After their fantastic motorcycle trip around the world in 2004, bike fanatics and best friends Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman couldn't shake the travel bug. The result was a 15,000-mile adventure throughout the entirety of the African continent on the backs of their trusty BMW motorcycles. Captured here in more than 100 exclusive images are the duo's most memorable experiences, from managing some of the toughest terrain in the world to meeting a bevy of friendly people and encountering astounding natural beauty. With images taken by Ewan and Charley themselves as well as by internationally renowned photographer Julian Broad, this beautifully illustrated edition vividly documents a trip of a lifetime.

I watched the DVD Long Way Around & loved it but this book about Ewan & Charlies 2nd great adventure was amazing. To read just a piece of what these 2 went through while biking in the most extreme places & conditions is amazing. The sights they have seen & the people they have met on this incredible journey are really inspiring. I really enjoyed the way the book was written, I don't even ride motorcycles but it made me want to go on some kind of travel adventure. Loved it!

I loved watching this trip and loved reading about it even more. I wish they would release a photo book of this trip like they did with Long Way Round. I've already gifted this and the photo book to several people. Anyone who loves adventure, or motorbikes would love this book.

I just finished this book and have read Long Way Round and this was the better of the two books. Better pacing and written better than the first. Charley, Ewan, and Claudio continue to ride from Scotland to the Southern tip of Africa and the adventures they have are amazing. If you like bikes and traveling, I recommend this title.
