Africa is far away from Europe's and Asia's fancy life with air conditioners and all the privileges we are so used to, that we couldn't imagine a life without them...it's a different world, that kind of place that after visiting, you might become better person, appreciating all you have, but some part of you would still miss the wildness of Africa. Falling asleep surrounded by the sound of lions roaring or waking up with spectacular sunrise, in a place, that will blow your mind away.
You are so wrong, thinking that the secret is in deserts, lakes or mountains that are spread all over the continent, it's simply in those people living here, their spirit and soul, they are thankful and happy for every single, little thing. They live with passion, they are dancing, laughing, singing, working and pushing with that kind of love that most of us have never met...this is the real reason why many keep coming back to this continent, it's a place to recharge your battery, free…
If you are looking for the real Africa, Central African Republic is the place to head to. Only here you will find some of the world's most amazing wildlife, it's really pity to have government that doesn't really care about their people, leaving all this beauty uncured and not looked after, it could be so much bigger than it is. West Africa is what it was back than, the real African landscapes belong there, it's inhabited by most astonishing people you can possibly meet, their passion for music is one of extraordinary depth and richness.
You definitely will learn to dance in there, musicians from West Africa has incredible gift to entertain and to tell great stories, that will take your breath away, there is no need for best tv shows or tv...there are some great people in here that will do that in live, spontaneously. If you can learn to dance in Africa, you are two steps closer to their culture, that's a part of life in here.
South Africa is a bit more closer to the modernism, even if it has some wild places, great diversity, desert Kalahari, Table mountain, Namakwa's wildflowers, national parks,golden beaches and bountiful vineyards, and yes, did I mention the penguins standing on the Cape? It's edgy, it's beautiful and more, but if you are willing to discover other kind of wildlife, try to visit Cape town's parties.
It's also called Mother City, there are many stories about this nickname, one of it says that it translates "metropolis", but there is one more simple, that it takes whole 9 month in this city to do Anything! It's considered to be the most capital city alike in Africa, so many travellers pack their bags and head to Cape town, not knowing when they would come back from Mother city, the expectations are high, and no one comes disappointed...believe me!
