Let’s Celebrate
Wild Africa.

Join us as we celebrate wild Africa, inspiring people to reconnect with nature.


Our Story

When Michael was a child, he wanted to be a pilot. Eventually, life had other plans. Growing up in Africa, this is where our story begins.

Michael immediately “fell in love” with a magical continent. With its abundant fauna. The warmth of its people. And its breathtaking landscapes.

Kwaheri Africa. Bonjour Europe. Overnight, his life was turned upside down.

He was confused and purposeless. Like a dhow without a sail.

“Out of adversity comes opportunity.” (B. Franklin) Indeed, that’s how Africa Freak was born.

To stay connected with his real roots, Michael started to share his passion for the continent on the Web.

Little did he know at the time, he was about to embark on a journey of a lifetime.

Fast forward and today, Africa Freak is all about “celebrating wild Africa” with the world.

Feel like joining us?
