Africa Review

Africa Review-Africa land

Africa is the  second largest continent in the world after Asia. With an area of ​​30, 221, 532 sq. Km, it accounts for 20.3% of the total land cover. The width of the continent is about 8000 km from the north to the south and its length is about 7400 km from the east to the west. Africa, with more than a billion inhabitants (according to 2005 statistics), has 61 countries in the world with about one-seventh of the world’s population.

The continent is bounded from the north to the Mediterranean Sea, from the north-east to the Suez Canal and the Red Sea, from the east to the Gulf of Aden, from the south east to the Indian Ocean, and from the west to the Atlantic Ocean.

Africa is located on either side of the equator, and covers several climatic zones; Africa is the only continent that stretches from the northern temperate to the southern temperate. Due to the lack of regular natural irrigation and irrigation, as well as to the absence of mass systems of ice or underground aquifers, there is no natural temperate effect on the climate, except near the coast. In the center of Africa (Near-Stowe), it’s about half a year of rainy weather that is hot and humid, creating beautiful forests that do not last more than a half-year, because after this rainy season, the hard and hard heat of the entire area is learned. And no beast has it, and so for some time, the forests become desert, dry, and grass (the other half is warm and dry, which generates a total of 2 seasons).

Although European speculation about the nature of the Ethiopian desert in South Africa dates back more than two thousand years ago, Africa is considered to be the oldest continent inhabited by humans.

Geography africa.

The largest of Africa is Algeria and the smallest region of the Seychelles is in the Indian Ocean. The smallest country is the Gambia. [3]

The northernmost point of Africa is the Guran Cape (in Tunisia), the southernmost point of the Agulhas Nouveau (in South Africa), the easternmost point of the Guadeloupe Mountain (in Somalia) and the westernmost tip of the Almadi (in the Cape of Greenland).

Africa’s climate from the tropical climate The tallest to the highest level fluctuates. In the northern region, there are mainly desert or wilderness areas, while the central or southern regions include warm (tropical) plains and very dense rainforest areas. However, there are two types of convergence in vegetation patterns such as shore and steppe.


To a large extent, due to the effects of colonialism, corrupt governments and tyranny, Africa is the poorest residential continent in the world. According to the United Nations Human Development Report in 2003, the 25 countries below the country table (from 151 to 175) were all African countries.

While fast growing in China and now in India, as well as the medium-term growth in Latin America, are millions (more than one) beyond life, Africa has had a declining trend in terms of trade, foreign investment, and per capita income. This poverty has expanded its effects, including low life expectancy, tension, and instability, which are factors contributing to the continent’s poverty.

Some areas, especially Botswana and South Africa, have experienced economic success, including the opening of the Johannesburg stock market. This is partly due to the wealth of their natural resources as the major producer of gold and diamonds, partly due to its proper legal system. South Africa has also achieved financial strength, multiple markets, skilled work, and the first infrastructure in most (parts of) its own country. Countries like Ghana, Kenya, Cameroon and Egypt are other African countries with comparable developments.

Nigeria is one of the world’s largest proven oil reserves and, while having one of the fastest growing economies in the world, has the most populations among African countries.

From 1995 to 2005, economic growth peaked at an average of 5% in 2005. But some countries have had more economic growth (+ 10%), especially Angola, Sudan and Equatorial Guinea, where the last three countries have started to extract their oil reserves recently.


The dispersion of African-Asian languages ​​extends from coast to southwest Africa. The languages ​​of Niger-Congo are divided to reflect the greatness of the languages ​​of the Bantu family.

According to most estimates, Africa has a total of over 1000 languages, some of which have been numbered more than two dozen (more African than European). Africa is the largest multilingual continent in the world; it’s not uncommon to find people who speak psychologically not only in different African languages ​​but also in one or two European languages.There are mainly four indigenous native languages ​​in Africa

African culture.

Africa’s culture is characterized  by a fully integrated social values ​​system, known through historical processes that supports its social organization. The most interesting feature of African culture is the almost identical nature of a pseudo-African language, in which non-verbal elements communicate in order to transform concepts and conveys feelings. Like the Southern Europeans, Africans are more discriminating, warm and committed. This pseudo-African language is rooted in a series of historical relationships and ancient spiritual beliefs that have flourished in generation, language, politics, as well as tragedies of slavery and colonialism in Africa.

African linguistic dialects and fundamental social breaths are easily recognizable and rooted in a strong and deeply rooted ancient philosophy that even in the face of widespread socio-political changes and the geopolitics resulting from the change in population diagrams, they require continuity and excellence.

