Formerly known as the Southern Africa travel guide, Solomon's guide has been updated annually and published without fail every year since 1971. This year, with the book entering its fith decade, a host of new information has been injected, giving it a burst of fresh ideas, an easy-on-the-eye layout and an even greater relevance to today's traveler. With such a bewildering amount of information available online, Solomon's guide gives travelers concise advice written from an informed personal perspective. During the collation of the 41st edition the guide's compilers have travelled to every corner of the Sub-continent, giving the title an unrivalled spontaneity and accuracy. The new look includes a brief background to every region and clear concise maps. Accompanying these are suggested sights to see and thrills to risk. There is a range of restaurants and shops, pubs and bars all with excellent standards for varying budgets. There is some history, some botany and some geology, all in an easily-digested format, and there is a smattering of fascinating facts-they call it the Wisdom of Solomon-and some entertaining gimmicky information to keep the reader entertained.
Solomon's guide breaks new ground in providing so much in the way of interesting good-to-know off beat snippets, along with a range of some of the best accommodation establishments in each area.show more
