You can see a sunset and believe you have witnessed the Hand of God.
You watch the slope of a lioness and forget to breathe.
You marvel at the tripod of a giraffe bent to water.
In Africa, there are iridescent blues on the wings of birds that you do not see anywhere else in nature.
In Africa, in the midday heart, you can see blisters in the atmosphere.
When you are in Africa, you feel primordial, rocked in the cradle of the world.
