People from all over the world vacation in Africa just to get a glimpse of the wild animals that are not found anywhere else on the planet.

These animals can include the giraffe, the long-necked mammal that eats from trees and tall plants as well as lions, leopards and cheetahs, always on the hunt for their next prey. 

The cheetah, which is known for having spots, is the world’s fastest land animal, reaching speeds of up to 113 miles per hour.

Of all the dangerous wildlife life found on the African continent, the buffalo, which can be spotted near any source of water, travel in herds and have an outstanding sense of smell. Rhino’s are very intelligent animals, which make up for their bad hearing and eyesight.

An animal most people find entertaining is the chimp, or chimpanzee. Just as intelligent as a human, chimps often defend themselves by throwing rocks or large sticks at threatening predators on the hunt for prey. Known for being really noisy, chimpanzees have character, but can also be very dangerous if threatened.

Africa’s not only famous for the animals that roam the land, but also for the ones that occupy the sky. Day or night, you will find something up above soaring in the clouds. 

Bats can be seen circling the night sky as these night-flying creatures search for insects to feed on as well as fruits and seeds. 

If you’re scared of bats, you may want to explore the land during daylight hours, as species upon species fill the skies, awakening from their long day of rest.

I like nature, cooking and photography. In my travels between Argentina and Italy I prefer witness through photography environment, natural and gastronomic riches.
