Africa Tours

However to dispel these ghastly images, let me introduce you to very rare Africa Tours – which we like to call our Pink Diamond Safaris.

Africa is of course well known for its prodigious diamond production. What is not necessarily as well known is that Australia is a source of the rare and infinitely more valuable pink diamonds. Destinations Africa Pink Diamond Safaris would constitute similarly unique Africa tours

The Mother Land Africa

Travel Africa
by feztoo

There has been a lot going on in Africa lately and not too much have been good. Killings and the raping of the black woman it all seems so insane. But yet little has been done as far as support for the mother land. And to me the big question is why? As we look at this world today we see so many countries in turmoil and most of them because of internal civil war but some are having a little help from out side sources. And it all boils down to resources one faction wants to control it and not share in the wealth. Just like in Africa, a place rich in resources as well as beauty and wonder.

The mother land of life an all its wonder as we know of it. The epic center of all wonders a fantasy as well as true joy of the heart. But why is there so little help for Africa...

Algeria formally the People’s Democratic Republic of Algeria is a country in northward Africa, and the second largest country on the African continent, Sudan being the largest.
