Solid Gold
Gold prices may still be soaring, but here at Travel Africa magazine we believe that solid gold memories of the places weve visited are the best investment of all. To celebrate the 50th edition, our former editor Emma Gregg recalls a few precious moments from her African travels to date, and invites some of our esteemed contributors to do the same.
