Do you want to be published in your own issue of our online magazine? Well now is your chance with our ‘Your Africa Geographic Feature’!

After trekking around the bush the whole day under the African sun, what better way to relax than to put your feet up with a nice cold drink while watching the sunset – the perfect end to another great day in Africa. But why stop there? Our feet deserve some recognition for all their hard work, so in our next ‘Your Africa Geographic Feature’, we are celebrating ‘Feet on Safari’!

Submit your photos of your “footsies”, or “shoefies” (a selfie of your shoes), while on safari in the African bush and they might be published in our special ‘Feet on Safari‘ magazine issue!
