Verleger: "Southern Africa – long
famous for the oldest and best managed game parks on the continent – is becoming increasingly popular as
an adventure travel destination. In the 1990s the number of visitors to the region has nearly doubled, to
more than 6.5 million tourists per year, as adventure travelers abandon traditional safari sites in Kenya
and Tanzania for the world-class national parks of Botswana and Zimbabwe, Zambia and Namibia. Favorable
political changes have inspired an increase in tourism to South Africa, and the pristine wilderness areas in
the smaller nations of Malawi, Lesotho, and Swaziland have become favorites with budget travelers in search
of adventure well off the beaten track. Adventuring in Southern Africa is a comprehensive guide to
the geography, culture, natural history, and adventure opportunities in these eight countries including: The
legendary areas of Victoria Falls, the Okavango Delta, the Zambesi River, Etosha, Kruger National
Park; The classic safari as well
as unconventional car, hiking, rafting, and canoe trips; The nuts and bolts of how to plan a trip, including
what to pack, how to adjust to local customs, what documents to take, and safari etiquette; A full range of
travel styles, from luxury tours to independent budget travel; How to stay healthy while traveling in
Africa; and much more. With appendices of safari tour operators and conservation groups, as well as a
helpful safari bibliography, Adventuring in Southern Africa is an essential tool for everyone
planning a trip to this spectacular and still unspoiled part of the world."
