Let’s make Local Lekker Again this week on #AfricaBBC

With all the negativity surrounding our incredible country, I think it’s time to start turning around this negativity and start focusing on the good. I dare not even mention “O” word whose surname rhymes with Pretorius…  And don’t even get me started on those police officers who dragged the Mozambican taxi driver behind their car.

Rather, I think it’s time we start looking at the good we can find in, not just South Africa, but on the African continent… The vast variety of landscapes and cultures, food and all that other good stuff we can find. On that note, I think you might dig this video… But before the video, here’s a little background info:

The #AfricaBBC series is drawing near to its conclusion, with only two regions remaining to be showcased on BBC Knowledge, DStv Channel 184. This week’s episode surprises viewers with never seen before footage from the Cape.  The film crew pushed themselves to the limits… Especially when one cameraman positioned himself on a whale carcass to capture the footage of it being feasted on by 30 Great White Sharks. The BBC crew were also the first to film unique tropical butterflies in a Mozambican rainforest, thanks to a discovery made on Google Earth… Proof that Google knows freaking everything!

#AfricaBBC is presented by David Attenborough, and has already pulled on the heart-strings of many South Africans. But this Sunday, 10 March 2013, at 18:00, you best be tuning into BBC Knowledge to watch episode four of THIS…

Celebrating this astonishing series, BBC Knowledge in association with Getaway Magazine are offering viewers the chance to win an exclusive East African adventure holiday through Kenya, Malawi, Tanzania, Zambia and Zanzibar. To enter, post a personal picture of Africa and/or its wildlife via a tweet using #AfricaBBC or on Getaway Magazine’s Facebook page. Each week the top finalists are selected, so if your pictures haven’t made it yet you still have until 24 March 2013 to submit your African snapshots. Time to put those photography skills to the test. Maybe mix it up with some Instagram filters for the Hipsters out there?
