The Best Travel Ideas on Africa

If your looking for brilliant travel ideas, look no further than Africa. A lot of negative news comes out of the continent, AIDS scourge, starvation, tribal wars you name it. I believe in changing that mentality, and looking at Africa through a lens of optimism.

There are a lot of positive things about Africa. My goal in this section is to collect people's memorable experiences in Africa. Experiences full of positive news, great adventures, wonderful sites visited, and new knowledge attained. People will be able to share what they liked about their visits to particular countries in Africa.

In the long run, a catalog of adventures and great memories will be in view, and people that have travel plans, can go and hopefully enjoy the same experiences with their families and friends. Memories with families and friends are priceless.

Enjoy precious memories with true friends. Spending time with a true friend, is time never to be forgotten. Below is a short poem [bonus video] about a true friend.
