Maps of Africa

By

Maps of Africa are an invaluable tool when you're planning a trip. Africa is comprised of more than 50 countries spanning across deserts, mountains, forests and savannas. In fact Africa takes up a fifth of the earth's landmass. It's approximately 5000 miles from Tunisia to South Africa (north to south) and about 4,600 miles from east to west at its widest point.

Look at a political map of Africa and it's almost guaranteed that you'll see a few countries you may never have heard of, yet they are likely to be bigger than most countries in Europe. Check out this map of Africa and be surprised by the true size of the continent. Hear about East Africa and not sure what countries are included? Here's the UN map defining Africa's regions. Interested in how Africa was divided up during the "Scramble for Africa? Check out this map.
