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 card shows a view of the striking landscape and flora near Mahajanga, capital of the Boeny province in NW Madagascar. Much of the flora and wildlife of the island is endemic, making Madagascar a well-known destination for ecotourism. Mahajanga is a seaport at the mouth of the Betsiboka River, and has a sizable muslim community.
