3.0 out of 5 stars Good introdution but no depth, 27 May 2011
This review is from: The Rough Guide to First-Time Africa (Paperback)
This is a short intro into each country and good to have the overall highlights but far too top level of any holiday planning to a particular area. Unless you are backpacking around the whole country or traveling through for a number of weeks I would bypass this and go straight to the country guide. I ended up buying the South Africa guide as well so could have saved money by not bothering with this one.

Thanks for the positive review anyway - hope you didn't feel misled by any sales info?

It's definitely a pre-departure guide, as we cover the whole of Africa in 450 pages. But I'd hope the detailed planning chapters were helpful as well as the few pages on the Republic of South Africa itself.

We have a blog where you can make further comments, or ask questions, at firsttimeafrica dot wordpress dot com. Hope you find it useful!
