This book is a must-read for anybody thinking of travelling to Africa, whether they be Peace Corps volunteers, reporters or tourists. Your health is the most important thing in your life, and getting sick in Africa is no picnic, and could kill you quite quickly. A little scratch on a Safari could easily develop into a full-blown infection, so you must know what to do. I highly recommend this book.

Recommends it for: Anybody going to Africa
This book is AWESOME. It tells you what medicine to get at the pharmacy anywhere, how much to get, etc etc. Best self diagnosing book ever. :)

A beat-up old car, a few dollars in the pocket and a sense of adventure. In 1972 that’s all Tony and Maureen Wheeler needed for the trip of a lifetime – across Europe and Asia overland to Australia. It took several months, and at the end – broke but inspired – they sat at their kitchen table writing and stapling together their first travel guide, Across Asia on the Cheap. Within a week th
