These are some of points (sharpened by my own experiences and observations) travel-writer Paul Theroux makes in his work: Dark Star Safari: Overland from Cairo to Cape Town.
I've been blessed to have also visited parts of Africa, having taken trains, planes, and automobiles (hitchhiked for most part) from Johannesburg to Cape Town, South Africa, up Garden Route to Durban, Swaziland, Kruger National Park, and back to Johannesburg, on to Pretoria and Voortreeker's National Monument (does it still stand?) while en route to Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe (Rhodesia).
I met up with an English lass on train in Bulawayo whom I had met near George, South Africa and bunji-jumped with off a bridge weeks before while travelling back to Johannesburg.
I then went to Tel Aviv, Israel before coming to Home Sweet Home(USA).
May God bless Africa with genuine leaders who love their people and who put their people above their personal ambitions and greedy temptations.
