Intrepid traveller and author Marielle Renssen and her two travel partners have been kept busy exploring and writing the sequel to their first book 'Our Top 4x4 Trips' ? 'More Back-Road 4x4 Trips'. The particular focus of Marielle's second book is personal experience: each trip has been personally driven, and the accommodation recommendations tried and tested - with opinions given frankly and honestly. The idea is that other travellers learn from the experience gained by Marielle and co-authors -- the roads they expressly chose, those they avoided; what they loved en route, what stuck in their throats; their brilliant moves, their regrettable mistakes. Passion plays a big part in this book, too. The day-by-day trip descriptions are detailed, accompanied by striking colour images and maps with GPS waypoints for use in conjunction with any navigation system. There are bird, flower and tree lists; information on geology, historical and cultural aspects; even technical requirements, packing lists and border formalities, where relevant. The authors have also proved that you can tackle rugged 4x4 trails, and bump and sway across tens of thousands of kilometres (as they have done), yet still have your comforts at the end of the day - that is, a hot shower, flush toilet and a fridge for those cold beers. By steering you in the right direction and guiding you through the potential pitfalls, this book, with its 10 new trips, allows you to learn from the authors' experience. It presents a launch pad for your own back-road adventures, to be moulded and adapted entirely to suit you. Routes include Southern-Central Mozambique, West-central Lesotho and the greater South Africa.
