Sean I love these African stories. It touch my heart. It is part of our heritage. We do not hear it often enough. I feel someone should put it all in a book, if it is not published yet. Joy is such a great guy. He was our tracker once. Always a smile and so friendly. Every time we visit and we see him on game drives he always wave.

I love old stories, folk lore, whatever you call the stories passed down from generation to generation. I would hope we do not lose them. Thanks for the joyful start to my lovely day!

Haha, I’ve read that folklore story before when I was a kid! Always find those more entertaining!

One of the things I so love about my Africa is the vibrant story-telling, always entertaining, often with a wicked twist of humour. As you say, so important that we don’t lose these tales passed verbally through generations, as urbanisation changes the customs and habits. Thanks for sharing this one!
