Greetings from Africa postcard

For many years the most common European travelers to Africa were slave traders or colonizers. Indeed many early accounts from travelers in Africa are traveling from their Mother Country to new African colonies to report on the status of people and governments or to say how colonization has changed an area. However in more recent years travel to Africa is more focused on nature and learning about the traditional cultures. People come from all over the world to experience and learn more about the many diverse cultures and peoples of Africa and to go on Safari’s to see lions, elephants, and other fantastic animals in their natural habitats.