The modern African culture is emerging through complex responses to Arab imperialism and European imperialism. At the beginning of the late 1990s, Africans increasingly wanted to reiterate their identity. In particular, in North Africa, refusing to accept Arabic or European tagging has led to a kind of overflow of demands to protect the languages ​​and indigenous culture of the Amazing in Morocco, Egypt, Algeria and Tunisia. The emergence (belief) of all-Africanism since the fall of apartheid has increased the demands for a resurgent sense of African identity. In South Africa, the intellectuals of the community of European descendants have increasingly become African identities for cultural reasons, geographically or racially. It is known that some people performed religious ceremonies to become members of the Zulu or other communities.


Africans offer a wide range of religious beliefs  , while Christianity and Islam are the most common. Approximately 46.3% of all Africans are Christians and 40.5% of them are Muslims. About 11.8% of Africans are mostly native African peoples. Few Africans are Hindus, or Believers of Judaism Jewish tradition. Examples of African-American Jews are Beta-Israel, Lamb, and Abidonia in eastern Uganda.

The indigenous religions of the sub-Saharan Africa revolve around the animistic and ancestral worship axes. Common threat to traditional belief systems is the division of the spiritual world into two “useful” and harmful parts. Useful Ghosts Ghosts are usually spirits that include ancestral spirits that help their descendants, and powerful spirits protecting all communities against natural disasters and attacks by enemies, while harmful spirits cover the souls of the victims, without the Funeral | Funeral burials are buried, and these ghosts by the violent (evil) spirit as the mediator (spiritual) | Mediators cause disease among their enemies. While the influence of these primitive forms of worship persists to have a profound effect, belief systems have evolved while interacting with other religions.

The formation of the ancient Egyptian territory in the third millennium BC is the first complex and well-known religious system in the continent. About 9th Century BC, Carthage (in modern Tunisia) was founded by the Phoenicians, and continued to become the main multinational center in which Goddess | Goddesses in the Neighborhood of Egypt, Ancient Rome Rome and the Etruscan civilization Territories – the city of Otruscan was worshiped. Today, many Jews live in North Africa, especially in Tunisia, Algeria and Morocco.

The Ethiopian Orthodox Church and the Eritrean Orthodox Church are officially dating back to the fourth century AD, and thus one of the first Christian-made churches | Christian in the whole world. Initially, Christian Orthodox Branch was prevalent in modern Sudan and other neighboring regions. But, after the spread of Islam, it grew and was limited to the lands of the highlands.

Islam conquered North Africa between 640 and 710 by Muslims entering the continent, which began in Egypt. They set up maritime trade on the East African coast, the cities of Meghadishu, Nimand, Membasa, Kilwa, and Cephal, and crossed the Sahara Desert within Africa – especially following the paths for Muslim trade. Muslims were also among the Asian peoples who later settled in Africa under the British rule.

Many sub-Saharan Africans converted to Western European forms of colonialism during the colonial period. In the late decades of the twentieth century, various sects of the fascist Christianity movement grew rapidly. A number of African Catholic bishops, even as probable Pope nominees Papi was in 2005. Apparently, African Christians are more socially conservative than their own religions in most of the industrialized world, which, in recent times, have tensions between the religious sect | Sections such as the Anglican Union and Methodism .

