Explore and Understand Africa Through Her Food and Culture




There are regions in Africa; North Africa, South Africa, West Africa, East Africa, Central Africa.

Africa’s geography is as diverse as its food. From the Sahara and Kalahari deserts, tropical regions, subarctic snow-capped volcanic Mount Kilimanjaro, to savannas, plains, and rain-forests. 

The range of climate and soil conditions in Africa has created a diversity of vegetables, fruits, wild and domesticated animals. Africa rests on both sides of the equator and is the only continent to extend from the northern temperate to southern temperate zones. 

The continent is surrounded by the Mediterranean Sea to the north, the Suez Canal and the Red Sea to the northeast, the Indian Ocean to the southeast, and the Atlantic Ocean to the west. Liberia is Africa's oldest Republic since July 1847 and in July 2012 South Sudan became the newest African Republic.
