East Africa

Known for its wild animals, such as the “big five” (elephant, buffalo, lion, leopard and black rhinoceros), the region is theorized as the birthplace of modern human beings.

The area had a wide array of colonists, including the British, French, Portuguese, Italians and Germans.

Its atypical equatorial climate has provided for quality farming, making it a key trading ground for centuries.
