Image Caption: South Africa. Uncommonly fine northward view of the folded mountain ranges east of Cape Town in southernmost Africa. From about 230 through 190 million years ago Africa was part of the southern supercontinent of Gondwana. The ranges here formed in Early Jurassic time (~190 million years ago), when the present continents of Africa, South America, Australia and Antarctica and the Indian subcontinent crashed together to create the giant landmass.
