๐Ÿ‘‘๐Ÿค˜๐Ÿฟ๐Ÿ‘ธ๐Ÿฟ๐ŸŽ“๐Ÿ’Ž๐ŸŒน๐Ÿน๐Ÿš™๐ŸŒ Queen Nzinga Mbande was a ruthless and powerful 17th century African ruler of the Ndongo and Matamba Kingdoms (modern-day Angola). Nzinga fearlessly and cleverly fought for the freedom and stature of her kingdoms against the Portuguese, who were colonizing the area at the time. In her youth, Nzingha was strongly favored by her father, who allowed her to witness as he governed his kingdom, and who carried her with him to war.ย  Sheย participated in all the intenseย training for warriors. Nzingha grew up in a world normally suited for males.ย  She wasย educated in the fields of hunting and archery, and in diplomacy and trade.ย  Nzingha was a true politician, and showed true military and intellectual genius. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #angola #queennzingha #nzinga #fighter #diplomate #kingdom #warrior #hunting #archery #politician #discoverafrica #discover #connect #explore #learn #travelingafricans #travelblog #travelers #potugese #kingdom #womenentrepreneurs #women #investafrica #livinangola #africantrip #africandiaspora #africapitalism #africa

Landed in Dakar and found myself at a Cape Verdian restaurant in few hours by chance. Had a live band play at one on of my dinners in Praia and now here I was again eating lunch to a combination of live band music and a view of surfers catching waves. #VisaFreeTravelForAfricans #AfricaIsHome #AfricanOverlandTraveller #BoipeloTravels

ABOUT KILIMANJARO . . Where is Kilimanjaro? Mount Kilimanjaro is located in Tanzania, a country in East Africa. The mountain is one of the seven summits (the highest peaks on each of the seven continents), and rises 5,895 meters or 19,340 feet above sea level. It is the tallest freestanding mountain (not part of a mountain range) in the world. The nickname for Mount Kilimanjaro is the Roof of Africa. Weather The temperatures on Mount Kilimanjaro range from hot to bitter cold. The journey from the gate to the peak is like traveling from the equator to Antarctica in a matter of days. This is because the routes to the Uhuru peak cross different ecological zones. Mount Kilimanjaro has five major ecological zones, each approximately 3,280 feet (1,000 m) in altitude. Each zone is subject to a corresponding decrease in rainfall, temperature and life as the altitude increases. Moshi, the gateway town from which our climbs are organized, is located just south of the base of Mount Kilimanjaro. At 2,667 feet (900 m) above sea level, the town is located in the lowest, warmest ecological zone.

"Foggy desert, two words I probably never thought Iโ€™d put next to each other. All Iโ€™ve ever imagined a desert for was heat, dust and beautiful orange colour when the sun is just about to dip, so this was a pleasant surprise." ๐Ÿ“ท: @petersize10

I bought #africanprint at Poto Poto Market in Brazzaville, Congo (18) . I went to art galleries, an exhibit on black music, and a spoken word event in Kigali, Rwanda (19) . I discovered eight spots plus downtown Dakar in Senegal on quick day trips and mini-weekend getaways (20) . I started to love Senegal in Guinea (21) . I ate CACHUPA in Praia, Cape Verde (22) . I tried climbing a tree like a palm wine tapper in The Gambia (23) . I had the best coconut rice at Tea Baa in Accra, Ghana (10) .

Senegal had a lot in store for me๐Ÿ˜. I'll be back to pick up the land route in a few days time. Currently in Cape Verde, country number 21 of 24, strongly tied to Amilcar Cabral hence my beanie. Interesting story how this beanie got to be Amilcar's signature. I like the print on the beanie. #VisaFreeTravelForAfricans #AfricaIsHome #AfricanOverlandTraveller

Good news: I'm finally "free" and safe after about 24 hrs of mistreatment. @DIRCO_ZA managed to get me into Cape Verde. Thank you so much to all those that assisted in making noise, your effort is much appreciated. Special thanks to husbest, Linda, Refilwe, Thebe and Katchie. Nurse my body to health then sightsee a bit. Can't visit any of other 9 islands that make up the country of Cape Verde #VisaFreeTravelForAfricans #AfricaIsHome #AfricanOverlandTraveller

Just arrived in Cape Verde. The other (classification) foreigners before me were only asked for documents. I have all required documents plus fully paid accomodation proof for my entire stay (5days) and proof of return ticket. The police team including their boss asked me to show them "atleast" โ‚ฌ1000 (R15 325) in hard cash or they are flying me back out to Dakar on the next flight. It's been 3 hours of fighting with only one official speaking English. I've showed my bank statement and offered to show my balance at the ATM but they don't want me to get any close to the ATM. I have โ‚ฌ500 (R7657) hard cash which I'll be using for other countries as well. I've showed them this cash but they insist on โ‚ฌ1000. So I've decided to let them fly me back to Dakar using my return flight. Spoke to other South Africans who have been here recently and they were not asked to show proof of money never mind in hard cash. Just Passport, Yellow fever and โ‚ฌ50 for Visa on arrival. ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ ๐Ÿ’”๐Ÿ’”๐Ÿ’”๐Ÿ’”๐Ÿ’”๐Ÿ’”๐Ÿ’”๐Ÿ’”๐Ÿ’”๐Ÿ’”๐Ÿ’”๐Ÿ’”๐Ÿ’”๐Ÿ’”๐Ÿ’”๐Ÿ’”๐Ÿ’” Just like that I'm losing my +-R5900.00 flight and time. What also bothers me is they've locked my bag somewhere. I can only hope they don't plant anything in it. Unfortunately there is no SA representation here. NB: I'm being asked all this and to show the money in public. I asked the police boss if this cannot be done in the privacy of his office for safety and his reply every time was "show me the money". So everyone must know that I'm carrying on me while they also know the hotel I've booked at. I don't know what time the flight I'm being sent on will leave, except that I'll be on it. Just finished filling a form that's written in Portuguese. I first refused but they threatened to take my phone so now I'm cooperating with everything because they still have my passport and luggage. #VisaFreeTravelForAfricans #AfricaIsHome #AfricanOverlandTraveller

The tiny car-free island of Gorรฉe lies off the coast of Senegal, opposite Dakar. From the 15th to the 19th century, it was the largest slave-trading centre on the African coast. We visited the last of the many slave museums I visited on the west coast of Africa. TransAtlantic trade is something we should understand and not just dismiss as the past. Emotionally taxing visits but necessary . #VisaFreeTravelForAfricans #AfricaIsHome #AfricanOverlandTraveller #UNESCO
Refilled and ready for the last leg of my journey, a big part of me wishes the end wasn't near but ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿพโ€โ™€๏ธ This is my emergency snack.

The downside of buying more than one book at a time is that you might not get time to read them all, then forget to pack a book for your flight and end up buying the same book because the reviews really captured you. Now we have two of the same book. I grew up on both then became a strict non-fiction reader until about two years when I decided to start mixing again. More importantly I love African writers. A friend bought me Angela's second released novel when I was not into fiction so I only read it few years later and fell in love with her style. #VisaFreeTravelForAfricans #AfricaIsHome #AfricanOverlandTraveller
What is the name for these park gyms? Exercising for free by the Atlantic ocean is motivation enough. While on that, my legs have been giving me a problem for a while with the right (my main) worse than the other. The pain is getting more serious and my right knee is now also affected by me trying to relieve pressure from my right foot when walking. Spotted around the Mermoz area. #VisaFreeTravelForAfricans #AfricaIsHome #AfricanOverlandTraveller
