  • MALE NARRATOR: This is Earth.

  • Maybe you've heard of it.

  • I sure hope so

  • because you live on one of its seven continents.

  • (upbeat music)

  • Guess which continent is the hottest?

  • That's right. You guessed it.

  • Africa is home to the largest desert in the world,

  • The Sahara.

  • It's massive.

  • It's total area spans over 3 million square miles.

  • Its' the size of an entire country.

  • Seriously. It's almost the size of the United States.

  • But Africa isn't all sand and dunes.

  • Not by a long shot.

  • A little ways south of the Sahara

  • is the Congo Rainforest.

  • It's the second largest rainforest in the world,

  • and it's full of life.

  • Mammals, birds, amphibians,

  • and close to 10,000 species of plants.

  • (percussive music)

  • Let's take a quick trip to the African Savanna

  • to check out all the wildlife.

  • ♪ ♪

  • This tropical grassland covers

  • almost 65% of Africa.

  • And where there's grass, there are herbivores,

  • also known as plant eaters.

  • (elephant trumpets)

  • Zebras, elephants,

  • giraffes, and gazelles all graze off the land

  • in large herds for safety

  • because these herbivores live alongside predators.

  • The big cats aren't the only carnivores in town.

  • Crocodiles roam near the banks of the shore.

  • Hyenas and wild dogs

  • also roam this continent in search of their next meal.

  • Millions of people come to visit the Savanna every year

  • to see these amazing animals in their natural habitat.

  • Rain or shine.

  • (hippo growls)

  • Because the Savanna has only two seasons.

  • Wet...

  • and dry.

  • (all singing in native language)

  • It's not just wildlife that lives here.

  • There's another animal who shares

  • this beautiful continent.

  • Humans.

  • It's hard to believe that one of the oldest civilizations

  • on Earth began in Africa.

  • In Ancient Egypt to be exact--

  • dating back over 5,000 years.

  • ♪ ♪

  • Today, there are over 1 billion people

  • living on the continent of Africa

  • in 56 different countries,

  • speaking over 1,500 languages,

  • living in large cities

  • and small villages.

  • All are residents

  • of the second largest continent on Earth...
