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.

“In 2010 new ablusion blocks were erected at the campsite.” - Mietsie Visser, 2012/04/11
“The site is under trees on the banks of the river Khwai but is infested by a troop of well fed vervet monkeys. The two ablution blocks have flush toilets but are sadly in need of renovation which could be coming soon.” - David Clack, 2009/02/01
