Africa On Six Wheels from the Author: Betty Levitov. "I think I get it," Betty Levitov's youngest student said, sitting on a porch in Harare, Zimbabwe.

I Think Of Africa from the Author: Anthony M. Whateley. This is the true story of a man who turns his childhood love of the great outdoors and his day dreams about wild and far-off places into a wonderful reality. At twenty, in 1965, he leaves his family in England to work in New Zealand, New Guinea, Australia and South Africa. Camping, hunting and fishing fill his spare time, often alone in wild remote country with primitive people. Returning to England five years later his love for Africa is confirmed. Eventually, Zululand draws him back to an exciting and often dangerous life in the bush. In Hluhluwe, the oldest game reserve in Africa, he becomes involved in wildlife management. Often tinged with humour, the story presents descriptions of life in the bush, his colleagues, zoological and botanical work, close encounters with big game, and problems facing managers and scientists. Settling down to share his love of the bush with his new wife and daughter, descriptions of Zululand come straight from his heart. In 1987, they leave troubled South Africa to settle in England. He works on a country estate with trips to Dartmoor and the Scottish Highlands, revisiting New Zealand and a changed South Africa. In 2005 they settle in Crete, Greece.

Surviving The Ride from the Author: Steve Camp. Mine-protected and mine-resistant, ambush-protected (MRAP) vehicles are today standard in the US, most major western armed forces and many other armies as a result of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. The South African Army was already routinely using mine-protected armored personnel carriers and patrol vehicles forty years ago even if they looked primitive and ungainly. A few years later, the South African Army had reached the stage where it could deploy entire combat groups into battle zones equipped with only mine-protected vehicles, including their ambulances and supply trucks. By then the mine-protected vehicles had also become effective for use in combat, rather than just protected transport, the Casspir being the chief example. More to the point, they saved countless soldiers and policemen from death or serious injury, and the basic concepts now live on in the various MRAP types in service today. The valuable lessons learned by the South Africans with their early designs of these combat-proven vehicles has led the country to become one of the global leaders in the design of MRAPs which are locally manufactured and exported around the world. Surviving the Ride is a fascinating pictorial account featuring more than 120 of these unique South African-developed vehicles, spanning a forty-year period, with over 280 photographs, many of which are previously unpublished.

Africa Overland from the Author: Siân Pritchard-Jones. Be vigilant when driving through Africa: camels are careless when crossing the road, and women carrying waterpots are little more watchful. So warn the authors of this fifth edition of Africa Overland. They also give updated information on each country’s political and security situation (Angola, Sierra Leone and Liberia are on the up; since this guide’s last edition, security in Western Sudan and Eastern Chad has turned sour); provide an expanded Route Outlines section including information on border crossings; and offer revised recommendations on vehicles including practical coverage on buying a vehicle, maintenance and driving. ‘This is the ultimate roadies' guide to traversing the wilderness of Africa. An indispensable guide to negotiating the unchartered perils of Africa's vast plains.’ Daily Express (UK)
