How big is Africa

In our August post on the world in year 2100, we reported what the world is saying that the next is the African Century.

One factor is enormously growing population in Africa. Which is well known.

What is less known is the size of African continent and the question: How big is Africa?

Kai Krause has created the graphic above to showcase the true size of Africa, which is widely distorted on commonly seen maps of the world.

His image illustrated how many countries could comfortably fit inside Africa.
