Africa is not a healthy place to be - expeditions are hard enough as it is without the "friendly" locals.

There are very few countries in Africa capapble of running themselves without descending into war - they still have a totally tribal society.

Some of the countries you have mentioned are not truly African althought they are obviously on the african continent.

Many of them are arab run and led. The people do not think of themselves as African.

Gambia I will grant you has never had much in the way of trouble - it is a tiny country which I have visited many times. It's neighbours don't have such a good record however.

As to South africa have you seen the murder rates???

As to staying at home there is NO country on this earth I wouldn't go to - I am a firm believer in "when your time is up there is nothing you can do about it"!!!

Very few ARABS in North Africa consider themselves to be ANYTHING to do with the tribes down south!!! Thought that was common knowledge???

Much like quite a few British people will have nothing to do with Europe!!!

The Force is indeed becoming strong within you young Desi my lad. Make sure you do not drift over to the Dark Side.
