About This Quiz

You can sense your restless spirit when it gravitates to where you want to be. That place where you find yourself the happiest and at peace. Your true spirit comes out when we ask you what you really wish for. What's your ideal vacation spot? When you can imagine there are no constraints, no bills to pay, and you will be a success at the endeavor. THAT person embodies the true African spirit animal. 

Roar like a lion, run like a cheetah, play like an otter or soar like a bird. Whatever animal is inside you, it's sure to come out eventually, so it's best to meet it now. You can develop and build a bridge to that spirit by embracing those qualities that you admire in your African spirit animal. 

Because this quiz is designed to find your true spirit animal, it needs the truth from you. If we ask you where we'll find you at a party, don't say you would be dancing if you're most comfortable on the balcony observing the event. You'll also be asked questions about your likes, dislikes, interests and social interactions. Your answers will help us evaluate and match the animal spirit that is most like you. Try it out, and try living like your African spirit animal.
