There are 45 world heritage sites in Africa, listed under the Convention's natural criteria. Four of these are on the islands of Madagascar (2 sites) and the Seychelles (2 sites), with the rest spread across the continent from the Cape to Cairo. They cover every bio-geographical region and are arranged here according to each site's main ecological characteristics - so your journey of exploration can take you across the golden sands of the Sahara desert......to the continent's highest peaks.....through the Great Rift Valley.....and into the Strange Worlds of the Cape Floral Region and Madagascar. Discover each biome and the special places which constitute our global heritage by following the links below the map.
