The world’s second largest and second most populated continent, Africa carries a name which was translated as “the land without a cloud” by the Greeks. In its 54 sovereign states and islands, Africa is scientifically known as the birthplace of humans and as home of the largest combination and density of wild animals. Whether you want to visit the grounds of one of the longest-lasting and earliest civilizations in Ancient Egypt or care to compare the differences between the largest country Sudan with the smallest, the Seychelles, the African continent is a mixture of color, undeniable appeal and immortal beauty.
