Flag

Flag

The South African Flag s the only national flag in the world with six colours and without a seal or brocade.  The flag of South Africa comprises horizontal bands of red (on the top) and blue (on the bottom), of equal width, separated by a central green band which splits into a horizontal “Y” shape, the arms of which end at the corners of the hoist side (and follow the flag’s diagonals). The Y embraces a black isosceles triangle from which narrow yellow bands separate the green ‘arms’; the red and blue bands are separated from the green band and its ‘arms’ by narrow white stripes. The stripes at the fly end are in the 5:1:3:1:5 ratio.

Africa

Africa

The very word Africa conjures up images of  an exciting destination with zebra; lions; jungles and grasslands, or perhaps famine or wars?  This may represent a little of this great continent, yet there has been no writer who is able to give a concise description of Africa. Referred in parts as, “the continent made up of third world countries and wild animals”, is a rather naïve approach.

We live on the Southern Tip of Africa and our country is so large and diverse it takes pages to describe this portion alone.  Africa still comprises large wilderness areas, protected wildlife parks and thousands of game reserves, it too is developing and humans of all races have also made their mark.

I hope to help you with information about the parts of Africa I’ve been and seen The people, animals, habitats and skies that make it a non-descript place of awe.

To experience Africa, would be to take a safari or that African vacation! Most will reward your every sense, with safe and comfortable accommodations offering the best service whilst allowing you an intimate sample of what makes Africa such a wonderful place to explore, others will disappoint you.

However, you can also catch a glimpse of Africa when you travel for business. I challenge you to ask the driver, the doorman, the waiter about themselves, what language they speak, or tribe they’re from. Ask where home is and what it’s like there.  I speak not of the hostile countries and yet there are some places in hostile countries that are safe, if you are going there on business anyway, you have already made up your mind!

Some African destinations are steeped in history and creativity, others not – so ask and your night at a hotel could end up being a very pleasant evening out in Africa!
