Why didn't Westerners permanently settle in Africa after wiping out the natives the same way they did in the Americas and Australia?

Why didn't Westerners permanently settle in Africa(and all other places of the world) after wiping out the natives the same way they did in the Americas and Australia?

Or is there any plan to do so in the future?

Just curious

    Africa has been in continuous contact with Europe since prehistory and was immune from European diseases. And Africans had worse diseases so Europeans were more affected. There was no empty land after 90% eradication. Just colonial exploitation forever after.

    Because they didn't wipe out the natives in Africa.  Nor could they.

    Malaria is one reason for limitations. The history of Africa includes a lot of colonization.

    Look up South Africa. The natives of the Americas and Australia have not been wiped out. They are still oppressed.

    Apparently you know very little about the continent of Africa.
