There is so much about Africa that many don’t know, even some of those who are from and live in Africa. Jumia Travel shares 4 things most people don’t know about Africa.
1. Africa is Home to One of the Oldest Universities in the World
The University of Timbuktu is one of the oldest universities in the world, established in 982 CE. After Timbuktu was occupied in the 1591 Battle of Tondibi, the University went into decline and many of the University’s scholars were killed or exiled.
2. The World’s Biggest Frog is Found in Equatorial Guinea and Cameroon
The world’s biggest frog, also called the Goliath Frog or Conraua Goliath, which can grow up to a foot long and weighs up to 8lb, has a small habitat range in Cameroon and Equatorial Guinea. The number of this species has dwindled over the years because of habitat destruction and its collection for food and pet trade. The frogs have now been classified as an ‘endangered species’.
