Asilia Africa

George Turner

This adventure challenges the perception that a safari has to be viewing the big 5 from a safari car. The majority of this adventure is spent walking, getting closer to nature than you ever can in a car. It is also about the wild landscapes, the solitude and the feeling of awe of being in the wilderness, instead of rushing to tick off the Big 5. Sera is also a conservation challenge – a place where people and wildlife are trying to co-exist.

The Legacy Untold

Mark Lakin

Seeing the variety of the ways that societies interpret beauty reminds us that beauty is indeed subjective, and in the eye of the beholder. It reminds us that many of these stunning and strong African women may find the idea of putting silicone bags in our bodies and walking on stilts on uneven floors just as strange as western women see some of their traditions. It reminds us that we should focus on how we have so much more in common that can unite us as opposed to these small and insignificant differences that are used to tear us apart.

The colours of the Rainbow Nations run deep. South Africa is a country that celebrates diversity from its people to its fauna and flora. At the tip of the continent the cold Atlantic meets the warmer Indian Ocean creating one of the most diverse marine life eco systems on the planet.
