Zambia's top ten

What is your number one Zambian destination? Every visitor has a favourite. Some return time and again to the big-hitters such as Luangwa, Kafue or Lower Zambezi. Others seek out more off-the-beaten-track destinations. Not that Zambia really has a beaten track. That’s the beauty of the country: something new to discover in every corner.

Ethiopia's historical circuit

Ethiopia’s highlands have been home to civilisations of wealth and power over the past three millennia, and the riches they’ve left behind are still here for you to see. Matt Phillips, who has a long affinity with the country, is here to help you experience the best of it.

Kafue National Park

The M9 carves its way through the centre of Kafue, a ribbon of tarmac that neatly splits Zambia’s largest park in two. Yet it is largely devoid of traffic and the speed limit is low: think ‘elephant’ rather than ‘juggernaut’ and you’ll start to get the picture.

Kenya by design

Kenya expert and author Richard Trillo draws on his extensive experience to create a list of ideal destinations for you. Categories include: Kenya for first timers, Kenya for adventurers, Kenya for animal lovers, Kenya for families, Kenya for safari cognoscenti, Kenya for honeymooners, Kenya for those with a disability, and Kenya for those on a budget. 

Uganda's remarkable diversity

Uganda is where eastern and central African habitats meet. Jungles, bristling with birds and primates, merge with open savannahs stocked with big game favourites. Add the mighty Nile, the Rwenzori Mountains and Africa’s largest lake and you have too many choices. Don’t worry. Philip Briggs and Andrew Roberts, Bradt’s Uganda guidebook authors, are here to help.

Ghana - stimulating and diverse

Free from the packaged tourism found in other nations that share similar natural beauty and culture, Ghana is ripe for independent travellers looking for stimulating and diverse experiences. Philip Briggs, author of Bradt’s latest guidebook to the country, is here to help you get your planning started.

Essential South Africa

Thanks to its spectacular diversity, South Africa offers more holiday possibilities than any other nation on the continent. We asked Carrie Hampton, who has visited more than 200 safari lodges and dozens of beaches, to let us into the secrets of its best bush and beach destinations.
