"I want to know - therefore I go."
The second-largest continent on Earth, Africa is also the second most populated continent after Asia. And most importantly, Africa is regarded as the birthplace of today's human species.
Even though natural resources abound on the continent, Africa is a poor and still developing region. Currently, there are 53 countries, but regime and name changes keep altering the political landscape of Africa. There are well over a thousand languages spoken on the continent.
