Why we love this AFRICA’s sense of Humour

There is a well-known saying in Africa that locals and foreigners use to describe the absurd and bizarre things that happen on the continent.

This is Africa, also referred to as TIA, is a simple way to describe the ludicrous things that occur in Africa. It is not always easy to communicate this humour to foreigners on a Jenman African Safari tour but you can be sure that every tourist who has visited Africa will have their own stories to add to the acronym. We have compiled an array of weird, bizarre and downright ridiculous moments captured on camera that are just so TIA!
