More Back-Road 4 x 4 Trips (e-Book)
Our hope is that, with you holding this book right now, you already know us – and our philosophies – from our first book, Our Top 4×4 Trips. We had such fun doing it, and clearly so many of you off-road enthusiasts had just as much fun reading it, that we decided to do it all over again. So we’ve just completed the immensely tough job (twist my arm, twist my arm!) of exploring South Africa – and Mozambique – to bring you our insights and share our experiences. We’d like to prise you off that tar … get you back onto gravel and stones and sand. And we trust that the maps, words and pictures in this, our second book, will inspire you to do just that. This book, with its 10 new trips, presents a launch pad for your own back-road adventures, to be moulded and adapted entirely to suit you.
We had such fun with our first book, we decided to do it all over again. In this book, we embarked on 10 new trips, venturing a little further afield via remote northern Kruger to Mozambique. We explored new national parks, from Namaqua, Addo and Karoo to Marakele and Mapungubwe; we marvelled at the Motlatse-Blyde Canyon and wound up 11 wondrous Eastern Cape passes; revisited Lesotho; trundled across the Richtersveld Transfrontier Park. Throughout we’ve tried our best to give you sage advice. The roads we expressly chose, those we avoided, what we loved en route, what stuck in our gullet. Our brilliant moves, our mistakes, what we got wrong and what we got really, really right (and believe me, we got better and better each time). This book presents a launch pad for your own back-road adventures, to be moulded and adapted entirely to suit you. The aim is that you benefit from our own experience.
