There is no way to truly point out something that creates the most overwhelming feeling of my soul awakening when visiting Africa. Perhaps it’s the colourful breakfast on a terrace with the chorus of “Hallelujah” ringing captivatingly over the misty treetops, or maybe it’s the first magical site of snow-capped Kilimanjaro pushing her way through the cloud cover. Perhaps it can be attributed to the smaller creatures, such as the cream-striped owl moth that flutters past me as I get off my international flight.
Suppose it is just a single thing or a combination of the most overwhelming experiences. There is no doubt that AFRICA will always provide the most mind-blowing, soul-awakening, sensory-overloaded experiences in the world. It doesn’t matter where in Africa; the feeling remains the same.
For some, a visit to Africa would be their first, yet for me, it was a homecoming. A homecoming for my love affair with the great outdoors, complimented with untarnished culture, spiritually enriching moments and great life-changing experiences.
I might have chosen to live in first-world Australia for a variety of reasons, but a large piece of me always ignites when I share stories of Africa or allow her precious and enriched soils to dust my feet. Today was no different, as I kicked off on a two-week epic safari itinerary into some of Tanzania’s most incredible and well-known wildlife destinations, including Tarangire National Park, Manyara National Park and the Serengeti. With an extra beat, my heart and soul were content as I embarked on my journey.
Africa, MY Soul-Enriching Destination!
Imagine experiencing magnificent herds of elephants and giraffes crossing the road before you or walking on the ridge of an ancient volcano whose crater holds one of the wealthiest wildlife densities on Earth. Shake hands with a Maasai warrior whose bloodied knife carries stories even too far-fetched for fiction novels or seeing pint-sized children single-handedly take care and control of their families’ wealth in the form of cattle. This is Africa; her cultural wealth is so abundant that even a lifetime of travel would only scratch the surface. A continent with stories hidden deep in the sand and with tradition passed down only by the flickering of the evening flames.
This is the land where it all began and still, today holds life’s gems in the palm of her hand. Africa, MY soul-enriching destination.
