___ Satellite View and Map of Africa

Searchable Map of Africa using Google Earth Data

Satellite View is showing Africa the world's second largest continent, 30,244,000 km² (11,700,000 mi²) including its adjacent islands, it covers about 20 percent of Earth's total land area.

Africa is bordered by the Mediterranean Sea in north, the Sinai Peninsula, the Red Sea and the Gulf of Aden in north east, the Indian Ocean in southeast, and the North- and South Atlantic Ocean in west. The continent includes the island country of Madagascar (fourth-largest island in the world) and some smaller archipelagoes. The distance from the continent's northern coast to South Africa's shore line is about 8,000 km (5,000 mi). The Equator (latitude 0 degrees) divides the continent into almost two equal parts of north and south.

Africa is also home to 14 percent of the world population, more than 3 times the population of the USA, but still lesser than the population of India.
Africa is divided in 54 countries, most of the borders which separates countries are a legacy of the century long colonization of the continent, drawn arbitrary without regards to cultural affiliations between the indigenous people.
