This highly praised guide is written by Chris McIntyre, a tour operator who specialises in southern Africa. His unbeatable knowledge of the country is augmented by ecologist Jonathan Hughes who describes how animals and plants survive the desert conditions. Namibia is the ideal country for a self-drive holiday, so this book is predominantly aimed at those travellers. Fifty clear maps and detailed listings of the lodges, guest farms and bushcamps make this guide the essential purchase.

Advice for the independent traveller encompasses everything from choosing first-class bushcamps, lodges and hotels to organising memorable safaris.

The wildlife of southern Africa is the major attraction for visitors to this popular region. This guide encompasses all countries south of the Zambezi and Kuene rivers: Botswana, Lesotho, Namibia, southern Mozambique, South Africa, Swaziland, and Zimbabwe. In the same format as the acclaimed Madagascar Wildlife it provides a colorful introduction to the mammals, birds, reptiles, and other wildlife, along with advice on how to make the most of a safari and even observing wildlife in everyday settings. The sheer range of habitats spanned by this region--grasslands, wetlands, desert, and bushveld--ensures that visitors have an almost unequalled opportunity for observing species in the wild, especially when the sealife and coral reefs of the coastline that fringes on two oceans are included. Accessible, comprehensive, and beautifully illustrated with around 300 photographs, this is a travelers' companion that will appeal both to the first-time visitor and the serious naturalist.

* Stay with indigenous tribes in the Amazon * Dog-sled with the Inuit in the Arctic * Walk the Songlines of central Australia with Aboriginal guides * Learn African drumming in Ghana or how to dance salsa in Cuba Bored with the same old package tours and identikit resorts? Then this book is your key to a whole new world of inspirational holidays. Throughout Asia, Africa, the Americas and the Pacific, tribal people and rural villagers are setting up their own tours - and they want you to visit. These holidays are a better alternative. Better for you, with real insights into local life and culture in some of the most beautiful places on earth; better for the people you visit, leaving them with more money and supporting local development projects; and better for the environment, offering sustainable alternative incomes for communities living in threatened ecosystems. Compiled by Mark Mann for Tourism Concern, Europe's leading ethical tourism organization, this updated version of The Community Tourism Guide is still the only guide to this type of holiday. It not only explains the principles of 'community-based tourism', but also lists hundreds of guesthouses and tours, with full contact details to help you arrange your next holiday.

Ross K. Dowling and David Newsome present an original, substantial and much-needed contribution to the field to further our understanding of geotourism in theory and practice. This Handbook defines, characterizes and explores the subject through a range of international perspectives and case studies, identifying geotourism as a rapidly emerging form of urban and regional sustainable development. With extensive case studies from North and South America, Europe, Asia, Australasia and Africa, this global Handbook examines and explains the relationship between geology and tourism. Thematically arranged sections cover the relationship of geology with tourism, sustainability and society, geotourism in urban areas, and interpretation and education strategies. The final two sections assess geotourism's impact through wide-ranging case studies of UNESCO global geoparks and geotourism in a range of countries. The eminent academics and practitioners demonstrate how geotourism is the future for engaging the public and protecting geosites, as well as emphasising the importance of sustainability. An essential resource for students and educators, this Handbook provides an international perspective for those interested in tourism, environmental geography, ecology and geology. Written with practitioners in mind, this book reveals how tourism professionals and geologists should each know about the nexus of their subjects.
