5.0 out of 5 stars Africa by Road 10 July 2002
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
The authors of Africa by Road do a great job of presenting an overview to planning and undertaking an overland African trip. They assume the reader has a decent degree of common sense and independence and point the would-be traveller in all right directions without producing that 'hand-holding' feeling.
Anyone who needs to know where to start or what needs to be covered in planning an African Adventure shouldn't be without this guide. All the important aspects are covered and combined nicely with notes of personal experience and amusing anecdotes that accentuate the 'African feeling'.
Well worth the money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fab info for potential Gullivers 18 July 2002
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Well, what can I say. This is the(underlined) most comprehensive guide to overland travel in Africa I have ever seen. Everything from getting you kit together to amusing anecdotes that Charles and Illya had along the way.
Don't go driving to Africa without this book in your bag.
It is the essential guide.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential Reading!!!!! 17 May 2009
Format:Paperback
If you are traveling anywhere in Africa by road, you MUST take this guide!

The guide begins with a complete rundown of what you will need and what you wont need, what works and what doesnt, where to go and where to stay clear and so on.

The individual run-downs of each country contain exactly what you need to know, from fuel prices to road conditions and distances. As with all Bradt guides the recomendations for hotels are the most up-to-date you will find.

Very good, very detailed, an essential travel companion.

4.0 out of 5 stars Buying from this seller 3 Nov 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I had taken out this book from my local library and wanted to buy it thereafter. The seller sent me the book on time and it was in much the similiar condition as the book I'd borrowed from my own library: used but in excellent condition. It will be a good travel companion.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very handy 2 Jun 2013
By MrsBen
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I used this book for some research I was doing and got some valuable information. My advice would always to be to get the most up to date copy as you can as things change in Africa very quickly and information can become out of date. This along with other books and using the internet, is the only way of planning such a long and sometimes difficult journey.
