이 대륙에 속한 나라들
Most people outside the continent divide Africa into two regions; the Arabic-speaking North Africa, and everywhere else as Sub-Saharan Africa. However, Africa is a very diverse continent, and this division represents a somewhat shallow understanding of Africa.
|북아프리카 (Algeria, Egypt, Libya, Morocco, Tunisia, Western Sahara)
The nations that rim the southern shores of the Mediterranean Sea and the northwestern Atlantic coast of Africa.
|사헬 (Chad, Mali, Mauritania, Niger, Sudan)
The desert and savannah nations that span the Sahel and southern half of the Sahara Desert.
|서아프리카 (Benin, Burkina Faso, Cape Verde, Cote d'Ivoire, Gambia, Ghana, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Liberia, Nigeria, Senegal, Sierra Leone, Togo)
The tropical Atlantic coastal nations. Most of these countries have a Christian South that was more directly affected by European colonisation and a Muslim North, that was more influenced by Arabic culture.
|중앙아프리카 (Angola, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Republic of the Congo, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Equatorial Guinea, Gabon, São Tomé and Príncipe, South Sudan)
The heart of Africa.
|동아프리카 (Burundi, Comoros, Djibouti, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Kenya, Madagascar, Mauritius, Rwanda, Seychelles, Somalia, Somaliland, Tanzania, Uganda)
The region that was the wellspring of most early hominids, comprising nations that border the Red Sea and the Indian Ocean, plus a few neighbouring landlocked nations.
|남아프리카 (Botswana, Lesotho, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa, Swaziland, Zambia, Zimbabwe)
Nations at and near Africa's southern tip. Likely the birthplace of modern Homo sapiens as well as the part of Sub-Saharan Africa where European influence is most visible today. Noted for an incredible diversity of plant life, as well as the Namib desert, one of the driest places on earth other than the Atacama or Antarctica.
