Africa Overland ITMB Cairo to Cape Town
There are three possible routes to traverse Africa top to bottom. From the east, the only route is via Egypt and Sudan to Ethiopia and East Africa. The route through Algeria, known as the Hoggar (or Haager) route is next, with the route through Morocco to West Africa third. Traversing Africa is one of the great adventure trips in the world but life consists of determining acceptable risks and doing one's best not to be hit by a Number 10 bus by liking the wrong way when crossing a London Street. This atlas portrays the eastern route from Cairo to Cape Town in over a hundred pages of maps. It covers 14 countries and gives advice on particularly sensitive travel areas, such as between Egypt and Sudan. The great advantage of this book is that it is compact and easy to carry, as well as being as accurate as possible.
