Format: 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.

HASH(0x95f14edc) out of 5 stars An excellent guide for the traveler to Africa 6 Oct. 2013

I'm only part-way through it, but I can already tell it's excellent. Just what a novice international traveler like myself needs. Loaded with tips on how to get the most bang for your buck and stay out of trouble when visiting the dark continent.
HASH(0x9682812c) out of 5 stars Good place to start 16 Feb. 2014

We were looking for an overview of travel in Africa, and The Rough Guide to First-Time Africa was exactly what we were looking for. We downloaded the kindle version. Each country represented has an entry providing a snapshot of the place, with additional links to attractions, red tape, and other information. We're planning a year-long travel sabbatical, and this guide has helped us begin building the framework of where we want to go and how long we might want to stay there. With this basic framework established using the Rough Guide, it has become easier to research more in-depth. The book also helped me feel more at ease that Africa is accessible, and not necessarily by signing up with a packaged tour.
HASH(0x979d5594) out of 5 stars Great for reading at home BEFORE the trip! 26 Jun. 2013

It's really tough to approach a continent the size of Africa in one book. This one is helpful in narrowing the playing field for first time travelers.
