Lonely Planet should urgently review accuracy July 27 2010
By KP - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I would imagine the greatest concern for travelers in sub-Saharan Africa is Malaria. I paged through this at the bookstore and was about to purchase it, when my eye caught the map (apparently provided by WHO) on the distribution of malaria in Africa (page 23 - click on "look inside"). It suggests South Africa and Namibia has malaria, while Zambia, Malawi and Angola are Malaria-free. This is blatantly wrong (see for example [...]). The rest of the book seems okay and useful, but I'm not taking chances if they're so far off with something as simple as malaria risk.

KP's 2 stars was too generous Feb. 15 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I thought KP, author of the first review of this book, must have misread something when he or she pointed out the error on the malaria map page. That's just too glaring an error. Usually I find Lonely Planet guidebooks to be very good but I won't be buying this one. Thanks to KP for pointing this out.
Excellent resource except for the glaring map error Oct. 14 2013

Yes, the malaria map is wrong, and yes that is a quite big mistake when you're doing a book on healthy travel in Africa.

That said, this book is much more than its introductory maps. I've carried it (and its predecessor, the 1st edition) with me in multiple trips to Africa, and kept it on my bedside in two years living as an expat in the continent. It covers just about every health issue you could have in a very non-nonsense manner. It is, of course, not meant as a substitute to actual medical case, but it is a very useful guide to initially consult on what to do when bad things happen to you. Over the years, I've had the pleasure of consulting this book, among others, after getting stung by a sting ray in Guinea-Bissau, nearly slicing off my thumb in an "orange-peeling accident" in Guinea, and suddenly developing a toothache in northern Niger. On each occasion, it felt indispensible until I could get medical help.

If you are going to spend time in sub saharan Africa, this is the book to consult on health issues. Use when no doctor is available and look at it before going to a doctor. It covers just about everything you might run into health wise in Africa.
