An all-embracing practical guide! A real inspiration to travellers wishing to see the world's most exotic continent by road. Our trip was enhanced by Charlie's creative suggestions and advice and my only regret is that we didn't have time to see all places he suggested.

The authors of Africa by Road do a great job of presenting an overview to planning and undertaking an overland African trip. They assume the reader has a decent degree of common sense and independence and point the would-be traveller in all right directions without producing that 'hand-holding' feeling.
Anyone who needs to know where to start or what needs to be covered in planning an African Adventure shouldn't be without this guide. All the important aspects are covered and combined nicely with notes of personal experience and amusing anecdotes that accentuate the 'African feeling'.
Well worth the money.

If you are planning a trip into Africa, whether that be on foot, by bicycle, motor bike or a vehicle, do not leave without your copy of Africa by Road.
It is an excellent source of information in regard to travelling Africa with some excellent tips on where to stay, what to do, what to avoid and a brilliant insight into the going ons of this so called "dark continent!"
Both authors seem to touch on a personal point of view whilst travelling Africa and it becomes evident in their anecdotes on Africa, its people, its wildlife, its culture and its funny moments - look out for the grey blocks hosting some funny stories on their personal travel experiences.
I personally would not leave without it!
