With 54 independent countries and a diverse topography including mountains, rain forests, arid deserts, vast savannas, rivers, the Great Lakes and a tropical coastline and ocean, there is little wonder Africa is a continent boasting tremendous biodiversity. Mammals have been recorded at over 1100 individual species, there are 2700 recorded bird species, 1600 reptile species and 969 recorded species of amphibians, of which an astonishing 954 are endemic to Africa. The continent is as much celebrated for its abundance of wildlife as its biodiversity. Famous for the world’s largest animal migrations including the 2 million strong herbivores that traverse the greater Serengeti ecosystem and the 10 million straw-coloured fruit bats that descend upon Kasanka National Park each year.
