Africa is the oldest inhabited territory on earth and is the only continent that stretches from northern to southern temperatures. Africa is surrounded by the Mediterranean Sea to the north, the Isthmus of Suez and Red Sea to the northeast, the Indian Ocean to the southeast, and the Atlantic Ocean to its west.

According to the United Nations geoscheme, Africa is divided into Northern Africa and Sub-Saharan Africa. Sub-Saharan Africa can be divided further into Eastern Africa, Middle Africa, Southern Africa, and Western Africa.
