Experience an intimate immersion in the magic of this special place, where the confluence of so many beautiful animals, people, cultures and tongues, erupts in a celebration of elemental life and unrivalled natural beauty.
Discover the breath-taking works of the African elements – the fruit of the rivers washing over boulders, and the abrasive winds whistling their mournful songs across majestic mountains, and through ancient caves. Leave your footprints on the red canvas upon which the sun unleashes its fiery splendor every day, and embrace the refreshing African rains after a day of exciting adventures...
The combination of the African natural elements, and the creativity of her people is evidenced everywhere - in beautifully sculpted clay pots shaped by hands that are the keepers of ancient art forms . It can also be appreciated in the vibrant colored oxides that decorate traditional huts and homes that have been hewn from the ground on which they stand. This magic that is created when Africa's people create from nature's bounty is even in the fragrant powder that rides on the breeze as the carpenter skillfully shapes handmade cooking utensils, statues of animals, fishing boats and furniture.
Africa is calling, and I must go…
The magic of Africa is the sparkle in the beads of traditional jewelry, it is the bosom from which trees, fruits and vegetables drink the essence of life. It is the crushed bones of fierce wild animals. It is the essence of the proverbial circle of life – made up of pure earth and the ashes of yesterday’s cooking fires.
You see, the magic and mystery of Africa, continues, as it has for centuries. It carries a raw energy that testifies to the sheer beauty that is Africa. If you don’t believe in magic, chances are you have not yet experienced the rich essence of this place that is the very epitome of the sands of time.
