Yes, the African continent is still in motion as are the other plates around the world. The earth’s crust is floating on the molten core and the continents are on the crust. There’s not a lot of free space around the plates, so they are bumping and sliding around each other.
Do you think in the next millions of years that another Pangaea may be formed? I am just curious as to what your opinions are. I don’t think it is impossible.
The statement in one answer that the crust is floating on the molten core is wrong. First, the mantle is what is beneath the crust, not the core. Second, it is not molten, and the crustal plates do not float on it. All the motion takes place as flow in the solid state.
