Keeping In Touch in Africa



It depends on your location in Africa as to whether the communications are good or not.

In South Africa, for example, there is a well-developed communication infrastructure which means you can use your mobile phone easily as well as have access to pay phones and the Internet in towns and cities. However, in places like Ghana and Kenya, you may not be so lucky.
