Africa is a continent that is synonymous with wilderness, vast spaces, glorious sunsets, shimmering heat, an extensive variety of wildlife, an amazing diversity of cultures and almost inexplicable natural beauty. Straddled by the Indian and Atlantic Oceans, Africa is the second largest continent in the world. It is the home to endless deserts, tropical rain forests, rugged mountains and fertile grasslands. Perhaps because this continent can boast of so much cultural and natural affluence, media personnel internationally continue to flock to Africa to illustrate the varieties of life that it has to offer the world.In addition to this hundred of languages are spoken across the continent. Many of these countries provide natural habitats to unique and endangered fauna and flora, while others still have massive herds that roam their huge plains. Photographs have been internationally exhibited illustrating these animals slowly traveling along these Great Plains with the sun setting in the background. However, the true beauty of this can only be experienced personally.
