Cover from Niger

This is my first cover from Niger, landlocked country in Western Africa named after the Niger River. Niger covers a land area of almost 1,270,000 km2, making it the largest country in West Africa. Over 80% of its land area lies in the Sahara Desert. The country's predominantly Islamic population of about 21 million mostly clusters in the far south and west of the country. The capital city is Niamey, located in Niger’s southwest corner.

Stamps on cover:
Pickers in the village (from set Traditional Living), issued on 08.08.2008.
The 56th Anniversary of the Proclamation of the Republic of Niger, issued on 18.12.2014.
2015 WWF - Striped Hyena (from set of four stamps), issued on 26.10.2015.
Ostrich - Struthio camelus (from set Fauna), issued on 09.11.2007.

Thank you  Jinesh!
