Synopsis

Synopsis

Tourism in Africa is growing—the number of tourism arrivals increased from 37 million in 2003 to 58 million in 2009—and safaris are a key draw for visitors. Fodor’s The Complete Guide to African Safaris provides the most comprehensive and engaging information on the most popular game-viewing regions in Kenya, South Africa, Botswana, Tanzania, and Namibia.

Competitive Advantage:
Other guides cover part of the process, but only Fodor’s deals with all aspects of the planning, picking, and preparing for safaris around Africa.

Expanded Coverage:
Travelers will find in-depth descriptions that enable them to determine which African safari destination is best for them, in addition to insider advice and practical tips on everything from packing to camera lenses and bug sprays. We cover the best local and international safari tour operators with information on how to create a dream safari, whether it's a luxury, bespoke experience, or a rustic in the bush excursion. Plus, we reveal the best beaches for must-needed post-safari relaxation.

Illustrated Features:
 Special Fodor's Features throughout the guide provide rich information on how to dress, types of lodging and vehicles, different African tribes, climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro, and African culture. The best eco-lodges are highlighted for each country. Gorgeous photos throughout, many by Fodor's travelers, provide endless inspiration.

Indispensable Trip Planning Tools:
Find out everything you need to know to witness the Great Migration in Kenya and Tanzania. Discover details about animals and birds, including the Big Five, with checklists for each country. Consult Fodor’s hierarchy of safari parks in each country, with detailed lodging options, and compare tour operators with an easy-to-read chart broken down by experience, expertise, and clientele. Internet resources, a timeline, packing lists, must-ask questions, and information on what to expect after arrival are provided in easy-to-use, compact features.

Discerning Recommendations: 
Fodor’s The Complete Guide to African Safaris offers savvy advice and recommendations from local writers to help travelers make the most of their time. Fodor’s Choice designates our best picks, from hotels to restaurants. “Word of Mouth” quotes from fellow travelers provide valuable insights.

About Fodor's

Fodor's - Fodor's The Complete Guide to African Safaris
Born in 1905 and raised in Czechoslovakia, Eugene Fodor joined the U.S. Army’s psychological-warfare branch during World War II. He emerged a decorated war hero, thanks to his leadership in the liberation of Prague and Pilsen.

Multilingual and with extensive travel intelligence, Fodor began working for the CIA during the Cold War. His publishing career began in 1936 when Fodor created the first modern guidebook and many of his guidebook writers were undercover CIA agents. Fodor revolutionized the travel publishing industry, inspiring new generations to explore the world around them. An American, a Hungarian, a world citizen, a CIA agent, a war hero, a New York Times best-selling author, and an entrepreneur—Eugene Fodor was the spy who loved travel.
