Africa's climate and elevation variations result in a great variety of landscapes and physical features. The Sahara Desert in the north extends from east to west across the continent whereas two of the world's greatest rivers — the Nile and the Congo — flow through Africa. The Great Rift Valley is a geological feature that extends from Jordan all the way south to Mozambique. The Kalahari Desert in the south, the Atlas Mountains in the northwest, and mountain ranges near the Great Rift Valley in the east all contribute to Africa's varied topography.
The largest city in Africa is Lagos, Nigeria; other leading African cities include Cairo, Johannesburg, Tunisia, and Kinshasa. Travelers from the USA may fly to Africa aboard British Airways, KLM, Egypt Air, or South African Airways. Two good sources for African news are the BBC's Africa News and the New York Times' Africa page.
