About Africa At A Glance

This website aims to present Africa from the point of view of indigenous Africans, to celebrate our common story with fellow Africans and share the same with people all over the world who want to know about Africa.

Africa is an interesting place to talk about and indeed visit. It is a continent of mixed stories of cultures, history and experience. It is claimed to be the birth place of man as the oldest human fossils were found there. Some historians even argue that it is the cradle of civilization. The western media today, however, tend to present Africa as a place where there are all things but civilization; a continent characterised by savagery, poverty and backwardness. They, however, agree that Africa has great tourist attractions with beautiful weather and wildlife. The continent has all these and more.
