So, what is so special about the Tracks4Africa guide books? These are not guides written by armchair travellers or the personal experience of one person, but the combined experiences of a whole community of travellers. The T4A community travel far and wide – not by luxury bus or safari vehicle but on their own wheels. Sometimes they travel in groups and sometimes as lone rangers, but they always travel by motorbike, sedan or 4WD, therefore this guide is specifically aimed at self-drive travellers.
Content covered in the Self-Drive Guides: General information about each country; Safety and precaution; Trip planning; Navigation; Preparing your vehicle for overland travel; Communication; Border post red tape; Veterinary fences and Foot-and-mouth disease; Health; Pitfalls to renting a 4×4 with camping equipment; Things you should not go without.
