2.0 out of 5 stars First disappointment in 20 years
Regular reader and purchaser of this series. 5th visit to RSA. Round trip of 4000 km. Capetown-St. Lucia-Capetown.Found the contents and commentaries for off the beaten track travellers in this beautiful country shallow and quite useless. There are so many B&B treasures in the smaller towns, most well signposted and often splendid value. No mention of elementary geology...

2.0 out of 5 stars First disappointment in 20 years, 21 April 2014

This review is from: Lonely Planet South Africa, Lesotho & Swaziland (Travel Guide) (Paperback)
Regular reader and purchaser of this series. 5th visit to RSA. Round trip of 4000 km. Capetown-St. Lucia-Capetown.Found the contents and commentaries for off the beaten track travellers in this beautiful country shallow and quite useless. There are so many B&B treasures in the smaller towns, most well signposted and often splendid value. No mention of elementary geology which enhances any cross-country trip. Seriously wonder if the authors have travelled there extensively.

I bought this guide as I've owned a few other Lonely Planet guides, and I love how full of practical information they are.

They give you a lot of tips on how to travel around, what to expect, they mention little know facts or places, and give a thorough background on history, music, food, language, all of which contributes to a deeper understanding of the country and the people you are visiting.

Other guides show you a lot of pictures on glossy pages, which is nice if you are travelling with your imagination, however for actual travelling the LP guides are unbeatable, and this one about South Africa is no exception.

Difficult to get key information easily. While the hard copy is heavy it is much easier to scan through the index
