Basically. Back in Pangea the continents were connected and those two mountain ranges which were originally one. But over the millions of years magma rised between the South American Plate and the African plate (basically right in the middle of the atlantic ocean between Africa and South America) and cooled, causing them to move away from each other, splitting the mountain range in two.
