Seven-time Formula One champion Lewis Hamilton is on a roots-tracing mission as he holidays in Africa.

Hamilton, is currently witnessing the eye-catching, famous wildebeest migration at the Masai Mara National Reserve in Kenya.

The Mercedes driver has won a joint-record seven World Drivers’ Championship titles with the great Michael Schumacher.

Hamilton also holds the records for the most wins, pole positions, and podium finishes in Formula One.

“This year I’m spending my summer break doing something I’ve wanted to do for years. I’m finally tracing my roots through Africa and, guys, to say this journey has been a grounding experience is an understatement. This has been a life-changing,” Hamilton has shared on his social media pages.

Hamilton was on the brink of becoming the overall record holder in the sport but lost the 2021 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix to Max Verstappen.

Before visiting Kenya, Hamilton spent some time in Namibia where he also cherished the stay.

“I feel like I have gained a new perspective on life, grown an even stronger love for animals and became even closer with my brothers who I’ve shared this special journey with.”

“My first stop was Namibia, one of the most stunning places I’ve ever seen with my own eyes. Words and pictures do not do it justice. The hot air balloon ride was surreal. We had to land sideways which is definitely something I’ll never forget. I could not think of a better place to spend this time off,” Hamilton’s post read.

Lewis Hamilton has won a race in every season, becoming the only driver to reach the achievement since he joined Mercedes.
