Exploring more of Southern Africa, in a less than reliable 4x4 called Koos...
This is book 2 in the Travels With Koos Series, and continues the somewhat erratic travels of Max and Sue Hoppe and their dodgy car, Koos, seeing intriguing things and meeting fascinating people along the way.
This book offers another gentle armchair tour, which generally avoids the main roads. It is sure to appeal to those with a love of travel, exploration, wildlife, and particularly an appreciation of all that makes this part of the world unique and special.
It is part travel-journal, detailing routes, adventures, & escapades (always made unpredictable by Koos’ erratic behaviour) & part coffee-table photography. It is also part travel-guide, with useful maps & info, although it is intended more as a means of sharing their impressions of the places they pass through, on random, haphazard journeys, than as a definitive guide to the places covered.
It is a very practical as a gift, cost effective for a high quality photo book, and perfect for anyone from overseas who loves Southern Africa.
