It is bordered by Southernntobal to the north and the Indian Ocean to the east. Subsaharan Africa also has a long history dating back to when humans used to live in this region. The ancestors of all people living here today were hunter-gatherers who migrated south from northern Africa around 10,000 years ago or so. They eventually settled where we are today due to easy travel and access to food. From there, these people gradually spread throughout much of this continent. In recent decades, that spread has become even more amplified as new nations have been carved out from former parts of Asia and Europe. There are many sub-Saharan Africans who live in Angola, Burundi, Cameroon, Congo (Moto-dongo), Djibouti (Western Sahara), Egypt (Somalia), Ethiopia (Yemen), Ghana, India (Hindus), Kenya (Sudan), Niger (Angola) and Nigeria. These people make up about 15% of the total population of Sub Saharan Africa as a whole.
