  • Kadealo, African Trees

    Check out these iconic African trees

    Courtesy of vil.sandi/Flickr African Tree: Baobab (Adansonia Digitata) Other names include Boab, Boaboa, Tabaldi, Bottle tree, Upside-down tree and monkey bread tree. These trees hold somewhat of an iconic status in Africa – especially Madagascar, where 6 indigenous species belong to that island alone – which have a characteristic look about them where they look like they are growing upside down, with the roots at the top which are actually its branches. The trees are known for their fire-resistant bark and have a remarkable drought resistance. These giants grow up to 30 metres high, and carbon [...]

  • Kadealo, Maps of Africa

    Collection of fascinating facts and maps of Africa

    Africa is so often labelled “the forgotten continent”, simply because people just don't know much about it, and it is so often ignored in western media, which tends to feeds this cycle.

However, South Africa, Mauritius and Namibia all now have designated places for social nudity. South Africa currently has by far the most nudist beaches and social spots in Africa, despite the fact that technically public nudity is still banned. However, areas are being designated “Official Nudist Areas” where you can enjoy being naked without any fear of prosecution, and even in the [...]

  • Kadealo, African Natural Wonders

    25 African natural wonders for your bucket list

    Courtesy of ER Bauer/Flickr African Natural Wonder: Sossusvlei, Namibia With its iconic red sand dunes, that are constantly moulded into different shapes and patterns by the wind, Sossuvlei is one of the most photogenic wonders of Africa. The sand dunes are in fact some of the largest in the world, and the salt and clay pan at the end of the Tsauchab River is where Soussusvlei gets its name from: In Nama and Afrikaans it means “dead-end” and “marsh”. The iconic red dunes of Soussusvlei are formed through a geological process that has been taking place [...]
