At Ebute Water Front in Ikorodu area of the Lagos state, young Kosoko has already put in place facilities worth millions of naira for his zoological garden. Christened origin gardens, the place is located in such a way to help tourist and visitors relax while savouring the beauty and elegance and the movement of the sea as well as having enough time to see the animals as they gyrate in all manner of mesmerization. For Abiola Kosoko, the idea began thus: "This zoo is the type of dream I have throughout my school days. And anywhere that has been forgotten I've always wished to add life to it in terms of development and expansion. I tried this the first year, that was some nine years ago and it did not quite click. Then when Senator Ahmed Tinubu became governor in 1999, I approached him with the idea of this project. But his advisers told him I was a land speculator and so they should shun me. That was when I decided to go on with this project alone", he disclosed smiling. "That was why I had to buy this piece of water front with my own money. I bought it then and waited for six months so that I could get some animals to fill the place. The intention was for me to start making money from it immediately and so from 22 ndDecember 2006, the animals were all in cages, chained because greater part of the land was not developed. But then we needed to take off. And you will not believe it, from that 2006 December till 2007 January we made close to N600,000. And that was how we ...

Boat Trip to Seal Island (Hout Bay - South Africa) [02:29]
(EN) Hout Bay (Afrikaans: Houtbaai, from Afrikaans for "Wood Bay") is the name of a coastal suburb of Cape Town, South Africa with a mix of neighbourhoods from the very rich to the very poor. It lies in a valley on the Atlantic seaboard of the Cape Peninsula and is twenty kilometres south of the Central Business District of Cape Town. The name Hout Bay can refer to the town, or the bay on which it is situated, or the whole valley. Hout Bay, also known as "Dungeons" to the surfing community, is one of the sixteen recognised big wave spots around the globe. The annual Red Bull Big Wave Africa competition is held here. Swells of up to 47 feet (14.3 m) have been recorded here as well as numerous deaths as a result of boating, diving and surfing-related incidents in the area. The spot itself consists of various reefs. The most popular is called "2.5" since it is 2.5 metres (8.20 ft) deep. Behind it is "3.5", which is 3.5 metres (11.48 ft) deep. There is also a reef that is reputed to be able to hold a 100 ft (30 m) high wave, should one ever come. Before the use of jet-skis to enter and leave the area, the surfers who braved these waters had to paddle through a dark and deep channel, through to where the waves break. Hout Bay is a popular tourist attraction among both local and international visitors. There are a variety of restaurants in the village as well as two hotels (the Hout Bay Manor and the Chapman's Peak Hotel), many bed and breakfasts and self-catering accommodation ...

Cape Town, South Africa - Kinetic Snapshots [06:21]
Spring in the Mother City. On flight fatigued walkabout in the city, I stumbled upon Green Market Square selling tourist junk. After climbing Table Mountain, sans cloud cover, I rode back down on the cable way. I was lucky nabbing a hard to get ticket to Robben Island. We were shown the prison by a former political prisoner named Nande (apologies to the gentleman if I've misspelt his name). You'll have to wait for the photo/video to see Nelson Mandela's cell. The V & A Waterfront is gentrified and tourista-fied, though still a working port and ship yard. Created: 30 October 2011.
