An extremely comprehensive, well written guide which provides essential information, guidance, cultural history and imparts the visitor with an excellent background knowledge of Zambia. As a frequent traveller, I found this to be the best travel guide which I have ever read. It maintains the high standard set by Bradt Travel guides and is thoroughly recommended for anyone who is interested in learning about Zambia and invaluable to potential travellers to the region.

I waited anxiously the day the 5th edition of Chris McIntyre's guide on Zambia would be available, as I am planning a longer trip to Southern African countries. And right I was, because this new edition takes fully into account the changes that have occurred in these last years, with detailed information on what has been planned and implemented until 2011. Packed with useful and detailed information, McIntyre has written, or better: updated, this edition with much heart and dedication. For instance, the description of many lodges is as detailed as it gets. I will choose this one guide for my travel in Zambia, preferring it over other sin other languages I have. Another useful tool by Bradt and Chris McIntyre especially, together with the other guides on neighboring countries (Namibia and Botswana) he has written.

This is the best travel guide on Zambia which I have seen. Whether you are a tourist or a Zambian, you will definately find it very informative and helpful! I love the info on local national monuments and history, as well as lodges. We always carry it along when we drive around Zambia, and it keeps us entertained!
