A Continent Blessed Abundantly with Nature and Wildlife

The great African Continent stretches across the equator. It is not only the oldest land mass known to man, but is also believed to be the cradle of the human race. Africa is the second largest continent in the world after Asia and is home to the earliest and long lasting civilizations of the world like those of Ancient Egypt, Carthage and Alexandria.
The continent geographically boasts of gigantic mountains, the grassy savannas, tropical rainforests and three large deserts. They are the Sahara, the Kalahari and the Namib. The climate in Africa ranges from tropical to sub arctic on its highest peaks like Mount Kilimanjaro, Mount Kenya and Mount Mawenzi. It is a continent known for its diverse ecosystems and a variety of wild life population, flora and fauna.
This rich biodiversity of Africa sustains its tourism industry by organizing camps and tours of its excellent wild life parks which give us a glimpse of the famous lion, leopard, buffalo, elephant and rhino. These are referred to as the ‘Big Five’ among the safari leaders. The exotic safari parks in Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania offer an unparalleled wild life spectacle for adventure seekers. The luxury casino resort at Sun City in South Africa is also a favorite weekend destination for the rich and the famous.
The political history of Africa in the past has been chequered with great instability owing to colonialism and imperialism, mainly led by the Europeans in the late nineteenth century. The slave trade that led to the exportation of thousands of African slaves to New World colonies is truly one of the darkest chapters of human history. It was also known as the Dark Continent by the colonialists who mainly named it so because they were not totally aware of Africa’s rich political and cultural history but went by the color of the native’s skin. This view point resulted in social and racial segregation of the natives by the white community and it was only in 1994 that an end could be put to this apartheid.
Although Africa is considered as one of the richest nations in natural resources, it is still riddled with economic problems of poverty, malnutrition and underdevelopment. It has abundant reserves of diamonds, gold, petroleum, cobalt and coltan. Coltan is a dullish black metallic mineral taken out of the mines of Congo. A majority of the world’s software devices and mobile phones today use Coltan and there is a great demand for it. Ironically, one of the world’s richest ecological nations is fighting a losing battle against deadly viruses and diseases, shortage of food and lack of safe drinking water. There are several underlying factors to these issues, the most relevant being illiteracy, corrupt governments, inadequate central planning and inaccessibility to foreign capital. According to a Harvard University study, if not for poor governance, the continent could easily feed itself.
In the past decade, Africa has made great strides forward and we see a change in the attitude of the Free World in assisting the continent tackle its grave problems. However, much needs to be done to preserve the past glory and natural beauty of this great continent. This is the only continent where the leaves of its trees distinctly look up to the heavens.
