Your Most Loved on Instagram

We invite you to revisit — or discover for the first time — the Instagram posts our community loved the most in 2021. We hope you enjoy our roundup of standout stories from around Africa highlighting the incredible and beloved people and places that we call home. 

Afrofuturism is a cultural aesthetic that combines science-fiction, history and fantasy to explore the African-American experience and aims to connect those from the black diaspora with their forgotten African ancestry. This photo from Kristin-Lee Moolman is one of our favorite examples of Afrofuturism. See the post.

The Giraffe Centre is the creation of the African Fund for Endangered Wildlife (A.F.E.W. Kenya), a Kenyan non-profit organisation. Their main purpose is to educate Kenyan school children and youth on their country’s wildlife and environment, as well as give local and international visitors an opportunity to come into close contact with the world’s tallest species, the giraffe. See the post.

Best known for our work to protect elephants, the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust (SWT) operates the most successful orphan elephant rescue and rehabilitation program in the world. You can visit SWT and see the elephants in real life when you join us on one of our 2022 trips in Kenya. See the post.

The Ol Pejeta Conservancy in Kenya is East Africa’s largest black rhino sanctuary and home of the last two northern white rhinos. See the post.

Another Afrofuturism gem. We love it just as much as you do.  See the post.

Namibia is one of our favorite African countries because of its wild landscapes. You will see things you never thought existed on planet earth. See the post.
