LOS ANGELES, CA – A lifestyle travel series in the spirit of Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown, UMC – Urban Movie Channel’s original travel series WORLD WIDE NATE: AFRICAN ADVENTURES, returns with nine new, weekly episodes, beginning Friday, April 6. Through the thrilling, first-hand experiences of international travel adventurer and vlogger Nathan Fluellen (worldwidenate.com), the rugged beauty and diversity of the African continent and its people is showcased from a variety of viewpoints – culture, food, communities and activities originating from each country.
Whether abseiling (aka rappelling) down some of Africa’s highest peaks in Lesotho, making the popular dish, Chakalaka, with a finalist from South Africa’s “Master Chef,” surfing the waves with former street kids in Durban or presenting the variety of geographical landscapes and cultural institutions in each country, Fluellen takes viewers on the African journey of their lives. While Africa is a continent that is still being discovered by culture enthusiasts, travel veterans and newbies alike, Fluellen’s expeditions will encourage viewers to grab their passports and book a trip or enjoy the variety of sights, sounds and wonders Africa has to offer from any device wherever they are.
“I’m excited to share World Wide Nate: African Adventures with audiences everywhere and to use this series to change the narrative of how Americans view Africa. I look forward to taking viewers along with me on my action-packed adventures through Africa and enlightening them on the amazing cultural experiences that span across the continent,” said World Wide Nate host and executive producer Nathan Fluellen.
