  1. Settlement by whom? When?

  2. Africa's original inhabitants evolved on this continent.

  3. I bet you mean the colonization and of the part south of the Sahara.
    The shortage of easy navigable river access inland and good harbors hindered the settlement by Europeans. They were frequently limited to posts near the sea shore. When they could get inland on the Congo for example the climate was unhealthy.
