Africa: travel & holiday
Africa is the second largest continent after Asia the largest continent in the world. It covers about 30,244,050 square kilometers (mainland and islands combined), which is 20.3% of the total land surface of the earth. There are more than 800 million people - about one-seventh of the world living here. The name Africa was in antiquity first reserved for the area of present-day Tunisia. Later, the entire coastal strip was called Africa and in the time of discovery was the continent thus indicated.
The name Africa would be derived from the Phoenician word afrid. But others argue that the name Africa can be traced to the Amazigh Essential goddess Ifri (which means cave, singular Ifri). This goddess was later taken over by the Romans.
Almost the whole of Africa belongs to the Third World.
