More About the Author



African travel specialist Philip Briggs has been exploring the highways, byways and backwaters of the world's most challenging and exciting continent since 1986, when he spent several months backpacking on a shoestring from Nairobi to Cape Town. In 1991, he wrote the Bradt Guide to South Africa, the first such guidebook to be published internationally after the release of Nelson Mandela.

Over the rest of the 1990s, Philip wrote a series of pioneering Bradt Guides to destinations that were then - and in some cases still are - otherwise practically uncharted by the travel publishing industry. These included the first dedicated guidebooks to Tanzania, Uganda, Ethiopia, Malawi, Mozambique, Ghana and Rwanda (co-authored with Janice Booth), all of which are now in their 3rd, 4th, 5th or 6th edition.

Philip has visited more than two dozen African countries, and written about most of them, whether it be for guidebook publishers such as AA, APA-Insight, Berlitz, Camerapix, Dorling Kindersley, Frommers, Struik-New Holland and 30 Degrees South, or for specialist travel and wildlife magazines including Africa Birds & Birding, Africa Geographic, BBC Wildlife, Travel Africa and Wanderlust.

He still spends at least four months on the road every year, and spends his rest of the time battering away at a keyboard in the sleepy dorp of Bergville, in the uKhahlamba-Drakensberg region of South Africa. He is married to the travel photographer Ariadne Van Zandbergen and lives with three dogs and a cat. When not obssessing over some or other aspect of African history, culture, wildlife or travel, Philip's interests include music, reading and walking.

Format: Paperback
Whilst this travel guide appears to be extremely up-to-date and easy to carry I am disappointed that the many maps do not have the International Airport marked and finding a route to my hotel is not easy. Not helped by the fact that my 4 star hotel is not reviewed or marked either - just the road. I have therefore had to use the internet to print off routes. The Top Ten attractions are - of course subjective and most I would not wish to visit [I don't go to Africa to shop in a mall for example. The small pull-out map is not very helpful either due to scale. NOT RECOMMENDED. I probably will not even take it with me!

Can be a little confusing 8 Mar. 2014
By Summer Thorn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
We purchase a lot of eyewitness travel books before going out of the country, however this one was a little disappointing. The layout of it is very bad. It seems like you are constantly flipping around to find what you are looking for because they don't really have it organized well. For instance, in the winelands they didn't have a single section for the best winelands. You'd have to flip to different top 10 lists around the book to try to find good wineries to go to. Then you come back to the book the next day and finding a winery that you found the day before would be confusing.

Does that make sense? I hope not - because that's how you'll feel if you order this travel guide.

Excellent Book 27 Jan. 2013
By H. Rothschild - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I went to Cape Town in December and used this guide. It was wonderful. It had excellent guidance on the best things to do and had great suggestions on places to eat. A must have for any trip to Cape Town.

Great book for navigating Cape Town 24 Dec. 2013
By Nick - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
First off - Cape Town is an amazing city and I highly recommend it. It's pocket sized, has good maps and will help you optimize your time in Cape Town. The DK Eyewitness Top 10 books have been my friends on 6 continents and has helped me make the best use of my limited time and ensure I see and do amazing things. Like all travel books, make sure you double check on the web before you head out. But a fantastic book!

ok guide 21 Mar. 2014
By Andrew E. Williams - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is an OK guide for sights for those who are not used to the city. The maps aren't that detailed though. Most "M" type roads are not shown in the maps for large areas of the city. At first I tried to depend on this and had some troubles. I ended up buying a book of maps at the Kirstenbosch gift shop that worked a lot better.

Great easy to manage book on the sites in Cape Town 13 Nov. 2013
By Lady Luck - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Great easy to carry book on the best sites in Cape Town and the winelands. The pictures are wonderful, good maps of the area...wish there had been a full map of Africa available as we traveled to Cape Town from other areas. The info was condensed and to the point.
