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 amazing card came to me recently from a friend working in Uganda. It shows the range of birdlife in Uganda, including species such as the Crowned Crane, the Bateleur eagle, Saddlebill stork, Roller, Shoebill, Bustard, Bee-eater, Jacana etc.
This colorful card is the only one I have received from Liberia, Africa's oldest independent republic. This card shows traditional ethnic dress, but sadly lacks details as to the ethnic group it pertains to.
I was lucky to receive a card from Nevis, one of the tiniest of the East Caribbean islands, with a population of just 40,000. This island forms a federation with St. Kitts, and the two gained independence in 1983.
