Why we like it

We go on about ‘location’ a lot but this really is something else. The resort sits on the water’s edge in the heart of Grand Baie, with all of the vibe of that amazing port town; clubs, restaurants, bars and shops bustle from morning to late at night. The resort is set in beautiful tropical gardens and reflects the Mauritian Creole charm in its architecture, furnishings and warmth of the staff. From the beach you look out across the busy turquoise-watered bay, filled with yachts and boats coming and going. This is a great 3-star hotel with everything you need and more; five different room categories with two privilege suites, two restaurants, bar, spa, kid’s club, full range of non-motorised water- and land-sports and two pools.

Africa

Africa is the second largest continent, approximately three times the size of the United States. The African continent measures 5,200 miles from north to south, and at its broadest point, is nearly as wide as it is long.

 

Interesting Africa Facts – People of Africa

The African continent has the second largest population in the world, at about one billion people.
Well over one thousand languages are spoken by the people of Africa. Some estimates put this number closer to two thousand.
The largest religion in Africa is Islam, followed by Christianity.
The African population is approximately 14.72% of the world’s population (as of 2009).
The oldest human remains ever discovered were found in Ethiopia. They are approximately 200,000 years old.

Interesting Africa Facts – Africa Landforms

Africa has the world’s largest desert, the Sahara, which is almost the size of the United States.
Victoria Falls is the largest waterfall in Africa; it is 355 feet high and one mile wide.
Mount Kilimanjaro is the highest mountain on the continent. It towers over 19,300 feet, which is so tall that glaciers can be found at its summit even though the mountain is near the equator.
Madagascar is the largest island in Africa and the fourth largest island in the world. It is in the Indian Ocean off the East coast of Africa.

Interesting Africa Facts – The continent

Africa is the second largest continent on earth, approximately 11.7 million square miles.
Africa straddles the equator and is the only continent to extend from the northern temperate zone to the southern temperate zone.
Africa is the hottest continent on earth.
Sudan is Africa’s largest country (968,000 square miles).

Climate

Africa is bordered by:

the Atlantic Ocean to the west
the Indian Ocean to the east
the Mediterranean to the north.
A variety of climate zones

Unsurprisingly, such a large land mass has a wide variety of climates:

Tropical rainforest – found particularly in the centre of the continent and also along the eastern coast of Madagascar.
Humid sub-tropical – found in the southwest.
Mediterranean – mostly on the northwest (Mediterranean) coast and in the southeast
Savannah – found to the north and south where it replaces the rain forest. There are distinct wet and dry seasons.
Steppe – away from the Equator, to the north and south, the savannah grades into drier steppe.
Desert – here there is little rainfall and wide differences between day and night temperatures. The Sahara in the north is the world’s largest desert (only three countries have a greater area – Russia, Canada and China). The Kalahari in southern Africa covers an area larger than France.
Highland – largely found in the east, below the Horn of Africa.
Marine – largely in the southeast.

Record temperatures

The highest temperature recorded anywhere in the world was at Al’Aziziya, Libya, which reached 57.8°C (136°F) on September 13, 1922. The lowest recorded temperature in Africa is -24°C (-11°F) at Ilfrane, Morocco, on February 11, 1935.

Highs and lows

Temperatures are highest in desert areas, particularly the Sahara. They are coolest across the south and in mountainous areas and plateaux highlands.

Rainfall varies dramatically across Africa. The northern half of the continent contains large areas of arid desert, where annual rainfall can be just 50mm. But in central areas of the continent, tropical rainforests can receive over 4,000mm each year (Scotland has an average of around 1,500mm).

As the climate warms, the Sahara desert is thought to be advancing south at a rate of 600 metres each year. Deforested areas are more at risk; where trees have been cleared for farm land or burning wood, bare earth is blown away and replaced by sand. This process is known as ‘desertification’.

Changing weather patterns

However, patterns of weather are changing, both locally and across the continent.

For example, droughts are becoming more common across the semi-arid Sahel region (which stretches across countries such as Senegal, Mauritania, Mali, Niger, Chad and Sudan). Scientists think a rise in water temperatures in the nearby Gulf of Guinea has shifted the flow of rain clouds southwards.
