6 Instagrams That Make Us Heart Africa

Africa is beautiful, not only because of its raw, natural, landscape, but because in its own unique way it boasts of some of the most beautiful imagery of everyday events. We are grateful to all who are able to capture these striking images.

We rounded up our favorite Instagrams that inspire us to get out and explore more of the continent — featuring everyday sights that we don’t get to see too often. From the backyards of Lagos to a beautiful sunset over the city of Nairobi, the images reveal the endless possibilities of Africa.
