For some reason Cape Town grabs all the limelight in the travel book world. Yes, it certainly deserves the attention as it, and the surrounding Western Cape region/Garden Route/wine route is just stunning. But poor old Durban. The poor relation it would seem. There are so few guide books for Durban and in my view this is the best of what's available for Durban and KwaZulu Natal.

It has great photos and is well worth the purchase. I've found out all I need to know for a few days in Durban and travels to Greytown, Lesotho and Port Shepstone. Of course it can't cover every tourist attraction and every point of interest but it is a great starting point.

The history section is succint and very interesting for what you'd expect in a travel book.

South Africa is a stunning country with a troubled past and possibly a troubled future - but well worth the effort. The Rough Guide will help you make the most of your trip. Recommended

This is the 3rd Rough Guide I have owned for South Africa, Lesotho & Swaziland and its also my favourite.
I love the fact that its full colour and contains lots of photographs.
We travel with a young family and my 5 year old son loved looking at the pictures and enjoyed using the wildlife guide on our visits to the Game Parks.
The information was up to date and relevant for pretty much everything and gave us lots of ideas of what to do on our trip and information about the majority of places we visited.
We have visited Lesotho, toured in and around Durban and the Hluhluwe/Imfolozi Game Park, and done the Midlands Meander all with the help of the Rough Guide.
Having tried other publishers of travel guides I have to say I find Rough Guides the most suitable for us as a family as I find some others are biased more towards Backpackers.

It's such laborious work to 'read' this on a kindle. The maps are not easily accessible. I wanted a Bradt guide ideally but settled for this as an alternative but I wish I had bought the more informative and much easier to use Lonely Planet.

Very good for accommodation and eating but could have been more informative about places to go and see. The main and obvious sites where covered but could have done with more easily found other places like museums, galleries etc.

I have given this top rating because it was extremely comprehensive and, in fact, the only source which I found which covered both of the two areas of South Africa that we visited.

It was very useful both in Mpumalanga and the Eastern Cape, especially the latter. This was because this region is not as popular a tourist region as others yet was stunningly beautiful and vastly underrated as shown by its emptiness. Also, in this region, there was a lack of tourist information generally; except brouchures from the hotel so the book complemented this meager resource admirably.

Masses of information with street plans and maps of smaller scale covering larger areas.
