We all belong to Africa. It is the birthplace of humanity, where we learned to walk, to talk, to play.

As other continents drifted to their present positions, the Equator’s tropical warmth helped to make Africa the hothouse of evolution.

Africa is the home to the greatest numbers of animals in the world. Her landscapes and wildlife are fascinating, but our closest affinity is with her people. Born in Africa millions of years ago, our shared heritage provides us with a universal sense of humanity.

That history conspired to keep Africans and non-Africans apart for so long is a tragedy.
Africa has been persistently misunderstood and misused by the rest of the world.

Journey into the heart of Africa and learn more about yourself!
