Africa From A to Z - M

Today's letter in our A to Z of Africa is M and we start with two images of Mangrove forests, one in Gambia in West Africa and the other in the island of Zanzibar, over 4,000 miles away off the coast of Tanzania.

The top image is of one of the many mangrove creeks in Gambia, while the second is in Jozani Chwaka Bay National Park, Zanzibar, Tanzania.

Staying in Tanzania, here is an image of what must surely be one of the world's ugliest bird's, the Maribou Stork, taken at the Ngorongo Crater.

Our final three images today are from Kenya, showing Mount Kenya and Masai Giraffes.

Mount Kenya
Mount Kenya is the highest mountain in Kenya and the second-highest in Africa, after Kilimanjaro. It is located in central Kenya, and although it is only about 16.5 kilometres (10.3 mi) south of the equator, you can clearly see the snow on its upper reaches.

Masai Giraffes
The Masai giraffe, also spelled Maasai giraffe is the largest subspecies of giraffe and the tallest land mammal. It has jagged spots on its body. It also has a short tassel of hair on its tail. The bony outgrowths of the male's skull superficially provide the appearance of up to five ossicones. The dominant male's spots tend to be darker in colour than those of other members of its herd.
