More often than not, our media reports on 'Africa' almost as one giant place -- maybe further 'nuanced' into desert and jungle.  From The Economist, here's a map of Africa to put its sheer size (if not its diversity) more into focus:




I've only visited a handful of countries in Africa -- all in the northern parts (Egypt, Morocco and Tunisia).  I hope to venture south one day.  What countries on that continent have y'all visited?  I imagine some of you have done safaris there?

Curious, what memories have you in Africa?  Where?  When?

How ironic. People tend to see the African continent as a single entity while many people claim the title of two entire continents for the single country of the US.

No apologies needed at all.  For my part, I was merely curious... hope that didn't come off as intrusive.

Size isn't everything !  :D
“Since the dawn of history the negro has owned the continent of Africa – rich beyond the dream of poet’s fancy, crunching acres of diamonds beneath his bare black feet. Yet he never picked one up from the dust until a white man showed to him its glittering light. His land swarmed with powerful and docile animals, yet he never dreamed a harness, cart, or sled. A hunter by necessity, he never made an axe, spear, or arrowhead worth preserving beyond the moment of its use. He lived as an ox, content to graze for an hour. In a land of stone and timber he never sawed a foot of lumber, carved a block, or built a house save of broken sticks and mud. With league on league of ocean strand and miles of inland seas, for four thousand years he watched their surface ripple under the wind, heard the thunder of the surf on his beach, the howl of the storm over his head, gazed on the dim blue horizon calling him to worlds that lie beyond, and yet he never dreamed a sail.”— Charles Darwin

I spent the better part of a month in Kenya, with a footstep into Tanzania.  We participated in an elephant population study as part of an EarthWatch group.  We also visited several Kenyan National Parks, observing many wild animals.  This all happened within 2 months of the 9/11 attacks in the US.  We were in Kenya when the small plane crashed in Conn, and the Kenyans we were with thought it might be further attacks.

My opinion is based on limited involvement with the citizens of Kenya, and solely on my experiences with that safari.  I liked the country well enough, but the poverty would become oppressing if I had to stay long.  I do not do well when I see so much suffering around me.

The animals were wonderful, and I never tired of seeing them roam in the wild.  I would day hike among them if it was possible to do so.

In 1976 I spent 2 weeks in Egypt.  It was a great experience.

My ULTIMATE trip would be to hike/jeep the Skeleton Coast and other areas of Namibia.  I want to see the dessert elephants and lions.

I lived in Morocco for a couple years as a very young boy when my dad was stationed there while in the Marines.  I had the pleasure of returning while I was in the Marines in the late 1980's.  I will say it has been about the most remarkable place I have ever been.

And that's the kind of experience that very, very few travelers can acquire!

Even in our own country where we share so much in common in terms of history, values, etc. -- growing up in different parts of our own country (e.g. Idaho or Massachusetts or Arkansas or California...) can be so vastly different!  One can only imagine the WIDE diversity in Africa where different regions share far less in terms of history / heritage!

Still boggles the mind how Africa 'swallows up' an entire USA and an entire China and India and still got space to spare for a bunch more European countries...

Interesting quote from Darwin!  Amazing that such a careful observor and clear, revolutionary thinker could be so wrong, apparently based on cultural bias.

As Jared Diamond has pointed out, with careful scientific analysis, one of the big problems with economic development in Africa 10-20,000 years ago was the lack of animals suited for domestication as a critical means of increasing human productivity, especially with ag.  Much the same problem as in North America and Australia.

The availble species were either too small for heavy plowing/hauling, or were not well adapted to domestication.  Zebra, gazzelle, and hippos do not lend themselves to the plow, and Cape Buffalo seem to have a mental problem!

I am going to pursue when and where Darwin was making that remark.

As I think I shared before, I lived in Ethiopia for 8 months as a Peace Corps Volunteer before being evacuated because of a stupid war between Ethiopia and Eritrea.
I then got to travel to Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania and Zanzibar, and Egypt.  
While it wasn't easy, I pretty much fell in love with Africa.  Horrible warts and all.  I was able to do a full Peace Corps tour in China a year later and I found living there much more difficult.  Maybe not materially but emotionally.
I did safaris in both Kenya and Tanzania.  My favorite park was NgoroNgoro Crater in Tanzania.  It is located in the caldera of an extinct volcano.
We hung out in Arusha, Tanzania for a couple of weeks.  It is the launching point for trips up Kili but we mainly just drank.
Ethiopia, while it doesn't have the wildlife of some of it's neighbors, is a very special place culturally.  Like I said, it wasn't always easy (it wasn't always hard) but it left a permanent, positive mark on me despite some of the things I saw.

Been to Africa twice - both in the Arab regions.  Marrakech in the early 70s (that was a real trip, so to speak) and Egypt in the early 90s which I rather enjoyed.  Last summer my wife spent a month in Ethiopia working at an orphanage our church sponsors and had a wonderful time as well as a bit of an eye opener.  She absolutely loved the people and can hardly wait to go back.  Just to underscore Ben's point, we were on the same continent but in totally different cultures and had totally different experiences, for  obvious reasons, I suppose.

That quote was not written by Charles Darwin — despite it being falsely attributed to him. Rather the quote is from a novel by a Ku Klux Klan novelist named Thomas Dixon, Jr. The name of the novel was The Clansman, published around 1905.

You can read the original passage from The Clansman at Project Gutenberg near the end of Book III, Chapter X, The Night Hawk.

If you find it easier, when you get to the Gutenberg page, simply search that page for the phrase, "dawn of history the negro has owned" and you'll find the origin of that quote. It is not from Darwin.
