Project Description

“When you leave Africa, as the plane lifts, you feel that more than leaving a continent you’re leaving a state of mind.  Whatever awaits you at the other end of your journey will be of a different order of existence.”

~ Francesca Marciano

Africa changes you forever, like nowhere on Earth. Once you have been there, you will never be the same. But how do you begin to describe its magic to someone who has never felt it? How can you explain the fascination of this vast, dusty continent, whose oldest roads are elephant paths?
