Rain forests would flourish, then shrink; deserts would creep, then reduce. The powerful rivers and vast lakes like Lake Victoria that are Africa’s life blood would well up, dry up, then fill again. Climate is on the move again. Some areas are getting hotter, others drier and a few are getting wetter. In that ever shifting panorama humans and other species have evolved.
