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.

    I'd love to do a safari through Africa.

    I can not imagine the number of existing tribes in Africa ... I do not know the number of Indian tribes still existing in Brazil, Rs.

    Kisses, Tham

      Thanks for replying and sincerely, I don't know the actual tribes but with over 800 languages, I would guess the tribes are close to that...I will definitely check out the actual number and update you.....
      Welcome to Africa anytime

      Love, Mary
