About the Author
Born and bred in the South African coastal city of Durban, Keith Bain has a doctoral degree in drama. Now he’s quit academia to explore and write about the world. Besides his safari adventures in Kenya, his assignments for Frommer’s have taken him to India, Italy, Botswana, Romania, Slovenia, Ireland, and even out onto the streets of Johannesburg. Most recently, he′s been writing about the most beautiful city on earth—Cape Town, which he calls home. Pippa de Bruyn was born in Durban, raised in Johannesburg, and has now settled in Cape Town. She is an award–winning journalist and is the author of Frommer’s South Africa and the coauthor of Frommer’s India . Philip Briggs has been exploring the highways, byways, and backwaters of Africa since 1986, when he backpacked from Nairobi to Cape Town. In the 1990s, he 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, including the first dedicated guidebooks to Tanzania, Uganda, Ethiopia, Malawi, Mozambique, Ghana, and Rwanda. He contributes regularly to guidebooks by other publishers and to specialist travel and wildlife magazines including Africa Birds & Birding, Africa Geographic, BBC Wildlife, Travel Africa, and Wanderlust. He still spends about half his time on the road, accompanied by his wife, the travel photographer Ariadne Van Zandbergen, and the rest of it cloistered behind a keyboard at home in the uKhahlamba–Drakensberg region of South Africa. Lizzie Williams, who originally hails from the U.K., is a freelance travel writer based in Cape Town. She is the author of more than 20 guidebooks on African countries for Footprint, Bradt, the AA, and Dorling Kindersley, and regularly writes for magazines and travel websites. She is also the author of Frommer’s Cape Town Day By Day and the online guide to Kenya and Tanzania.

Keep in mind that this is aimed at the middle-of-the-road traveler who stays in standard or deluxe accommodations, with some luxury suggestions thrown in for a couple of splurges. An African safari is incredibly expensive so it's great to have candid feedback on places with budget constraints in mind. I also purchased Fodor's "Complete African Safari Planner" which is fine for an overview of the various African safari countries but not as strong for actual planning.
However, after reviewing the book upon my return, I would recommend this or hopefully a later edition as a resource for someone planning a trip to Tanzania & Kenya. I was able to review Lonely Planet & Fodor's Tanzania & East Africa editions prior to my trip and would really have like to include Frommer's in that grouping
