Elephants in Zimbabwe
One thing I've noticed about most postcards from Africa: they name a country, but the pictures are most often of animals. Not that I wouldn't want to see elephants, lions, rhinos, hippopotami, zebras, giraffes, etc. in the wild. But all these animal photos give the impression that Africa is one big savannah, with lots of animals all over the place. What about the people? The cities? The terrain? Mount Kilimanjaro? I know postcards exist with non-animal images, but most of the ones I've received seem to feature animals.
