Publisher's Description

Tanzania has grown to be one of the top safari destinations in Africa. In this new edition of Northern Tanzania Africa expert, Philip Briggs, focuses solely on the northern region and Zanzibar, rather than the whole country. The guide includes extensive updates on the best accommodation in every price bracket and reflects the trend towards small exclusive eco-friendly camps in remote parts of the Serengeti and other reserves. There are new chapters on the North Coast and Usambara Mountains and in-depth coverage of Tanzania’s wildlife. Philip Briggs keeps readers up-to-date with the controversial proposal for a highway through the Serengeti.

Author Bio

Philip Briggs has been exploring Africa since 1986, when he spent several months backpacking from Nairobi to Cape Town, and first visited Tanzania. He has returned several times, researching and authoring the first Tanzania guidebook in 1992/3, and working on all five subsequent editions. He has visited more than two dozen African countries and written about most of them for specialist travel and wildlife magazines including Africa Birds & Birding, Africa Geographic, BBC Wildlife, Travel Africa and Wanderlust. He still spends at least four months on the road every year, usually accompanied by his wife, the travel photographer Ariadne Van Zandbergen, and spends his rest of the time in the sleepy village of Bergville, in the uKhahlamba-Drakensberg region of South Africa.

Editorial Reviews

'but here he has done an outstanding job for the North. His clear style, balanced judgments and immense knowledge alone make the book worth reading. Briggs’ love for Africa, and his deep respect for its people, inform and illuminate the whole experience. It goes without saying that both titles are supported by the immense apparatus of practical information we have come to expect from this publisher. This information includes all aspects of health and safety, which leaves the Rough Guide to Travel Survival in something of a limbo. Its coverage is universal, and no doubt very sound, but rather thin. Bilharzia, for example, the bane of many parts of Africa, gets a mere mention, where both Bradts give it a full page' - Travel Africa
