"The World Heritage Convention provides an international platform for safeguarding cultural and natural heritage, and a showcase for the diversity of African heritage. From a vast deserts and forests with a variety of rare wildlife, to traces of past civilizations demonstrating human evolution and mastery of difficult terrain, the Africa region is a rich depository of natural and cultural history.
