  • Kadealo, Travelling to Africa

    Travelling to Africa? Here are some tips for a worry free trip

    When considering travelling to Africa, many people seem to immediately think about crime, danger from armed militants, terrorism, and all the 'scary' things so often exaggerated by government travel advisories and western media outlets. And sadly, this climate of fear puts many people off entirely. Although some of the travel advisories and ongoing conflicts should be taken very seriously, travelling to Africa - “the forgotten continent” - is not how most people imagine it at all. It should be argued that the general public's perception of Africa has been warped by media reports of famines, conflicts, and mass corruption [...]

  • Kadealo, Surfing Spots in Africa

    Best surfing spots in Africa to check out

    When many people think of the best surf destinations in the world, they likely think of locations such as Hawaii, California, Indonesia, Australia, and so on. It would suffice to say that very few would consider any surfing spots in African nations (aside from perhaps, South Africa, which is a firm favourite of surfers around the world). This is a shame, as Africa - being the second-largest continent in the world – has some of the best surf spots in the world, some only known to a few enthusiastic and professional surfers. Africa has an amazing variety of surfing [...]

  • Kadealo, Hard to Hunt Animals

    The Big 5 – Top safari destinations to view them

    The Big 5 – rather grimly – originally referred to the 5 hardest animals to hunt in Africa around the turn of the 20th century, when thousands of hunters came from Europe and North America to hunt them for sport. They were considered the hard to hunt animals because they were either very difficult to track, dangerous when cornered or wounded, or a mix of all of these aspects. Although hunting these animals is now rare, sadly it has continued amongst a few wealthy individuals, amidst much controversy and international outrage mainly via social media outlets. These days though, [...]

  • Kadealo, Close Animal Encounters

    Unforgettable Close Animal Encounters in Africa

    Opportunities for close animal encounters in Africa are certainly not confined to the game reserve and national park safari packages. Far from it, in fact. For starters, Africa is blessed with glorious beaches boasting some of the best diving and snorkelling in the world, so close encounters with all manner of rare and exotic marine life await. Then you have the myriad lakes and delta regions where close encounters with awe-inspiring predators such as crocodiles and the continent's most dangerous animal, the hippo, are virtually guaranteed. And if that wasn't enough, you have the rainforests of central Africa, where [...]
