This is Africa

Posted by in Africa, Uncategorized


There’s really no place on earth quite like Southern Africa. The vast blue skies and low bush lands governed by an often unforgiving and brilliant sun. The intense colours and overwhelming beauty makes one want to evaporate. Or at the very least, disappear into the bush and return to living with nature. It’s a panacea for our modern mental maladies – gone are the existential feelings, the anxiety of missing out, the need to find purpose or have impact. This wondrous land, somehow makes one feel like existence is purpose enough.

Above are a few pictures from various hikes / trips in South Africa and Botswana. They fail to fully do justice to the real places, but hopefully they convey some of the magic.
