The Only Land In The World That No Country Has Claimed And Is In Africa

Many countries are always determined to safeguard their land and boundaries. Bir Tawil is the only piece of land that no nation in Africa has claimed. It is a 2,060 km2 area of land along the border between Egypt and Sudan which is inhabited and unclaimed by neither country. It is sometimes referred to as the Bir Tawil triangle despite the area's quadrilateral shape.

There is no basis for international law for either Sudan or Egypt to claim Bir Tawil. The main reason why the area is being neglected by the two countries is that it has no coastline, the soil does not support farming, and lacks surface water. Since the area is away from the Red Sea it has a very hot deserted climate. The diurnal temperature range throughout the region is large, varying from 18 to 20 °C.

Bir Tawil has no settled population but members of the Ababda and Bishari tribes pass through the region. It is also difficult to get to the land since the roads leading there goes past a large number of terrorists and Egyptian soldiers.
