Away from the poverty and starvation we often see on our TV screens, Africa can be stunningly beautiful, and it always saddens me we don't see more of that side of the continent. It is poor, it can be dangerous, but it is also a continent of immense diversity (and 51 countries), hope, life and generosity. I have been lucky enough to travel the continent widely, and particularly to spend time far out in the wilds around the wildlife. Click on the images to see them full size.
