Flora And Fauna
With waterfalls and mountains, deserts and rainforests, wetlands and savannah, Africa is a continent of true splendour. Beneath its wild and ancient landscapes lie resources literally as rich as diamonds, copper and coltan, and its wildlife is as diverse as its cultures.
Africa harbors fauna and flora as magnificent as its terrains, including large mammals that occupy huge expanses of land. Mountain gorillas, pygmy hippos, mpingo trees (whose timber is prized for musical instruments) and the desperately rare northern white rhino are just some of the species symbolic of this region.
