Africa, the mysterious continent is a continent where life is believed to have begun on this earth. It has all kinds of biological environments; dense forests, tropical jungles, deserts, long rivers, big lakes, mountain ranges and open grasslands which are the home of the most diverse flora and fauna on our planet. There are many ancient tribes here who live in the deep jungles in the way they have been living for thousands of centuries. Many other tribes who were discovered by civilized man were exploited and their way of life disrupted. The natural beauty of Africa which includes vegetation, wild life and old civilizations, has been spoilt by the over indulgence and greed of man. There are two main reasons why Africa attracts people from all over the world travelling in Africa to experience the fantastic biodiversity of the continent and volunteer work for the betterment of the environment and the rural population of different countries in Africa.
