Hand-Painted African Candles

Sub-Saharan Africa is rich in culture, landscapes and wildlife. A place where the bushman roams the blistering sands of the Kalahari by day and when the mighty African sun burns slowly into the horizon, you can hear the sounds of beasts in the darkness while the cosmos turn slowly above - It’s a place unlike anywhere else in the world, unmatched by beauty. It’s a living, breathing continent.
