Overview

Four travel writers provide a compelling look at their road trip together from Cape Town to Cairo in this vivid travelogue. The writers' love of travel and their native Africa shines through as they relate the story of their transcontinental rite of passage. By presenting each landscape as they experience it, they contrast their journey with the "Cape to Cairo" myth—wide open spaces, plains brimming with game, desert nomads, forest pygmies—and discover that even in the 21st century it's still an unpredictable, pulse-quickening route. Every chapter is written in a style that evokes the unique flavor of each leg of the trip.
