African Journeys

By Don Pinnock

For Don Pinnock, one of South Africa’s most accomplished travel writers, the lure of the unknown has been irrisistable. In tis collection of travel essays, he takes us on a series of journeys through Africa, following the footsteps of David Livingstone, wandering the backstreets of old Stone Town in Zanzibar, crossing the Central Sahara and puzzling over the magnificent rock-hewn churches of Ethiopia. His descriptions show a sharp eye for detail, a fascinating knowledge of the Africa’s history and a deep love of her people.

“A beautifully written and illustrated ramble through Africa. Difficult to put down once you’ve opened it.”

~ Hometalk, 2004

“He has a marvellous way with words and the illustrations are beautiful.”

~ Diane de Beer, Cape Times, 2004

“What a stunning book!”

~ Daily Dispatch, 2004

” A frank and wonderfully scribed book.”

~ Julia Paterson, Citizen, 2004

“Essential reading for anyone with a passion for Africa or an interest in travel writing.”

~ Getaway, 2004
