The safest time to travel to Africa? Marula season!

If you have been putting off your trip to Africa because you are afraid of aggressive and large animals like elephants, lions, gnus, hippos or giraffes running you over, here’s a solution for you: Go in summer when the marula fruit is ripe. It knocks out the animals and you can wander through Africa without any of the animals running after you.

    I grew up watching that in South Africa. It is from a movie name ‘Animals are Beautiful People’ from a South African director names Jamie Uys. If you ever see an apperetif / liquer named ‘Amarula’, it is made from the same fruit. Popular South african export.
    (Small point of order: gnus aka wildebeest and giraffe are generally not aggressive towards people, tend to be quite shy. As for hippos, they are even more aggressive than lions!)
    As for visiting Africa, definitely recommended. Its the only way to see animals, not in cages in a zoo. Rather in a big open National Park where they are in their own element and you are the visitor.
