This is my favorite picture in all the photos that this beautiful little guide contains. It is a rhino, an animal that reminds me of ancient times that are gone forever. If everything continues the way it is going now, soon these formidable beings are going to disappear too.



This is the cover page of the book I read. I also loved this picture that shows two lions captured in a moment that can be very cutely interpreted by human brains. A beautiful picture at any rate.

So helpful for our upcoming trip!

As usual I've found it quite useful for background info to help with planning the trip. I've taken a few of their suggestions, but not on accomodation, just on things to do. The test is always once you get there (although this edition is a little dated).

While it isn't perfect, this guidebook has been so helpful as I live and travel in South Africa. It continues to be a very helpful resource guide. I think my strongest complaint is that it does not give enough information about nature-based activities/hikes, etc.

I consider these books to be without equal when it comes to travel guides. This book, however, was not as well written as other Lonely Planet guides I have used in the past (Turkey, Egypt, etc....)
