Desert Dunes of Xolobeni Sands
South Africa

One of the largest of the Red Sand Dunes of the Wild Coast, Eastern Cape, South Africa. This area is know as Xolobeni.

This is is also a proposed sand mining site! There has been much protesting against the proposed mining of the area in recent years, and as yet mining operations have not gone ahead. But it seems this beautiful area may very well be distroyed in the near future.

If you are planning on visiting these dunes, I highly recomend a 4x4 vehicle or motorbike (you may even need to use walking paths in places to get to the best views).

More About Africa

Welcome to Africa, AKA the motherland! Check out African Internet Radio while you're scoping the panoramas.The earliest fossil of the homo sapiens family (human beings) was found in Ethiopia, dating back more than 200,000 years. Compared to this length of time, even the "ancient Sumerians" from 6000 B.C. are drooling toddlers.Let's mention a few African heroes you may have heard of, for inspiration in the face of the continued economic inequality and violence which plague Africa today: Nelson Mandela, first democratically elected President of South Africa, who fought against apartheid and served 27 years in prison while advocating freedom and peace. Haile Salassie, Emperor of Ethiopia, who resisted Mussolini and the fascist Italian invasion of WWII, and who is worshipped as an incarnation of God by the Rastafari movement. Kwame Nkrumah, first Prime Minister of Ghana, advocate of uniting Africa in Pan-Africanism. Fela Kuti, inventor of Afrobeat music, who declared his home to be an independent state, ran for president of Nigeria, and to whose funeral ONE MILLION PEOPLE came to pay their respects.In June 2001 the African Union was formed, consisting of 53 African States organized, like in the EU, around common economic and political development.Text by Steve Smith.
