Would you journey into Africa?

Would you sail across the Atlantic through South Africa?

If I would be given the chance, I would love to. I imagine the author's experience to be amazing and exciting, despite some challenges.
Kudos to Tina Dreffin for her book which received many positive reviews for this book.

I would love to travel to Africa one day! The cultures seem so diverse and unique. I would be interested in seeing how the people live and eating their traditional food.

I would absolutely love to go to Africa and go on a safari. It is very high up on my list. Nothing really compares to getting a chance to see such majestic, exotic animals up close in the wild. I think it would be quite life-changing.

I live in Africa and I don't think I've even seen half of the wonders and the beauty. I hope to visit as many other countries within my beautiful continent as possible. We may have started developing late, but there's so much promise here.

I would definitely go to Africa, given the opportunity. It has always been a place I have wanted to go. Beautiful country, beautiful people, amazing wildlife.

As an African, I would highly recommend a visit to Africa for everyone. Living in this beautiful continent I haven't explored a tenth of its exotic features but the little I have could take me three lifetimes. Please start with Cameroon, it's Africa in miniature.

Africa is so diverse with different cultures that it would be an amazing adventure to take a trip round the entire continent. Not even sure where I would begin. Perhaps Angola, then Nigeria, then Sudan, then Mauritius, then South Africa, I am not sure but one thing I am certain about is I would return home with a memorable experience worth a thousand stories.

I've met people from Africa and they are amazing. I think their country would be the same.

Personally, I don't think I would. It's just something that does not interest me.
