If you have NEVER been to Africa, when someone mentions "Africa" or you hear "Africa", what is the FIRST thing that comes into your mind?

People associate different regions/continent based on media, informational material, myths, stereotypes and such. The main idea of this discussion is to find out what people who never had "first hand experience" think about the continent. Thanks for your contribution.

    Savannah, giraffe, leopard and African tribes.

      Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
      The thought is on point...giraffe ( I love the long neck and cute small face) "fascinating animal....I fear leopard....and yes savannah and other great scenery....
