These guides were not written by armchair travellers and they are not about the personal experience of one person, but are the culminated experiences of a whole community of travellers.
The Tracks4Africa community travels far and wide and loves to explore Africa on their own wheels. Sometimes they travel in groups and sometimes as lone rangers, but they always travel by motorbike, sedan or 4WD. Therefore these guides are specifically aimed at self-drive travellers.
These guides provide all the information one might need to prepare for an overland trip, information on travel regions, facilities available in towns or destinations as well as camping and lodging places to stay.

Livingstonia Mission : “If the church warden is around he will take you on a guided tour of the church. ” - Karin Theron, 2014/08/28
Mushroom Farm Lodge : “Mushroom Farm has the most beautiful view from the Livingstonia plateau on Lake Malawi. It is very popular amongst backpackers and the campsite is not really suitable for self-drive campers. ” - Karin Theron, 2014/08/28
Mlambe Beach Lodge : “The lodge has a beautiful setting on Lake Malawi but the facilities are a bit run-down.” - Karin Theron, 2014/08/28
Mlambe Beach Lodge Campsites : “The campsite is basically just an open piece of ground at the back of the lodge. Campers don't have a view of the lake but can use the lodge facilities. The lodge has a beautiful setting on the lake but this doesn't qualify as an upmarket lodge. ” - Karin Theron, 2014/08/28
