Could you send me more information about the cultural and wildlife tours in Nigeria?  I intend visiting Nigeria for a conference in July 2008 and would like to plan a trip for perhaps a week before or after the conference, which is being held 8-11 July at Lagos, for myself and my partner.  My main interests are in the people and wildlife (particularly birds), and my partner just loves to travel.

From Kenya: Wonderful. Thanks for your swift reply.  I did a search on google and came across your site. It is fascinating. What wonderful work you do. Kathryn Mahalo

From Switzaerland: I would like to congratulate you on the postings about Nigeria. It is very interesting and the pictures are marvellous. You remember maybe that I was living in Nigeria for 30 year and a lot of your pictures let my heart beat go up again. I am especially surprised about the holiday resort of Obudu Ranch. When I was visiting the place in the seventies, we rather had to drive through a river bed than a road to finally reach the ranch.  I am really impressed about the development. The pictures of Abuja and the Durbar are just exciting! Thank your for your information. I always look forward to your new postings. Walter

Your latest contribution to Africa travel Magazine (on-line) was very informative, wonderful and positive to the struggle that African fashion has always been. You placed African fashion on that beautiful and respectable place that it rightly deserves. Even though I am male I see beauty in our woman and derive loads of pleasure from the development of our people. Thank you for being a great African.. David Moloteni.

Thanks a lot for your kindness too - the lots of gifts given out to people, that was so touching and moving. I will definitely check the website out for more pictures and stories about my country. I am so glad you enjoyed the tour and all the info I am sure will be on the net soon, I suppose. I pray to God to give you continuous good health and kindness at heart. Take care and thanks again. Rejoice.

From Kerala, India: I am from India. I came to know about the flying hospital through discovery channel. Inspired by that programme I planned to organise it in Kerala. A beatiful greeny place. There are a lot of poor people who is incapable of doing surgeries due to the utter poverty. If you could give me the details on your services it would be very helpful to coordinate an effective programme for a noble cause. I would like to know about the details on following topics.

From USA: Dear Muguette. Since I read your article about Morocco, we took a group of African American Female educators there last year and had a wonderful time. Hope to take a group again next year. Briefly, the experience was wonderful. We spent most of our time in Agadir with a one night excursion to Marrakech. We stayed at Club Valtur and the resort was great, albeit very Italian. I didn't learn much about the people or culture of Morocco, hence the need for a second trip. However, I did make a few friends (smile). Morocco is a fascinating if you love sensory experiences or sensory overload!! The experience started as soon as we boarded the Royal Air Maroc flight, and continued for the entire trip. I'll never forget the sights, smells and sounds of the souk at Marrakech!!! Shopping was great as well. As I said, I prefer to get a little more into the country itself, but it was a great 'spa experience'. The trip was billed as "Sister Scholars at the Spa"!!! Actually, Morocco was a great value I would go again for that reason alone. I started writing an article several months ago and would be happy to share my thoughts with you further.

Dear Jerry: It will be a pleasure to tell our readers about your centre.

Diana Reef Resort and Spa. "Our post tour to Mombasa was exquisite. Six of us traveled there after the ATA Conference in Nairobi, and what a treat. The resort is luxurious, from the minute you enter the lobby, of which the floor is an aquarium. The rooms were beautiful, the food outstanding and the spa trreatments were absolutgely wonderful. We toured Fort Jesus and did a city tour of Mombasa, which was both informative and interesting. It's always good to learn as much as possib lle about each African destination. Everyone was pleased with our experiences in both Nairobi and Mombasa. The conference was one of the best to date."
