I would go to Africa if I had the chance. That would be a one in a lifetime experience for me. To be able to see wildebeests, baboons, impalas, aardvarks, mongoose, and many other exotic animals in their natural habit is a must. :D

I would go to Africa in a second if I had the chance. There is nothing that I love more than to immerse myself in other cultures. I often watch live feeds from Africa to watch the animals.

I love to travel and Africa is a very interesting destination, because it has such a mixture of cultures, religions, lifestyles like anywhere else in the world.

I feel like there is a general misconception that Africa is a wild and uncivilized place. In reality it is a developing nation that is still struggling to repair the influence of imperialism.
I would definitely want to visit Africa and explore territory that has yet to be completely ravaged by humanity.

True, because even some people says the same on social media.

I am an African and I think this is one of the unique continents in the world, it involves diverse cultural practices, some historical sites and excellent climate free from winters and summer seasons; tropical climate. This cradle of man continent is amazing, despite her slow development.
