Without any human influence, nature has created extraordinary wonders—from majestic mountains and bubbling volcanoes to amazing plants and animals. These wonders are found across all the continents and oceans of this planet. In a tour of the seven greatest wonders of Africa, we'll encounter the Sahara, with its vast "seas of sand." We'll also find the world's longest river, the Nile. Many of Africa's most amazing wonders are animals. For instance, every year, millions of zebras and antelopes migrate across the Serengeti Plain in Kenya and Tanzania. The Virunga Mountains of central Africa provide a home for rare mountain gorillas. What other natural wonders does Africa hold? To find out, we'll explore magical islands, a snowcapped mountain, and a gigantic waterfall in fascinating detail.

This book earns a four out of five for elegant fonts and really spectacular pictures. I like how I can discuss a topic like Volcanoes in a class and then go the chapter in the book called Mount Kilimanjaro and read it aloud while showing off the pictures. This book shows much of the African climate and land structure as all the wonders are affected by formations in the earth; I think that is very important for me to point out to my future students.
