Africa is the second-largest continent of the planet and occupies 1/5 of the world's land. Its coast on the West is washed by the Atlantic Ocean, and the eastern coastal territory is in the power of the Indian Ocean and the Red Sea. The landscape on the African continent is very diverse. The fertile lands of the plains pass into the Atlas Mountains, which change into the sands of the Sahara. There are many islands in Africa, but only few are available for sale. But the marketed African islands are magnificent.
Climate of Africa
Most of Africa is characterized by high temperatures and is therefore considered the hottest continent. Average temperatures during the year on the northern coast of the Gulf of Guinea and in the Congo Basin are 25-26°C. Average summer temperatures are the highest in northern Sudan, in the Sahara (30-32°C; up to 38°C in the western part); in El Azizia (Libya) there was a maximum temperature on Earth – 58°C. The summer temperatures in subtropical latitudes range from 16 to 22°C. The difference between winter and summer is mainly in humidity. Summer is the rainy season almost everywhere, and winter is the rainless season. The exceptions are the equator, where rainfall occurs year-round, and the deserts where there is no rain in summer or winter. Completely different climatic conditions formed in the African mountains.
Foreign ownership in African countries
The laws governing private ownership are very different in African countries. In some places all lands belong to the government, registration processes are often complex, and ownership rights are not properly protected. In some places, a long-term lease of up to 99 years is possible. Some countries have liberalized the real estate market (South Africa, Botswana, Namibia, Morocco, Egypt). Ghana, Cameroon, Kenya, Rwanda, and Mauritius are also countries with free real estate markets. However, each country has its restrictions and conditions for foreign ownership. It can relate to land purposes, minimum bank contributions, etc.
