Synopsis:

Meticulously researched and beautifully written by a South African native, Frommer's South Africa, 4th Edition, should be the discerning reader's only guide to a memorable trip to southern Africa, including the lion-rich reserves of Botswana and the wonders of Victoria Falls. It offers complete safari coverage, from what to wear to the top game lodges to tracking tips from professional safari trackers. But there's so much more:
  • An exploration of Cape Town, perhaps the world's most beautiful city, surrounded by mountains and sea, and the nearby picturesque Winelands country;
  • Whale-watching and eating seafood on the Western Cape;
  • Walking through carpets of flowers in Namaqualand plains after the first spring rains;
  • Rafting or surfing the churning waters of the Zambezi River.

Frommer's South Africa, 4th Edition, gives you all that and much more, from the best places to stay and eat to expert advice on getting there, getting around, and having the trip of a lifetime!
