You'll find vast savannah plains and great Saharan dunes.

A landscape of unforgettable sweeping grandeur and delight
The continent's patchwork of peoples carve out homes in Equatorial jungles, traditional villages, modern cities or continue their ageless nomadic customs. Often Africa is presented as a cultural conglomerate but it's strikingly varied. There are 54 nations here.
The big game really is big – it matches the grandeur of the landscape it traverses, blends with and hunts in. Kenya is the hotspot for tracking the Big Five.
