Africa, Dangerous or beautiful?

Post by Silverwolf111 » Wed Aug 11, 2010 11:12 am

I think Africa is beautiful. But it is also dangerous too. What do you think of Africa as?

Africa is both dangerous and beautiful, in a similar way than Australia is. Both countries have got extremely interesting (and deadly) wildlife and spectacular scenery/landscape.

I've been to South Africa about...3 times now. It is beautiful! The most dangerous part there is driving, and someone possibly stealing something. The wildlife can be dangerous, but only if you get out of your vehicle next to a lion.
Africa's nature is wonderful, when your out in the bush. You have to be wary of all the animals around you though. As long as you stay in your car, and don't get too close to the animals, you will be fine.
Note: Not all of Africa is a big wildlife reserve, only small parts are. There are cities like Johannesburg and Pretoria which are very pretty, despite the lack of wildlife.

I think diseases like malaria and HIV also make Africa a dangerous country to visit. For example, 40% of South Africa's population are HIV-positive, and it is still one of the world's most visited and successful tourist locations. Poverty, in the other hand, increases the rates of criminal acts, which also add up to the "dangerous" category.

On the contrary, not all places in Africa are disease-prone. Pretoria, in South Africa, is malaria free, and I believe HIV free as well. I stay there normally. If you go to a game reserve, or wildlife park, you have to take malaria pills which are disgusting. It's only some places, and depending on the time of year that you go.

Don't forget the West Nile Virus which is quite common in Africa.

Also, Africa is both beautiful and dangerous, with awesome landscapes, beautiful plants and animals, killer bees, deadly diseases, and more.
