These are some of the stunning postcards that have come to me from among the world's most remote places and islands, with a special focus on the scenery, wildlife and culture of Africa. If you live or travel in exotic places, send along a card to display on the site. See also "Africa Stamps" on Facebook or Contact: maravalman @ gmail.com
This lovely card was posted in 2016 and shows a procession of islanders in typical dress. The population of this French territory in the Indian Ocean is mainly Muslim, and broke away from the Republic of Comoros at independence.
Two cards showing views of C.A.R. such as Boali Falls, and a Leopard resting in a tree. The top card shows both the national flag, and a small inset map of this vast land-locked country. The strip of stamps shown was a biodiversity issue, showing man at the center of an African ecosystem.
This lovely card shows the rare and endemic Mikado Pheasant, found only on the island of Taiwan. I was delighted to see also the stamp affixed, showing a more widespread species, the White-headed Thrush
This stunning card shows a view of Sapoaga Falls on the island of Upolu, and the lush forest that is typical of the island's interior. The card was franked with a stunning array of lovely stamps, showing Samoa's flora and marine life.
