Two new UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Africa for 2008:
Le Morne Cultural Landscape, Mauritius
The Sacred Mijikenda Kaya Forests, Kenya
2007 saw the addition of four sites. The new ones for 2008 were announced back in July (a bit late to posting the news this year, but trying to be thorough...), bringing Africa's total to 76 in 28 different countries out of a total of 878 around the world (8.6%).
Some five years into the life of Afrika T, I now find myself unable to keep up with contributions at a level that I and you have come to expect from this blog. Partly this is because of other activities in responsible tourism (see example here, and another here), partly from other projects in sustainability (see examples here and here), and partly for reasons that are more personal.
I am certainly still active online and in responsible travel, so feel free to comment on existing posts here, to follow me on Twitter, and to note what I've been reading online via Delicious. I also hope to return to Afrika T, so am not bringing the blog to a halt, just declaring a hiatus of indefinite duration...
Thank you for your support over the years, and, if you're a newcomer to the site, may it still prove valuable.
