of Africa,

Africa – a home of  mystery and intrigue,

Africa – a  piece of the earth so virgin,

a place so pure and rich.

Yes! Rich,

rich in the earth and secrets of past,

rich in the colours of creations,

rich in smell of uncompromising purity.

Purity of a life so ancient,

so aged yet powerfully standing,

standing so tall and strong,

standing out with an elegance

that refuses to be intimidated,

peaking out like

Masts of the gods………….

Now I have your attention in South Africa

motherland’s gateway with Drakensberg mountains,

the uKhahlahamba, Zulu for “barrier of spears”

located in the majestic KwaZulu Natal and

presenting the Tugela Falls, the second highest

in the world at 948 m. Tuge means “sudden” in Zulu.

The true icon of beauty are the Table mountains,

 Hoerikwaggo by the original Khoi for

the mountain in the sea or

 Umlindiwengizimu by the Nguni,

“the watcher of the south”, and whose legend

says was placed here by the creator as the

Custodian to protect all of Africa.




You cannot miss out on Algeria,

now the largest country in Africa,

tenth largest in the world,

ancient as the days known.

Tassili n’ Ajjer,

a mountain range in Algerian

section of the Sahara desert,

jutting out of the earth

like a natural forest

with prehistoric rock of art

that swears to an intelligent folk past……



She was suddenly hit by the hot humid air of the tropics, but there was yet a freshness that hung in the atmosphere. She closed her eyes and stood very still, blocking out all noise around her; from the voices urgently calling out offers for the best taxi price to the far-off sounds of the planes jetting off and landing. She had arrived at high noon and she savoured the sense of decision that had seen her board the plane to a land she had not been to in so many years……………..
