5 Photos Which Show The True Beauty of Africa

Africa is a beautiful, diverse continent and the oldest inhabited territory on Earth. While large parts of Africa lag in development, it’s also a continent which boasts a tremendous amount of fascinating beauty.


Africa is facing challenges such as armed conflict, climate change, and poverty every single day. These are all issues of the utmost importance, but we can’t forget about the beauty this continent houses. Africa has about 30 million square kilometers, including Africa’s islands and covers about six percent of the Earth’s total surface. It hosts a broad diversity of ethnicities, cultures, and languages spread across more than 50 countries. Humans and Mother Nature have shaped the continent, often resulting in unparalleled beauty.

Africa bestows a tremendous amount of different animal and plant species. Many types of predators roam the open ground and sky, while monkeys, snakes, and insects call the dense forests their home. Africa is home to many of the world's most interesting and fascinating animals, some of them endangered. 

Africa’s national parks are beautiful and diverse. They range from easily accessible to the remote and wild; from open plains to dense forests. Housing an uncountable amount of animal and plant species, these wonders of nature are a must see.

Built during a time when Africa housed the richest and most powerful civilizations in the world, such as the Egyptians. Many incredible human-made structures were made during a time span of many centuries.

Considered the poorest continent on the planet, Africa is the home to 54 nations with some of them flourishing through the years, with wealthy cities as a result.

Kilimanjaro is the highest point in Africa. This volcanic massif towers above surrounding plains, with its snowy peak looming over the savannah. The mountain is encircled by mountain forest.
