To be honest, I would take the risk of exploring one of the beautiful lands in the earth.

In a heartbeat! I definitely have a bit of wanderlust, and I would just love to see Africa. All parts of it too, not just South Africa.

I already live in Africa in Kenya more specifically. I would still love to travel to other countries within Africa.

I would love to journey across Africa because that is where humanity started and many great cultures have flourished there. Despite the current issues that they have, Africa is a rich and vibrant continent with many different tribal groups. My favorite things to do in Africa would be to see the ancient ruins and the wild animals.

As an African, I would love to visit the places I've never been to and interact with the different cultures.

Absolutely! I would love to explore that beautiful continent and witness all its beauty. I would love to see how people live and what problems they face on their community and then go to see wild animals as close as possible. I belive it would be a life-changing experience.

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 think if given the chance, I would like to journey into Africa. As a biologist, this would be an amazing opportunity to see rich examples of flora and fauna that would be very different from those I have seen in the United States. I also would enjoy exploring the cultural and artistic differences between my home and what can be found throughout Africa.

Luckily for me I already live here!

I have a brilliant journal that my grandfather kept of his journey from the UK to Egypt, and then the travels through Africa down to South Africa. Some absolutely amazing experiences and people...

I'd have to get over the sailing bit, but I think anxiety aside it'd be fun to sail around the motherland.

I have lived in South Africa all my life and have not experienced most of what this great continent has to offer.

I would love to go up north to see more of the continent.
