Jambo, I’m Michael – aka Africa Freak

Let’s Celebrate
Wild Africa.

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


How It All Began

When I was a child, I wanted to be a pilot. Eventually, life had other plans. I grew up in Africa. This is where it all began.

I 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, my life was turned upside down.

I 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 my real roots, I started to share my passion for the continent on the Web.

I didn’t know it back then, but I was about to embark on a journey of a lifetime.

Fast forward and today, we’re all about “celebrating wild Africa” with the world.

Feel like joining us?

Karibuni (welcome)!
