Amazing Africa: Sea, sun and snow

This week’s Amazing Africa highlights the great variety of landscapes all across Africa. From craggy rock formations in Madagascar to the lush coastline of Tanzania, and from snowy mountains in Lesotho to and dirt roads in Kenya, our featured photographers have really captured how varied the continent’s landscape can be.

A note on our photographers: Morgana Wingard is a freelance photographer. Her images were taken on ONE trips to Kenya and Liberia. ONE member Valencia Rakotomalala‘s photos are all from Madagascar, a country that she describes as “a large, beautiful and diverse island that we Malagasy’s call the ‘red island.’ Max Norton is a ONE member who took the stunning photo of the Maluti mountains in Lesotho. And despite her claims that she “is no photographer,” we were thrilled to share Brooke Mancuso’s pictures of the landscape of Malawi.
