"An invaluable resource." The New York Times "Travelling independently to Namibia and exploring some of the remoter corners of this fascinating country by 4x4, we came to depend on the Bradt Guide. This was especially the case when we ventured into Bushmanland in the north east to visit the remote Khaudum National Park. Arriving late into Tsumkwe and unable to gain access to the lodge, we were forced to drive hard up the sand tracks into the gathering gloom, eyes glued to the GPS and totally reliant on the coordinates thankfully detailed in this comprehensive guidebook. We toasted Chris McIntyre with a few beers when we finally arrived at the Sikerti Camp!" Exodus "Best guidebook." The Sunday Times "The most detailed guide available." Wanderlust "Both thorough and authoritative." Travel and Leisure "By far the most thorough and informative." Travel Africa 'The best travel guide I've ever used' David Takacs
