A Shout Out From the Garden Route in South Africa

Greetings from the Garden Route, a 300 kilometers stretch of the south-western coast of South Africa which extends from Mossel Bay in the Western Cape to the Storms River in the Eastern Cape. It includes a mix of golf courses, ancient forests, secluded artists’ communities, retirement estates, modern malls, craft centres, mountain hideaways and beach holidays. The name comes from the verdant and ecologically diverse vegetation encountered here and the numerous lagoons and lakes dotted along the coast.


Greetings From The Fulani people in West Africa

Greetings as we visit the Fulani people (also called Peul or Fulbe) from West Africa, the largest nomadic group in the world. The ethnic group is diverse, with people who were conquered and became a part of the Fulani through the spread of Islam. The Fulani people are scattered from Lake Chad in the east to the Atlantic coast. You will find them mainly in Nigeria, Mali, Guinea, Cameroon, Senegal, and Niger. Their language, Fula, belongs to the Niger-Congo language family.

Greetings from Mapungubwe National Park

Today we are at the northern border of South Africa, joining Zimbabwe and Botswana- in Mapubungwe. The area is reportedly Southern Africa’s first kinggom, established at Mapungubwe Hill between 1200 and 1290 AD. According to South African National Parks, the park which is in this World Heritage Site is the ideal location for anyone interested in wildlife and birds and for those in search of serenity. Mapungubwe means “place of Jackals,” or “place where Jackals eat”. We showcase some of the pictures from this beautiful site.
