Continental Drifting: AFRICA: Cape Town

Cape Town as seen from Table Mountain 

You know me as Cape Town and I am a modern city surrounded by amazing landscapes. It is my setting, more than my metropolis that will captivate most travelers. My beautiful beaches, rolling green hills, steep mountainous escarpments, and my deep foaming azure oceans are awaiting your arrival. My towering office buildings, high-rise apartments, modern shopping malls, and 3.5 million of your kind gives an impression of a big city; and that is what I am. Even my wilderness-tinged urban world cannot diminish this notion. Come see for yourself. 

Continental Drifting: AFRICA: Game parks

The Big Five African Game species plus the ubiquitous hippopotamus

I am Africa’s many game parks. I am committed to conserving African wildlife and their habitats. I am filled to overflowing with free ranging wild animals. I have many creatures to see; come experience my diversity of species, my lions, hyenas, cheetahs, buffalo, deer, elephants, camels, gorillas, birds, buffalo, giraffes, wild dogs and more.  My ranges cover gigantic open grasslands, desert dunes, sparse woodlands, dense forests, river deltas, mighty rivers, mountains, and wondrous waterways.

Springs in Africa, a poem by Raymond A. Foss:

A prayer for the continent
that there would be springs in Africa
that the land would know waters
rising from the ground
that the dry places
the deserts blooming
alive and recovering
hope for these people
living in strife
no more drought
waters flowing from heaven
wells and plants
to bring clean water
to the people
without war or extortion
all to be fed
all to be given water
life giving water
all to have
enough water to drink
