Anyone who arrives in a country of Africa must begin, necessarily, from its capital. And indeed our journey again, past the Atlantic Ocean, from Cape Town, the legislative capital of South Africa. You just specify it because we are the only country in the world that has three capital cities: Cape Town, where you will find the Parliament, Pretoria, which is the seat of Government, and Bloemfontein, where the judiciary is exercised.
Socio-economic level and political, all southern Africa affected by the presence of South Africa because it is the State economically richer and more industrialized. It also follows a strong hegemonic policy so that its economic and military influence extends directly over the entire region. In any case we will look into this soon because, having to go to the North, Southern Africa will get through practically all. Before Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe, and Mozambique to Malawi, a small country landlocked, but with a large lake (Lake Malawi). We continue our journey up North again, passing through Tanzania, Kenya and enter finally into Ethiopia to the capital, Addis Ababa.
Said so it seems easy, but we must consider that the system of communication of the African continent is very precarious because it still is based in large part on the one built by the colonial powers. The efforts by individual States to reinforce national road networks haven't gotten great results and, therefore, remain insufficient and inadequate today. It is not only a problem related to the vastness of space to cross, but at their difficult conditions being divided between desert and Rainforest. A scenario hard to deal with for the development of these areas, but actually for those who, like us, look in an African adventure travel...

supports the campaign to Cesvi
"Food Right Now" and Cesvi's projects on the theme of the right to food.
To date, 870 million people worldwide suffering from hunger, 1 person on 8 failure to access to adequate amounts of healthy and nutritious food weakens the forces needed to work and build a different future.We are aiming to increase Cesvi's availability of food and access to nutritionally adequate food and improve the conservation of food.
Our interventions are aimed at making people more autonomous, so that they have more need of us. Cesvi struggle for years against world hunger through development projects in the South and awareness-raising campaigns and education in the world today, with its expertise in food safety, launches new campaign Food Right Now (www.foodrightnow.it) to educate and sensitize citizens on the subject of combating hunger and on the promotion of the right to food for all.
But we must act now, because hunger doesn't wait. In that way? Promoting adequate agricultural production, improving food preservation techniques, ensuring access to water and to health services, developing infrastructure and working on recovery of traditional cultures.
There are so many things we can do. But we also need you. Together indeed can we really change things.
