leading African news website for professionals

A pioneer on the web since 1996, Africa Intelligence is the leading news site on Africa for professionals. Published in both English and French, it has become an international reference thanks to the strength of its exclusive reporting.

With five confidential news publications –Indian Ocean Newsletter, West Africa Newsletter, Maghreb Confidential, Africa Energy Intelligence and Africa Mining Intelligence – the Africa Intelligence portal has been reporting the activities of the men and women who shape Africa's political and economic landscape for over 20 years. We take the long view to decode relations between political players and business networks

Africa Intelligence is published in Paris by Indigo Publications, an independent press group created in 1981 that depends entirely on revenues from subscriptions and the sale of individual articles. As an advocate of total editorial independence, it accepts no advertising, conducts no consulting work, and only has individual shareholders.
