Kompakt, vielseitig, differenziert, klasse Vom Etikett "Lonely Planet" sollte man sich nicht abschrecken lassen: Das ist kein Insider-Guide aus der Traveller-Kultur (die gibt es in Namibia und Botswana angesichts der Preise ohnehin nicht). Geografie und Kultur werden mit spannenden Hintergrundinformationen erläutert, der Safari-Teil ist trotz seiner Kompaktheit nicht oberflächlich und der Tonfall im Vergleich zum etwas betulichen Namibia-Handbuch von Iwanowski angenehm kosmopolitisch. Für Namibia-Reisende lohnt es sich besonders, da zwei Reiseziele einer jeden längeren Namibia-Tour in Botswana (Okavango-Delta) und Zimbabwe (Victoria Falls) liegen. In Botswana landeten wir allerdings mit einer der Karten im Nichts der Delta-Landschaft. Ungeschlagen ist die Übersichtlichkeit des Lonely-Planet-Konzepts. So schnell findet man sich in keinem deutschsprachigen Reiseführer zurecht. Aus der Lonely-Planet-Serie eines der besten Bücher, die ich bisher benutzt habe.

Absolute must have for visitors to Southern Africa. The book was our bible during our summer '99 holiday to Namibia, Botswana, Zambia and Zimbabwe. Without it we wouldn't have made it in the timeframe we had for sure. Be sure to buy the most recent version, 'cause these regions are developing faster than you can imagine. Due to the guide we discovered loads more country beauties than we would have. You'll absolutely get your money's worth.