contemporary history

African blacks have been deployed well before the White House began settling in Cape Town in 1652 in the territory now South Africa. The overcoming of local communities in the late nineteenth century was not possible. Britain acquired the Cape in 1814, annexed slavery in 1843 and the Natal area in 1833. The Boers (or Afrikaans), from the proletarian descent of the Dutch and French, migrated to distant districts during the Great Migration (1835 to 1837), and established the Transnational Republics and the Free State of Orenjy. After the discovery of diamonds in 1867 and gold in 1886, Boerres (Africans) also led by Paul Grover (1825-1914), President Transvall, resisted Britain’s attempt to annex their republics. In these republics, British nomads were deprived of political rights. This caused the Buerard war between 1899 and 11902. The Afrikaans, though lost the war, but when the Union of South Africa was formed 1910 per year, they were politically dominant. The creation of the African National Congress (ANC) in 1912 was a protest against the supremacy of the White House, and in the 1920s the black protest was common in the industries. South Africa united in the United Kingdom entered the United Kingdom into a United united Great Britain and became Germany after a brief battle between 1914 and 1915 (southwest Namibia). After the war, the land was also managed by South Africa. South Africa, under the leadership of General and Jan Christiane Smats in the years 1870 to 1950; the prime minister from 1919 to 1924 and from 1939 to 1948, despite the strong opposition of the Afrikaners, joined the Allies during the Second World War. After the arrival of the National Party (Afrikaner) in 1948, ethnic discrimination increased in line with apartheid policies (separate development), depriving blacks of civil rights, segregation of facilities and residential areas in terms of race, and black politics into birthdays Under the supervision of (Bantuan). Negro opposition was suppressed following the massacre of protesters in Sharpeville, and the Hendrik and Rouder government, which banned the African congress from 1958 to 1966, became prime minister. International pressure against apartheid has risen. In 1961, South Africa abandoned the Commonwealth. Most members of the community continue to insist on economic sanctions against South Africa. In 1966, the United Nations abolished the price of South Africa in Southwest Africa (Namibia), but South Africa continued to impede its independence. In the 1970s and 1980s, the oppression of the blacks was revived, and with the strikes, the uprising of Soweto in 1976, sabotage and the emergence of the black consciousness movement were voiced. South African soldiers intervened against the Marxist-Leninist government in the Angolan civil war in 1981 and were active in Namibia against Swaziland’s black nationalist guerrillas. P. B.B. (born 1916; Prime Minister from 1978 to 1984; and President from 1984 to 1989) granted political rights to colored and Indian communities and implemented minor amendments to the black people. However, in 1986, against the backdrop of continued unrest, Bhutta declared a state of emergency, under which the press was severely censored, the gatherings of many organizations were banned, and the number of political prisoners, including children, rose sharply. His successor, F. D. Kellerk, released some of the members of the National Congress of African Nationals and agreed with the United Nations-led election in Namibia to gain independence in that country. In 1990, Ducklerc abolished the ban on the African National Congress and released its imprisoned leader Nelson Mandela (born 1918). Between 1990 and 1991, negotiations between the government and the black leaders led to the abolition of the legal structure of apartheid. The clash between fans of the African National Congress and Incatta in the black settlements has been a source of concern. Negotiations on the new multi-racial constitution continued irregularly, but the right-wing White Movement was against the division of power in developing countries.

Conserve Africa Wildlife

Africa Wildlife Conservation

The continent of Africa is a magical place, home to plants and animals that most of us have only read about in books and never seen. From lions to cheetahs to elephants, the wildlife here is beyond the imagination, yet without dedicated intervention it will all soon be gone. Due to the combined effects of pollution, tree logging, hunting and poaching, and agricultural and industrial development, the wildlife on this continent is dying and at an alarmingly fast rate. Over the past three generations the population of the African Elephant has decreased by more than 50%, the black Rhinoceros by more than 80%, and many other species have all but vanished.

Since people have become aware of the devastation facing this continent and others, Wildlife Conservation has become an increasingly visible cause. Many groups have set forth to reverse the negative effects humans have brought upon the wildlife of this planet but they rely on your help and continued support in order to succeed.

Below are some of the conservation efforts currently taking place in Africa to help stay the devastation that has been wreaked on the wildlife population of this continent.

Rehabilitation of Wilderness areas
Many species of plant and animal find themselves on the endangered list mainly due to the continued destruction of their natural habitat. Whether from the effects of logging, urban development, industrial pollution or other factors, many animals find their homes destroyed and their food source severely depleted. This phenomenon has led a number of groups to work to rehabilitate the wilderness areas that house these animals. Projects include tree planting, which helps to replenish lost food and shelter sources in the area, as well as injured animal rescue programs which administer appropriate medical attention to injured animals before re-releasing them into the wild.

Animal Orphanages
Animal Orphanage programs take in baby animals whose parents have either abandoned them or been killed by poachers, hunters or other causes. These programs require the expertise of veterinarians and other animal experts, who help to make sure that these young animals remain healthy in their temporary habitat, yet also remain wild enough to -be released back into the wild once ready. These programs help to maintain the population of numerous animal species, many of them endangered or on the brink of extinction. It is important that these animals do not form too close an attachment to humans, in order to ensure their safety from hunters and poachers once they are eventually released. Some programs encourage donors to sponsor an animal during its stay to help pay for its food and medical expenses before it can be released back into the wild.

Adopt-a-scout programs
The many wildlife areas in Africa each require scouts (the equivalent to our park rangers) in order to make sure that the animals and surrounding areas remain healthy and free of illegal activities such as poaching. However, there is little funding available for wilderness scouts in Africa. Thus said, some organizations have created programs in which people can sponsor a scout to help pay for their food, equipment and daily expenses, so that they can properly protect the African wildlife.

Many people dream of being able to take part in an African Safari and see the beautiful wildlife only found in Africa. However, imagine getting to go on a dream safari and at the same time knowing that your money will go directly to helping conserve the very wildlife you are observing around you. This is called ecotourism, meaning “tourism to exotic or threatened ecosystems to observe wildlife or to help preserve nature” (source: Eco-tours are offered by a number of non-profit organizations dedicated to raising money to help save threatened African wildlife.
