Zebras thunder across the savanna. Contemporary cultures embrace ages-old rituals. Hand-hewn riches evoke ancient empires. Nations struggle to survive and develop. In Africa, there's always a story to tell. And since 1888, National Geographic has returned time and again to explore this wondrously diverse continent. In this archive, you'll find a listing—chronological and by country—that links you to full-text articles on Africa, published on National Geographic Online since our website launched in September 2000. Discover the allure of Africa's people, wildlife, landscapes, and history. Discover Africa.
