Exploring the backroads in a four-wheel-drive vehicle, far from crowded beaches and noisy cities, is one of South Africa's fastest-growing recreational activities. Whether it is the mountain roads of Lesotho or the burning sands of the Kalahari, the wide-open spaces of the Southern African interior offer the chance to enjoy unparalleled scenic splendour, abundant wildlife and friendly communities. In "Overland Through Southern Africa" the reader is taken on 14 overland trips through South Africa, Lesotho, Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe and Zambia. Each route is illustrated, and contains detailed information on points of interest. With sections on the choice of vehicle (two-wheel-drive or four-wheel-drive), what to take, rules of the road, health, communications and map-reading, this book provides a visual reference tool for planning an overland safari.
