Africa is a very diverse continent, with each country, or even each part of a country having its own unique culture.

While it is common for people in the West to refer to Africa as if it was a single country, one should remember the sheer size of the continent, and that Africa is not one country but 55 different countries, meaning that it is impossible to make generalisations about Africa as a whole.

Also due to the nature of colonial borders most African countries are anything but homogeneous (South Africa for example has 11 official languages) and culture, cuisine, language or even the dominant religion may change dramatically within a few hundred kilometers without ever crossing a border.

Africa contains the world's longest river—the 6,650 km-long (4,100+ mi) Nile River running from Burundi to Egypt—while the Congo River in the DRC is the second largest in terms of discharge as well as the deepest with a depth of over 230 m (750 ft) in some spots.

Tanzania's Mount Kilimanjaro is the world's tallest free-standing mountain at 5,890 m (19,340 ft).

Djibouti's Lake Assal is the second lowest point on Earth, the saltiest lake outside Antarctica, and one of the hottest places on Earth.

While the first activity most people associate with Africa is safaris, there are endless possibilities for adventure.

Africa has 55 sovereign countries—the most on any continent—and is the second largest continent in terms of both land area and population.

Africa is bounded by the Mediterranean Sea to the north, by the Atlantic Ocean to the west, by the Red Sea to the northeast, by the Gulf of Aden slightly further south, and by the Indian Ocean to the southeast.

Africa is a vast continent spanning over 8,000 km (5,000 mi) north-south and 7,500 km (4,800 mi) east-west (not including islands) and contains a wide array of peoples, religions, and cultures.

As the human race is believed by scientists to have originated in Africa before migrating out and spreading across the world, Africa can also be called the "Cradle of Humanity".
