Interesting facts about Africa

Africa is the only continent large enough to be in both the northern temperate and southern temperate zones. The equator also runs through several countries in Africa

  1. While Europe and Africa may seem far apart, they’re actually separated by less than 9 miles of water at the Strait of Gibraltar, which separates Spain from Morocco.
  2. Despite being the second-largest continent in the world, Africa has the shortest coastline! This is due to the many bays that extend out of the coastline.
  3. Egypt receives only around one inch of rain every year. Thankfully, heavy rain in Ethiopia causes the Nile River to flood every summer, bringing much-needed water to Egypt’s plants and crops.
  4. Africa is home to the largest remaining populations of lions, elephants, rhinoceros, cheetahs, hyenas and leopards.
