What is it about Africa???!!!

Jump to last reply

I always find it funny to read the trip reports. They usually include most of the following:

The roads were TERRIBLE.... so much dust... average buffets... vehicles breaking down... small rooms... or bug-infested tents... mixed up itineraries... long border crossings... freezing cold nights... or incredibly hot days... luggage getting lost... and over-priced curious.

And yet... everyone ends off with "the best trip of our lives". "I can't wait to go back". "The most fun we've had in years".

What is it about Africa that captures people like this? What is it about Africa... that despite all the problems, mix-ups, and disorganization.... makes people want to come back again and again?

I love it!
