About this book
The world's most acclaimed travel writer takes us on one last African journey, overland from Cape Town to Angola. He encounters a world increasingly removed both from tourist itineraries and the hopes of post-colonial independence movements, and with his gimlet eye and effortless prose lays it bare for the reader. '...the most gifted, most prodigal writer of his generation' Jonathan Raban
Having travelled down the right-hand side of Africa in Dark Star Safari, the author sets out this time from Cape Town, heading northwards in a new direction, up the left-hand side, through South Africa and Namibia, to Botswana, then on into Angola, heading for the Congo, in search of the end of the line.
