Africa Continent and It's Countries:

Africa stands next only to Asia in size. The African continent is separated from Europe by the Mediterranean Sea and from Asia by the Red Sea. Victoria is the largest lake in Africa. One third part of the Africa continent is desert. The Sahara Desert of North Africa is the largest desert in the world. The highest temperature in the world has been recorded at Al-Aziziyah in Libya as 58°C. Africa is responsible for more than half the world’s gold production. More than 95% of the world’s diamond production also comes from Africa. Thus it leads the countries of the world in the gold and diamond alongwith platinum. The ostrich, a large, fast running bird is found in Kalahari desert. The Equator passes half - way through the continent, so that the northern half of Africa lies in the Northern Hemisphere while the Southern half is in the Southern Hemisphere Suez Canal separates Africa from Asia

Egypt is a part of the Great Sahara Desert which occupies nearly half the northern part of Africa. A very small part of Egypt lies in Asia. Nile rivet is in Egypt and the longest river of the world. Its source lies in Lake Victoria. Aswan dam is built on the Nile river. It is the Suez Canal which has put Egypt on the world map of international trade. This canal was cut across the isthmus which separates Africa and Asia. It now links the Mediterranean Sea with the Red Sea. The opening of the-canal in 1869 shortened the voyage from Bombay to London by more than 7,000 kilometres. Kahira is the capital of Egypt. Cotton is the cash crop of Egypt.
