Africa is the second largest continent on planet Earth. The Red Sea and the Mediterranean Sea separate this compact land mass from the Asia and Europe, respectively. Africa's landscape is characterized by basins, highlands, and extensive uplands and mountain ridges. The Sahara desert spreads over much of northern Africa, rainforest covers much of central Africa, and temperate highlands occupy much of southern Africa. The African continent's inhabitants account for about fifteen percent of the world's population.
