The extraordinary team of the Van den Berg family yet again pours their wealth of talent, and their decades’ worth of experience and knowledge into what could arguably be considered the definitive holistic guide for anyone interested in South Africa, be they tourists or locals. A mine of information without being the slightest bit overwhelming, this book explores the marvellous contrasts within the country, from the fast-paced metropolitan city rush of Johannesburg, to the supremely laidback wilds of the Eastern Cape; from the cultural melee of Cape Town, to the savannah plains teeming with wildlife. The facts provided in the book are beautifully clear whilst being highly informative. As well as their beautiful photographs, the authors include excellent factual details, easily absorbed and crisply outlined. This book is both an artistic work and an educational pillar.
