Yes, the title of the book is simply ‘Africa’ but don’t let the title fool you, this book is far from basic and is packed full of useful information and advice. Penned by Mary Fitzpatrick, ‘Africa’ is perfect for travellers who have never visited Africa before and who may be struggling for ideas of where to go. Remember, Africa is incredibly vast, as the continent is home to more than 50 countries, so navigating your way around if you’ve never visited before can be a potential nightmare. This book however, is ideal as it will provide extremely useful advice on how to plan trips, it will tell you the best locations to visit, and it will also include information on which parts to avoid. There is even a section covering various pros and cons of the continent, i.e. the culture, health risks, risk of violence, the food, and so on. This African guide book is open and honest and talks about the good, the not so good, and the amazing, parts of Africa. Whether you need to know your visa requirements, whether you need help planning an itinerary, or whether you simply want a more in-depth look at Africa, this book is perfect.
