I had the unique privilege of touching a #lion at Antelope Park in #Zimbabwe for 'Inside Africa.' For many reasons these apex predators are in steep decline in #Africa and could become extinct if the trend is not reversed. #CNN

It was moving reporting on this moment when #Mandela's remains we're removed from the Union Building for the last time ahead of Sunday's funeral - Take a look

Question: If you present a money-making idea to your bosses and they developed it into a success - are you entitled to a cut of the money it made? One man in South Africa says yes, as he takes his former employers at Vodacom to court. It's been going on for years but a decision could come at any moment. Watch my report and tell me what you think the judge should decide.

Did you know George #Lucas shot many scenes from #StarWars in #Tunisia? Even with huge sand dunes engulfing the fictional planet of 'Tatooine' it's still a sight to behold. Take a look at my recent trip to North Africa (article, video, pictures) and see how movie-making has long been a part of life here. #CNN

Roughly a five-hour flight from Europe and an alternative to North #African nations experiencing unrest, #Liberia  holds the potential to become a #tourism magnet. I recently visited the West African nation and found that much has been achieved during its ten years of peace - but more needs to be done. #CNN

BREAKING: Nelson #Mandela, the man considered to be the father of post-apartheid South Africa, has passed away at age 95. #Madiba, as he’s affectionately called, led a truly remarkable life in which he successfully co-founded the country’s first black law firm, fought against #apartheid, served 27 years in prison because of it and was released only to become the first democratically elected #President in South African history. He would go on to win a Nobel peace prize, negotiate conflicts in #Africa and beyond and establish himself as a global icon for #peace and #reconciliation. Stay tuned to CNN and CNN International for our special coverage of his death, his life and upcoming memorial services.

What does Mandela’s legacy mean to you?

Something for the artsy-types from a recent episode of "Inside Africa." Who is a fan of uniquely African design and architecture?

There's nothing like riding on a #motorcycle through the streets of #Monrovia, #Liberia. Watch me get a tour with "Agent Red" and look at how this war-torn country in West Africa is slowly putting itself back together. +CNN  +CNN Travel +CNN International

There are passionate feelings about this man right now and it could play a major role in #Tunisia's future. This week I sat down with President Moncef Marzouki for Marketplace Middle East and discussed how he intends to push through the current political, economic and security problems stalling the revolution.

Do you think the so-called #Arab Spring has failed in Tunisia - or elsewhere? +CNN International

From the UK to the States, the UAE and South Africa, I'm meeting fascinating people - so let's connect!
Introduction
ASSIGNMENT: SOUTH AFRICA

For two years I've been criss-crossing the African continent as a correspondent for CNN International and host of the documentary-style program "Inside Africa."

Almost 20 countries later, I've been to all regions of the continent and been consistently surprised by the innovation and perseverance of the African spirit.

I use this space to share some of our recent episodes, online articles and photo galleries of my journey of discovery.

Thanks for watching, feel free to comment on any post and let's continue to bring the world together!
