Technically, it probably should be as it fits the clue, but why are you typing that before trying Sahel, from which that term derives?

Quizmaster should make it tougher by asking for the southern tip, and official dividing point between the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans - Cape Agulhas.

For largest lakes, Lake Nyassa/Lake Niassa should be counted as it is the historic name for Lake Malawi

I don't! You wouldn't accept Ceylon for a modern day question about Sri Lanka. Think you should change it back Quiz master

I tried Kongo instead of Congo so I missed that one even though I knew it. Shouldn't that be accepted? It's practically the same word.

How about Kanada instead of Canada? See how that works? You just don't mispell a country's name and expect it to be accepted as an alternative.

There are many synonyms for "savannah", including veldt, grassland, plain, steppe, flatland, and such (Wikipedia). That last question seems just a bit broad, but it may just be me.

The typical one used for Africa is the savannah though.

The description might be broad, but in quiz you'd always look for a more specific answer if available. Steppe/veld/prairie is something different (no trees), grassland and plain are way too general.

"Site of a wildebeest migration" I read that as "site of a wild beast migration". After a little research I found that wildebeest is an animal which I call gnu. I guessed the right answer anyway.

I missed serengeti because I spelled it serengetti. I guess I was thinking of spaghetti. That might make an interesting fusion dish, though - African-style spaghetti called serenghetti.

I've only ever seen Serengeti used in reference to Tanzania. In Kenya, it's known as the Maasai Mara (with the Mara being the river that is the gift to all those nature shows - and to crocodiles - during the wildebeest migration).
