The new, fourth edition of Bradt's Zimbabwe remains the most authoritative guide available to one of southern Africa's premier wildlife and cultural destinations. Zimbabwe-based author, tour guide and archaeologist Paul Hubbard picks up the mantle of this new edition, ensuring that it remains bang up to date and an ideal companion for everyone from wildlife enthusiasts and birdwatchers to adventure seekers and hikers. All the most recent developments in the rejuvenation of Zimbabwe's national parks are covered, with in-depth information on facilities, advice on itinerary planning as well as how to select a safari. Also included is a range of clear, comprehensive maps that is unique to this guide, with many not being featured in other publications. With increased business confidence in Zimbabwe, scores of new hotels and guest lodges have opened countrywide. Comprehensive and detailed accommodation listings cover everything from luxury safari camps to budget stays for younger travellers who arrive overland, heading for the fast flowing waters of the Zambezi gorge, plus details of en-route accommodation not found in other guides.
Recent years have brought significant change to Zimbabwe, notably with the fall of Robert Mugabe, resulting in increased investment and development in the tourism sector. Bradt's Zimbabwe is an invaluable aid for independent travellers as well as those on an organised tour. Many activities and off-the-beaten-track attractions countrywide are featured, plus historical and cultural sights such as the World Heritage-listed stone-built cities of Great Zimbabwe and Khami. Iconic Victoria Falls is also covered, and the mighty Zambezi River - perfect for adventure holidays - and the country's impressive range of birdlife which continues to draw enthusiasts year-round.
This new, thoroughly updated 5th edition of Bradt's Faroe Islands remains the only English-language guide to this isolated, unspoiled archipelago, home to Tórshavn, the world's smallest capital, and where there are twice as many sheep as people. Bradt's Faroe Islands offers detailed information about all 18 islands and the breathtaking landscapes which never fail to inspire visitors, from the highest sea cliffs in Europe at Enniberg on the island of Viðoy to the dramatic seascapes at Akraberg, the southernmost point of the Faroes. There's hands-on information about where to stay and eat, how to get around - be it by local ferry, helicopter or your own hire car - and what to see and do. Also included are details of how to reach even the remotest corners by bus using a travel card, the latest information on falling seabird numbers in the North Atlantic, and details of where to go sea angling and horseriding. Suggestions for visiting the island of Suðuroy are detailed, plus there are updated reviews of all accommodation, eating and drinking options. Fourteen clear and easy-to-use maps are also featured.
Written by expert author James Proctor, who has been visiting the Faroes since 1992, this latest edition includes all the most recent developments and provides all the information needed for a successful trip. Within the islands themselves, Bradt's Faroe Islands is recognised as the definitive source of information about the Faroes in the English language - and is widely respected as such. Whether you're visiting for the amazing birdlife, to walk some of Europe's least-known hiking trails or simply to sample real village life among the houses painted in a mêlée of reds, yellows and blues, Bradt's Faroe Islands is the perfect companion.
Boasting dozens of national parks and reserves, Uganda is a supremely diverse wildlife-viewing destination. Home to a wealth of forest and savannah mammals, as well as 1,000-plus bird species, here you can track chimpanzees, walk with white rhinos, get up close to shoebills, and take a safari in search of tree-climbing lions. But it's not just about the fauna : scale the lofty volcanic peaks of the Virengas, experience life among the Karamojong at a traditional manyatza, or simply enjoy some peace and relaxation at lovely lake Bunyonyi.
Now in its ninth edition, Bradt's Uganda remains the most comprehensive guide to this exciting country. Written by Africa expert Philip Briggs and Uganda specialist Andrew Roberts, it includes detailed background and freshly updates pratical information, plus a new 32-page colour wildlife section.
