Africa’s Two Seven Wonders of the World…(A Mind Blowing Relic and the Most Amazing Action of Nature)

The Great Wildebeest Migration is one of the most spectacular phenomenons of the natural world. It is increasingly celebrated as a unique world heritage. The phenomena (mass movement of millions of ungulates (hoofed animals) occurs between the Maasai Mara Game Reserve (Kenya) and the Serengeti National Park (Tanzania).

They travel first to the north and then back to the south by the promise of rains…tirelessly following almost the same pattern each year, around the same time of the calendar. The great animals migration involves an estimated 1.3 million wildebeest, 200,000 zebra, and a multitude of gazelles, among a few other hoofed species. It is an amazing 2,900 km clockwise trek yearly. As usual, in this process some of them are attacked by leopards, lions, cheetahs, hyenas, jackals etc. It therefore becomes one of the most outstanding dramas of nature you could find any where in the world. It is an event which money can never buy.

The Pyramids of Egypt… a mind blowing relic

For many people, ancient Egypt brings to mind the pyramids, those massive monuments to ancient pharaohs left for future generations to remember the glories of the past.

The pyramids are fascinating. They are tangible remains of an ancient and complex civilizations. The pyramids such as those in Giza, Saqqara, and Dashur are some of the most famous relics on earth and of a time long gone. The pyramids are undoubtedly the most recognizable symbols of ancient Egypt. Scattered along the River Nile where the ancient civilization of the pharaohs once was (near what is now the city of Cairo), the Pyramids were monuments to the pharaohs, showing their great power even in death. Although badly damaged by years of rain and wind, and more recently by pollution, they still remain some of the most impressive ancient monuments in Egypt. Modern visitors find the pyramids intriguing and also perplexing.
