About this book

Paul Theroux sets off for Cape Town from Cairo – the hard way. Travelling across bush and desert, down rivers and across lakes, and through country after country – Egypt, the Sudan, Ethiopia, Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Malawi, Mozambique, Zimbabwe, South Africa – he visits some of the most beautiful landscapes on earth, and some of the most dangerous. It is a journey of discovery and rediscovery – of the unknown and the unexpected, but also of people and places he knew as a young and optimistic teacher forty years before.

Media reviews

"There is a reason why Paul Theroux is one of the most popular travel writers of our times. His gift for unlaboured yet rich prose enables him to paint a vivid and engaging picture of his journey from Cairo to Cape Town."
- Fiona Buckland, The Bookseller
