What Is Africa Like?
Get ready for many fascinating adventures. Would you like to hike up a snowcapped mountain near the equator? Perhaps you'll want to travel by jeep on a safari (suh-fah-ree)—a trip to Africa to see wild animals. From the jeep, you might see lions, elephants, zebras, and giraffes. What about a bumpy camel ride across the largest sand desert in the world? Or maybe you'll sail down the Nile River to see ancient pyramids.
Where can you experience all these adventures? Visit the continent of Africa. There you will find many people that have different foods, customs, and traditions. It is a continent of over 700 languages.
From desert nomads traveling in the north to gold miners working in the south—welcome to the continent of Africa.
