AFRICA IS PERHAPS THE PLACE WHERE YOU WILL FIND YOUR ROOTS. A PLACE WHERE YOU WILL WITNESS THE PRISTINE POWER OF NATURE AND ITS PERFECT BALANCE, WHERE YOU WILL ENJOY THE PRIVILEGE OF GETTING UNBELIEVABLY CLOSE TO SOME VERY SPECIAL LIVING CREATURES. FOR THAT REASON ALONE, GO TO AFRICA AND INHALE ITS EARTHY SCENT EVERY MORNING.
Observe those creatures and rediscover the flawless beauty of nature. You’re going to fall in love with Africa.
Several countries in central and south Africa are good choices for a safari. I have traveled almost the entire continent and I recommend the optimum place: go to Masai Mara to see the largest number of animals at incredibly close range in the shortest possible time.
Your most precious photos are going to be souvenir photos you’ll look at again years later. As you look at them, you will again hear the call of Africa. Who knows? Maybe some of you are going to fall in love with Africa as I did and never be able to leave.
