  It is very nice
Africa is a great continent. The very north and the very south are quite rich, big areas in the central part are poor and sometimes dangerous. I have great experience from Egypt, Kenya, South Africa (but it is quite a good idea to go to natural parks there and not to the cities which are not very sa
  Nejen sever
Z Česka se jezdí hlavně do Egypta a do Tuniska k moři (kdo by někdy neviděl akci Hurgáda za 8000 Kč?), ale určitě stojí za to i jiná místa Afriky. Egypt s poznávacím zájezdem do Káhiry, Luxoru, Abú Simbelu, národní parky Jižní Afriky, Keňa...

What Others say

Africa is the world's second-largest and second most-populous continent, after Asia. At about 30.2 million km² (11.7 million sq mi) including adjacent islands, it covers 6% of the Earth's total surface area and 20.4% of the total land area. With about 922 million people (as of 2005) in 61 territories, it accounts for about 14.2% of the world's human population. The continent is surrounded by the Mediterranean Sea to the north, the Suez Canal and the Red Sea to the northeast, the Indian Ocean to the southeast, and the Atlantic Ocean to the west. There are 46 countries including Madagascar, and 53 including all the island groups. Africa, particularly central eastern Africa, is widely regarded within the scientific community to be the origin of humans and the Hominidae tree (great apes), as evidenced by the discovery of the earliest hominids and their possible ancestors, as well as later ones that have been dated to around seven million years ago – including Sahelanthropus tchadensis, Australopithecus africanus, A. afarensis, Homo erectus, H. habilis and H. ergaster – with the earliest Homo sapiens (human) found in Ethiopia being dated to ca. 200,000 years ago. Africa straddles the equator and encompasses numerous climate areas; it is the only continent to stretch from the northern temperate to southern temperate zones. Because of the lack of natural regular precipitation and irrigation as well as glaciers or mountain aquifer systems, there is no natural moderating effect on the climate except near the coasts.
