Description:

This new edition of On Route in South Africa takes an in-depth look at the myriad villages, towns and cities that combine to make South Africa such a fascinating country in which to travel. The focus is on the informative and often intriguing tales these places have to tell. Described in detail, toor are the origins of the localities and their names, their growth over the decades - and their present-day character and attractions. The book ignores political boundaries andr instead, divides the country into established and coherent geographic or demographic areas. Included are detailed regional maps, complemented by route directions within the text; the 37 chapters are arranged in logical sequence, beginning with Cape Town and radiating outwards.

Collectively, these divisions portray a land of immense diversity, one that ranges from the green and pleasant valleys of the Cape hinterland through the wind-blown western sandveld to the subtropical lushness of the east, from the great bushveld spaces of the northeast to the arid wildernesses of the northwest, from big and busy metropolises to tiny hamlets that sleep soundly in the sun. The canvas is broad, the picture illuminating. With its expanded text, its more than 500 photographs and 37 detailed maps, On Route in South Africa contains a remarkable wealth of information, whether it be for the dedicated or the armchair traveller, the tourist or the ardent historian.
