Biz Community Review – A mine of hidden gems

Road Tripping South Africa - 9781770265189

By: Henrie Geyser: motoring editor | 17 Feb 2014 07:40

Road Tripping South Africa provides some fascinating glimpses of hidden gems tucked away on old familiar routes and destinations, which might come as surprising delights even to seasoned travellers.

Compiled by individual travel writers, photographers, editors and authors the book is a mine of useful information about regions, must-see stop-overs and off-route detours, including old favourites such as the Cederberg, Route 62, the Garden route, Wild Coast, the Midlands, the Anglo-Zulu War battlefields, surfing spots, a golfing road trip and even a safari via Swaziland to the Kruger National park.

Simply written it takes the reader to eateries, sights, stopovers and back roads and place names seldom seen on regularly described trips. One of my favourite parts of South Africa is the renowned Route 62, which I have travelled on many occasions, but this book has shown me places that I never even knew existed.

Road Tripping South Africa is a recommended travel companion to anybody with a love of this country and its numerous treasures waiting to be discovered, as Hemingway wrote: “It is good to have an end to journey toward; but it is the journey that matters, in the end”.

It is published by MapStudio and the cover price is R250.
