Seasoned travellers know that the journey is half the experience. It is in this spirit that South Africa by Road gives insight into the many national treasures and full-colour photographs and an interesting mix of side panels will inspire travellers to take to the tarred and gravel roads of South Africa. Each chapter gives an overview of a region's climate, flora and fauna, as well as history and heritage, and highlights the most noteworthy places.

Ideas for what to do in each location are similarly outlined, as are key activities, routes and trails. Customised full-colour maps in each chapter are marked with game reserves, national parks, nature reserves, hot springs and places of interest, and show toll roads, passes and national, secondary and dirt roads to help you plan your journey. A separate 46-page road guide and 11 street plans complete the useful map section.
