Road Tripping Namibia [Book Review]

I reviewed MapStudio’s Road Tripping Namibia adventure map book which covers 15 iconic road trips, all perfectly manageable in a normal sedan. Co-authors Fiona McIntosh, Shaen Adey, Willie Olivier, Ron Swilling, Katy Sharpe and Nick Buys, all together have road tripping experience in Namibia, Botswana, Cape Town and Zimbabwe. They did a great job showcasing the highlights of Namibia with great overview maps and stunning photographs in this 184-page paper back cover.

What I like most about the book is that for each route you can map your driving distance and driving time, look at the highlights and check the driving conditions. There are also child-friendly ratings, logistics, low-slung vehicle ratings and emergency numbers. All the important information you need to know for hustle-free road tripping in a foreign land.
