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 dating shows they may live [...]

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. The misconceptions people have about certain African nations are also completely removed from the reality: For example, many people still imagine Ethiopia as being a place of drought, famine and civil war, because of the widely reported famines it suffered in the ‘90s due to the Communist insurgency. But this could not be further from the truth: Indeed, most of the country is actually mainly comprised of a lush, green mountainous topography, [...]

Nude Africa: Top 10 social nudity destinations

By |2020-10-25T20:10:22+00:00July 11th, 2020|

Perhaps it may come as a little surprising that there are now quite a few places for nudists to enjoy stripping down as nature intended in Africa, being that most of Africa is rather socially conservative still. 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 unofficial beaches you will not [...]

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 for millions of years. The [...]

Its source lies in the Guinea Highlands in southern Guinea. It runs through Mali, Niger, down the border with Benin before flowing through Nigeria and out into the Atlantic ocean via an eneormous delta, which is known as the Niger Delta, or sometimes the Oil Rivers. The Niger is uniquely shaped for such a large river, almost like a crescent or boomerang shape. This is because the Niger used to be two [...]

Useful travel tips for an African safari

Africa is as beautiful and majestic as it is wild and diverse, and it has the ability to evoke emotions from within that we never thought possible. Africa almost literally has it all: From the grasslands of the Savannas and the desert landscapes of the Sahara to the tropical white sandy beaches of Africa’s tropical islands, each sight will most certainly leave a lasting impression upon you. The main issue that people seem to have with Africa, is that they believe the media and fall into the trap of categorizing Africa as one entity. Africa is comprised of more than 40 countries, each one [...]

Our planet is home to some of the most beautiful and magical locations you could ever hope to clasp eyes on, yet many of us will sadly never get to see them for one reason or another, and that is such a shame. People say that travelling is one of the most rewarding experiences you could ever wish for, which is why we’re being encouraged to pack our cases and jet, or sail, off to parts of the world that we may previously have never considered visiting. When booking your next getaway, instead of going to the all-inclusive holiday resort that you always go [...]

For couples from all over the globe, a romantic getaway for two could be just what is needed to reignite the spark in their relationship/marriage, rather than just doing something conventional, if this applies to you, why not push the boat out and try something new?
