Africa Geographic is a wildlife, conservation and travel magazine that showcases the animals, people and landscapes that make this continent so special. We communicate with readers, blog fans, twitter followers and Facebook devotees from all over the world, from our native South Africa (where the magazine is published) to Europe, the US and Asia – diverse people with diverse views, but all connected through a shared passion for Africa.
Every month, the magazine offers spectacular photography, inspiring articles and insightful interviews. We’re not afraid to confront the difficult issues (and there are enough of them), but there is also much to celebrate – Africa has some of the biggest, fluffiest, cutest, cuddliest, ugliest and scariest animals on the planet, and there are some incredible people doing incredible things to ensure that we will share our future with them.
Highlights from our June issue:
1. Hidden Talents
It’s a wildlife photographer’s dream to be able to forget the long lenses, and a well-positioned hide at a waterhole allows them to do just that. The results open up a whole new perspective on Africa’s animals and birds.
2. Black-footed lightning
Being small, shy and skittish makes southern Africa’s black-footed cat a challenging – yet very rewarding – subject for study.
3. Sea Saw
Once abundant but now virtually absent, the weird and wonderful sawfish has cultural significance for islanders in West Africa.
4. Variations on a theme
A starling is a starling is definitely not a starling… These colourful extroverts cannot all be tarred with the same glossy brush.
5. Blombos Cave: a capsule in time
Humans conceptualised and created enhancements to their lives earlier than had been thought – and they did so in a cave at the tip of Africa.
6. A lioness called Marilyn
A peek into the daily life of an Etosha lioness.
7. Pelican patrol
Protecting some of South Africa’s most vulnerable seabirds means keeping another threatened species, the great white pelican, away from their chicks.
8. Mauritius: island of the heart
Forget the beaches and head to this tropical isle for its wealth of natural history.
