Africa contains countries such as Libya, Niger and Zimbabwe. The weather across most of Africa tends to be hot and dry with little rainfall. Some of the world’s most famous wildlife including lions and elephants inhabit this zone. These animals have perfectly adapted to handle Africa’s range of biomes.

Biomes are environments classified by weather and the adaptations of the living things that inhabit them. There are five biomes: aquatic, desert, tundra, forest and grasslands. Africa contains three of these: deserts, grasslands and forests. As a result, Africa has a diverse array of plants, animals and weather. Africa is also geographically diverse. The tallest peak is Mount Kilimanjaro with a summit of 19,340 feet, while the famously flat Serengeti Plains stretch on for 12,000 square miles.
