However, the colonial hangover does not overshadow the numerous indigenous tribes and traditions of Africa. The nomadic tribes gather in grand festivals such as the Gerewol Festival, Festival-au-Desert (Mali), Mombasa Carnival(Kenya) to name a few. Imbue the festive spirit and binge on the local cuisines(as diverse as Africa’s ethnicity), celebrating the forest spirit of the land. It is sure to resonate with the thunderous roar of the African lion; not to mention, the valiant pharaohs, who ruled once, and who rest beneath the mighty pyramids of Egypt!
