapsed on itself, according to records.
Okavango Delta: The Okavango Delta, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is a massive marshy interior delta in the Kalahari basin’s center area. The fact that the river’s water never reaches the ocean and evaporates completely during the dry season is one of the delta’s most amazing characteristics. On the delta’s eastern side lies the well-known Moremi Game Reserve. The hippopotamus, South African cheetah, African bush elephant, and lion, among other animals, may be found in this region.
Red Sea Reef: The Red Sea Reef is an inlet of saltwater in the Indian Ocean that lies between Asia and Africa. The Red Sea is connected to the ocean through the Gulf of Aden and the Bab el Mandeb strait. The abundance of corals and marine life in the water is well-known. The water is home to over 1,000 types of crustaceans, around 200 hard and soft coral species, and over 10% of the fish in the Red Sea are unique and will not be found elsewhere.
Sahara Desert: After the Antarctic and the Arctic, it is the world’s third-biggest desert. The Sahara, being one of the world’s hottest deserts, is enormous, about equaling the size of the United States. Many species of fox, addax, Saharan cheetah, monitor lizard, sand vipers, and desert crocodiles live in the desert, which spans much of North Africa. The desert is home to various roaming African tribes, as well as wildlife and nomads.
Serengeti Migration: The Maasai Mara, also known as the Serengeti in Kenya, is an African habitat that stretches from northern Tanzania to south-western Kenya. The world’s greatest terrestrial animal migration takes place here. The area is separated into many game reserves, as well as Tanzania’s famed Serengeti National Park, which is home to lions and other big creatures. The area is also noted for being home to over 500 different bird species.
