Africa Directory

“For Africa to me... is more than a glamorous fact. It is a historical truth.
No man can know where he is going unless he knows exactly where
he has been and exactly how he arrived at his present place.”

~ Maya Angelou

Africa is a huge continent that is home to more than a billion people. With a geographical area covering more than 11 million square miles, it is the second largest continent on earth.

The ISOOSI Africa directory is a huge repository of knowledge regarding the continent and includes country categories, reference categories, business and service categories for the entire land mass.

The name Africa is credited to the Carthaginians who lived in North Africa during the Classical Period.

They called it Afri, after a native tribe who lived in the area before the Carthaginians appeared. The true meaning is still being debated, but this seems most likely.

Africa is widely regarded as the home of the human race.

It is from the center of Africa that it is believed the first homo sapiens walked the earth and spread from there across the world. The first human remains have been found to date around 600,000 BC. Other human-like remains date back even further, to up to 7 million BC.
