Ex Africa semper aliquid novi.
Z Afriky přichází stále něco nového.
Welcome at the website of Via Africana CZ agency, focusing on tourism in Africa and in Arabic-speaking countries.
The site targets interested Czech public and aims at providing reliable information about destinations in Africa and the Arab world, primarily for travel purposes.
We present all the 67 African and Arabic-speaking countries and two overseas territories of European powers. In a special section called Protea we publish topical, well-informed news items on various, mostly tourism-related subjects.
The bulk of the site is in the Czech language. Organizations engaged in various aspects of the tourism business, interested in the Czech Republic and in Slovakia (there is no language barrier between the two nations) as source markets, are so offered excellent opportunities of addressing directly potential customers in the two Central European countries.
The website has continually a high ranking and is regularly updated.
