Africa is a huge continent full of diversity and large landscapes. It's the second largest in population and area, leaving Asia in first. It contains around %14 of the world's population. It is full of deserts, savannah plains, and rainforests. Africa is found south of Europe in between the Pacific and Atlantic seas. Africa has a population of 1,032,532,976 people as of 2011. The area of Africa is 11,668,599 sq mi. They have a GDP of $1,880 per capita as of 2011. The main languages are Afro-Asiatic, Nilo-Saharan, Niger-Congo A, Niger-Cong o B, Khoi-San, and Austonesian.

In Africa there is much to do, but I'm pretty sure the best thing to do is check out the Safari. Found in Tanzania, The Serengeti National Park is the best place to visit for a safari experience. The Serengeti has much wildlife. With more than 200,000 zebra's and even more Thomson's gazelle the Serengeti has become quite popular. You can also find elephants, giraffes, topi, kongoni, Grant's gezelle, lions, and leopards. This is defiantly a place you want to visit. Tanzania is located in southern eastern africa. The population of Tanzania is 43,188,000 people as of 2010. The area is 364,898 sq mi. They have a GDP of $1,515 per capita, and the main language is Swahili.


In Antananarivo Madagascar, you could visit an amazing rainforest in Andasibe-Mantadia National Park. The park is a few hours east of Antananarivo. In the park you can find many different lemur species, frogs, reptiles, birds, and other exotic animals. The trails are practically flat and in reasonable condition. For a more challenging course I would recommend Mantadia. Madagascar is home to 21,926,221 people as of 2011. Madagascar can be found east of the coast of Africa in the Indian ocean. It has an area of 226,221 sq mi. The GDP is $933 per capita. They mostly speak Malagasy and French.
