As what’s stated in the picture, it’s quite easy to underestimate the size of Africa. Personally I’m rather surprised to see how many large countries Africa can comfortably hold –

It shows how Africa (30,3 million km²) is larger than the combination of China (9,6 million km²), the US (9,4 million km²), Western Europe (4,9 million km²), India (3,2 million km²) and Argentina (2,8 million km²), three Scandinavian countries and the British Isles (map gives no surface for these last two areas; I’ve rounded out the figures for the aforementioned regions).
