Lewis Hamilton explored the beauty of the motherland

Seven times Formula One world champion Lewis Hamilton recently toured Africa and the F1 driver showcased the beauty of the continent.


He came to Africa not as a goodwill ambassador showcasing what's not working on the continent but that, on the contrary, he proved that the motherland has so much to offer without telling stories of a broken continent.


The F1 champion spent several weeks in different parts of Africa, Namibia, Tanzania, Kenya and Rwanda. His trip made headlines around the world. His visit gave the world a glimpse of the continent as a travel destination.


Hamilton disseminated his findings in Rwanda and the profound culture of the beautiful country.


“How does one describe such an experience that leaves you so speechless? We were welcomed with smiles and music from the beautiful Rwandan people. This trip really showed me how diverse and rich in culture it is here. We hiked up through beautiful green fields where children would sing to us and up a volcano where we found Gorillas’’, he said.


“What a sight it was to see them in their natural habitat relaxed and protected by the community around them. This is where they should be, in their own homes free to live their lives in peace. It was a profound and truly moving experience”.


Kenya has an astonishing cultural history, with a strong rich heritage. The county went into independence in 1963. The Pokot people are one of the communities that occupy the county with Kikuyu, Luhya, and Kamba people being among the ethnic groups found in Kenya.


Hamilton spent time with the Pokot people and he says it was an honour to be amongst them.


“I spent time with the Pokot people in Kenya and just to be in their presence was one thing... To be welcomed was something different entirely and a massive honour I don't take lightly. The way I felt here is how I feel with my family back at home [ England]”, he said.


It is impossible to travel to any place in the world without missing the not-so-rosy aspect of life but Hamilton’s trip was a refreshing lesson on shining an aspiration on the motherland.
