Explore Africa With These Fun Activities

Have you ever dreamed of going on an African safari, climbing Mount Kilimanjaro or visiting the Sahara Desert? We have! Join us on Wizard School (formerly WonderBox) as we explore Africa and learn more about this fascinating continent through a wide variety of fun and creative activities.

Discover what it’s like to climb Mount Kilimanjaro

Mt. Kilimanjaro is located in northeastern Tanzania, a country in east Africa and is often called the “roof of Africa” because it’s the tallest mountain on the continent. Did you know that Mt. Kilimanjaro is also an inactive volcano? Check out the “Climb Mount Kilimanjaro” challenge on Wizard School to learn everything you need to know about climbing this peak. Then, use the built-in design tools to add yourself to a photo from the summit and send it to a friend!


 

Create a safari scene

African safaris give visitors a chance to observe animals like elephants, lions, hippos, rhinos, and gorillas in their natural environments. Going on safari involves riding in an open air vehicle with a canopy for protection from the hot sun. The seats are arranged to allow great views for wildlife photography. Check out the “Safari Scene” challenge on Wizard School to see what it’s like to go on an African safari. Then, use Wizard School’s built-in design tools to create a safari scene and share it with a friend.

 

Play an African Djembe

Drum beats are powerful, rhythmic, and pulsing. Learn about the Djembe, a traditional African hand drum that’s one of West Africa’s best known instruments. Then, find something around the house you can use as a drum (or make your own), and take a video of you playing it. Share your beats with a friend!

 

Visit the Sahara Desert

The Sahara is the largest hot desert on earth. The Sahara’s combination of sand, stone, heat and wind makes it one of the world’s most rugged and remarkable landscapes. What would it be like to trek across the desert on a camel’s back? Learn more about the Sahara Desert, then use the design tools to draw your very own desert scene.
