Why you should visit Africa 2

Do you find happiness and healing in natural things? Do you get inspiration from your natural environment? Do you like hanging out with the wild and getting blessed with views of a beautiful land? Maybe you love to watch the young deer gallivant through the Veldt. Then a visit to Africa will do.

I, for instance find inspiration for my writing when I travel to the countryside. The tranquility, people, scenario and diversity is enough inspiration and will surely thrill you! There’s always something to write about in Africa.

If you go for Safari, take a camera with you. Take many images or videos as you can. Because whatever you see is not something seen on a regular day! Feel free, enjoy the woods and wild. But do not venture away from your company. Wild animals may be on the prowl.

The most famous African Safari locations is in Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia and Southern African countries. Infact the East of Africa has many game reserves, parks and zoological gardens. Masai Mara in Kenya is popular and hosts many visitors each year. There’s some nature parks in West Africa. The Yankari Game reserve is situated in Nigeria.

If you go to South Africa, you can even ride Ostriches and play with Cheetahs! Several countries have these wildlife protected and can sanction anyone who poach or steal from the Nature reserves. So remember not to take anything away, without permission.

There’s many animal species here. Some are native to Africa, that is you can’t see them elsewhere! Watch out for Lion prides, for towers of Giraffes, entourage of Elephants, Monkeys and more. You might stay through the night. What you see is what is shown in NatGeoWild, just that this will be the live version!

Africa is surely, a land of diversity. There’s so much to do. So try to have fun when you visit Africa. Trust me, Africa is an amazing place and you won’t regret coming.

The Lion King, with short video

When you hear of Africa, what comes to your mind? Forests and Kingdoms, Lions and Elephants, Happy and sad people?

I decided to share a live performance of the song ‘He lives in me’ from the movie Lion King, to show the artistry, talent and creativity that exists in Africa. Africans in the music and movie industry are doing very well.

As a kid, I enjoyed watching the Lion King. The movie promoted African culture and heritage. It also taught that power can be blinding (is that not the norm in Africa’s leadership today?)

So if you haven’t seen the movie yet, try to and remember that Hakuna Matata is the best philosophy.
