Be inspired to hop back into your car and travel the roads less travelled when you read ROAD TRIPPING South Africa, by Fiona McIntosh and published by MapStudio. Featuring 20 iconic road trips, the two things that all these routes have in common is that they will take you on quiet, scenic back roads – to places you might not know even exist – and they are all perfectly manageable in a normal sedan.

To make planning as easy as possible, the book divides each route into manageable sections that include detailed maps, distances, driving times, highlights, regional tourism contact details, useful websites and suggestions on where to eat, drink and stay. Other useful information you will find is pet-friendly ratings, child-friendly ratings, low-slung vehicle-friendly ratings, don’t miss features, emergency numbers, the best time to visit these areas, top tips, and day-by-day descriptions. Fall in love with road tripping all over again when you discover new and interesting places along roads that you’ve never journeyed before.
