Northern Africa

Last Updated: 5 March 2018
The landscape of Northern Africa is dominated by the Sahara Desert which covers large tracts of the land. Most farming is carried out along the Nile, the Mediterranean Sea and in the valleys of the Atlas Mountains, which separates Northern Africa from the rest of the continent.

Parts of Northern Africa have recently found deposits of crude oil and mined minerals, bringing the area new found prosperity. The seven countries that comprise Northern Africa stretch from the Sudan to Tunisia and produce around one third of the GDP of Africa.

This part of Africa has a long and ancient history and the remains of temples to ancient gods, pyramids, Roman amphitheaters and fortresses leave their tales across the desert where still the people travel on camels and live in tents.
