It's close but I would probably pick South America because I think it has more natural beauty, e.g. Andes and Patagonia. Also aside from a few placed in Africa South America is easier to travel around. Africa Is culturally more interesting and has more large fauna.

Natural scenery: South America

Fauna: Africa

Cultural diversity: Africa

Ease of travel: South America

In Africa I'd visit South Africa, Tanzania, Ethiopia and Egypt, in South America Peru, Brazil, Argentina, Ecuador and Chile first.

Africa probably. It just seems more exotic.

South America:

Overall i have to go with South America.
Africa only wins 3 match ups, Egypt vs. Ecuador, Ethiopia vs. Venezuela and Madagascar vs. Suriname.

I think its a little unfair since i think we have more South American members than Africans and they are most likey to vote for their continent.

Ill be honest and say i am biased for South America because i can relate more to it and find it more interesting.

What i do want to learn more is about Africa. I already know a general sense of the culture and history of South America.

Im biased towards South America, having lived there, and would love to go back. I would like to visit several countries in Africa also though, but my vote is for South America.

Africa... because I live already in South America.
But only in more stable countries such as South Africa, Namibia or Botswana.

I voted south america, but I think that africa has more to offer and would take much longer to explore.

I have been to South America 3 times, so I would prefer to visit Africa. Several times I came close, then a war broke out and stopped me. Most recently, the civil war in Egypt. In two weeks I am going to South Africa and Swaziland (if something doesn't stop me). I am really excited!
