Colors of Africa – Video
For many of our clients, visiting Africa and “going on safari” is a bucket list item that cannot be missed. Some call it their trip of a lifetime; others are so captivated by this destination, they can’t help but go back for more. Africa, after all, is a huge and beautiful continent composed of 54 distinct countries with astounding natural beauty, awe-inspiring wildlife, and rich cultural diversity. It’s no wonder that return visits are common. As travel writer, Anthony Ham, so eloquently states: “Africa is for me a place of the soul. It is the wildlife, the great deserts and the savannah plains that speak of eternity, and the people who bring such warmth to the experience. It is the Serengeti and the Sahara, Etosha and Amboseli, the Namib and the forests of Madagascar. It is drawing near to a black-maned lion in the Kalahari, or watching the hyenas stream across the plains of Liuwa, or sleeping in a luxury lodge or remote wilderness campsite and staring up at the stars in utter, blissful silence.”
We recently discovered a new video on Vimeo that provides a brief glimpse of the natural beauty of Africa. It was filmed and created by Israeli photographer, Avichai Wechsler, who actually specializes in wedding photography and videography. If this work is any indication, we think he has a future in travel videos as well! We hope you enjoy this month’s Travel Video Share: Colors of Africa. As always, crank it up and enjoy in all its high-def glory!
