Unfortunately the history of many African countries (after all, as the history of many European or Asian countries) has many dark spots, wars, hard times, epidemics, disasters, famine and even such terrible phenomenon of human history as genocide – the complete destruction of certain representatives of the people or ethnic group. The most terrible genocide in history was Adolf Hitler unleashed against the Jews, the results of it more than awful – 6 million Jews who lived in different European countries, were killed by the Nazis, died in concentration camps, were shot and tortured. It is a great tragedy, but in addition were genocide and smaller, for example the Armenian Genocide, held by the Turks in the early 20th century, or the terrible genocide of the people Cambodia, held bloodiest communist dictator Pol Pot against his own people in the 60s of last century. But there was a genocide, which few people know, and surprisingly, it was not long ago, some 20 years ago, in 1994, in an East African country – Rwanda.

African reality now is that you can only meet wildlife of Africa, in the national park. In large areas of the continents, wild animals were exterminated. They were killed for profit or just for fun. Now in many parts of continent – lions, leopards – a rare phenomenon. Almost every white rhino in Africa is known personally. Since the mid-19th century to the African continent rushed thousands of adventurers in pursuit of ivory. As a result, most of the elephant with large tusks became victim of the business. According to scientists, those animals that live on the African continent in the last century, is now remain ten percent. To prevent the complete destruction of these animals were created national parks.
