Africa, a continent that enchants

 

If I ever have seen magic it has been in Africa ”, Ernest Hemingway

 

I travelled quite a lot around different continents and countries. On all my journeys I made once-in-a life-experiences one can never forget. But travelling in Africa is different. Africa captivates you soul for the rest of your life. Many quotes of famous people, like Ernest Hemingway, describe this magic phenomenon, but it is the same for everyone who has travelled to Africa and to whom I spoke. To travel in Africa is not an easy task mostly due to political instability, big and small local conflicts and an unreliable infrastructure.

But how to describe the fascination for Africa?

Africa is a true land of wonders which offers unique and breathtaking natural sceneries, a species-rich fauna and flora with some of the most fantastic animals in the world. Africa preserves a uniquely strong cultural heritage and art, which inspired and characterized even the most famous modern artists like Pablo Picasso and Henry Moore.

 

Africa is the cradle of mankind, maybe it is the reason why Africa enchants you forever.
