will list all guide books with a general opinion from travellers. We know
that it is a tremendous job putting it together so it is to be forgiven
if it is out of date!! Please note that as South Africa change extremely
fast all guide books 1998 and older are out of date. We also list other
useful reading material we know of.
When buying a guide book compare information and maps as well as updating and turnover time. With this I mean time from when the writer stops adding info till it is on the shelf.
hardcovered guide with great reputation. The only book on South Africa
to be updated yearly so far. Detailed information on every aspect on tourism.
Excellent maps as the writer is a cartographer. Train and bus schedules.
4th issue to come out November 99.
guide for a first issue. Easy to use. Reasonably priced. Detailed maps.
Next issue to come out 2000 or even later. Slightly outdated by now.
South Africa to Ethiopia. Highly rated by travellers who have used it.
The 40 odd page South African section is short, to the point and relevant.
Ethiopian section excellent.
