To be African is truly a special thing to be. And to those who are not from here and have never been here, let me sum it up in a quote from Brian Jackman a freelance writer, best known for his interest in wildlife and wild places – especially Africa:
“Africa changes you forever, like nowhere on earth. Once you have been there, you will never be the same. But how do you begin to describe its magic to someone who has never felt it? How can you explain the fascination of this vast, dusty continent, whose oldest roads are elephant paths? Could it be because Africa is the place of all our beginnings, the cradle of mankind, where our species first stood upright on the savannahs of long ago?”
I was born in a dusty mining town in Namibia and lived in Cape Town for most of my life, my time in Johannesburg is coming to an end and will return to Cape Town in December (Yay!). I have travelled abroad on two occasions and would love to see more of the world, but it is Africa that excites me the most.
Travelstart has a cool little quiz on their blog at the moment: Which African Country Do You Secretly Want To Explore? While there are so many countries in Africa I would love to explore, like Morrocco, Egypt, and Kenya – I thought it would be fun to take it. You can find the quiz here.
Which African Country Do You Secretly Want To Explore?
My selection of answers resulted in Botswana. And how exciting would that be? I have always wanted to explore the Okavango Delta, staying over at a variety of luxurious campsites (I prefer glamourous camping to roughing it out in a flimsy tent), sipping cocktails under an African starry sky and rising early in the morning for a safari. I visited the Kruger Park 2 years ago and it was amazing! It is a truly special experience being surrounded by so many beautiful wild animals.
Other than the African countries mentioned above, I would love to visit Mozambique, Tanzania and the Ivory Coast – friends of mine have recently moved there and you can read about their adventures on www.travelthroughbrics.org
