Philip Briggs

Philip has been exploring the highways, byways and backwaters of Africa since 1986, when he spent several months backpacking on a shoestring from Nairobi to Cape Town. In 1991, he wrote the Bradt guide to South Africa, the first such guidebook to be published internationally after the release of Nelson Mandela. He has since written a number of guides to countries including Tanzania, Uganda, Ethiopia, Malawi, Mozambique, Ghana, Somaliland & Rwanda. He still spends at least four months on the road
