About This Book

Tourism in Africa is growing—the number of tourism arrivals increased from 37 million in 2003 to 58 million in 2009—and safaris are a key draw for visitors. Fodor’s The Complete Guide to African Safaris ebook provides the most comprehensive and engaging information on the most popular game-viewing regions in Kenya, South Africa, Botswana, Tanzania, and Namibia.
