East Africa and its close relationship to Arabia

Arabians were the first African slave traders and the merchants who bought and exported African ivory and gold.

Arabians brought their religion to East and to West Africa. That was Islam.

Swahili is a language that comprises Arabic, African tribal vocab and German. It is the common language of East Africa and a lot of the world.

The camel is a work animal that is important to both regions.
