"'Joy and heartache, despair and exhilaration, moments of sheer insanity... Alan Whelan captures Africa to a T' Peter Moore"


Tea-drinking is a ritual that binds people together. Alan Whelan was on a unique quest: to find the people at the hidden heart of Africa… and sit down for a nice cup of tea with them. On the 14,000-mile solo journey through Morocco, Mauritania, Mali and all the way to Cape Town across deserts and the toughest roads imaginable, he met sporting legends and ministers, peacekeepers and outlaws, and countless people who shared their last morsel of food with him.

Armed with little more than blind optimism, he experienced a jaw-dropping ride. Uplifting, insightful and funny, this is the story of one man’s determination through the most physically and emotionally challenging five months of his life.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Poor and tedious 3. Oktober 2013
Von Rolando - Veröffentlicht auf
I picked up this book because the cover seduced me: the back of a loaded, dusted bike, the road ahead, an intriguing title and lead. However, rather sooner than later I realized that this book would not fulfill any of its promises. The idea is simple, yet somehow bizarre: a man will travel along the western coast of Africa drinking tea and getting to know Africa, while riding a motorbike. Problem is, the author only forgot two things: he knows nothing about Africa and knows nothing about motorbikes.

This means that large chunks of the book are spent describing tedious and monotonous roads and landscapes, and that the poor bike constantly suffers the recklessness of a massivley underqualified rider for such an entreprise. At first, the anecdotes regarding the bike breaking down and having mechanichal issues were funny, part and parcel of every long bike quest. But when half the book is virtually shut down because the bike won't work due to some irresponsible driving, it's just plain stupid. Add to these the numerous injuries the author suffers for not being able to control the bike and you've got 3/4 of the book spent either on hospital or repairing the bike.

In comparison to the classic by Ted Simon, Jupiter's Travels, I can tell wou AB H-H doesn't offer any insight on each country, any comments on african history or personality whatsoever, that the encounters with locals are mainly trivial and that the author has an annoying knack for trying to give out lessons every time he discovers something. All in all, I pulled myself together and finished the book to find biased and terribly prejudiced comments on Namibia, and an almost comical anti-climax upon arrival on Cape Town.

This book could've been a jewel but instead it should really be used as a coaster. If you like adventure riding then do yourself a favour and buy the excellent aforementioned Jupiter's Travels by Ted Simon.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Sometimes entertaining how-not-to guide for motorbike touring 7. Juli 2015
Von Marc Luoma - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition
I found African Brew in the lending library at a lodge in Uganda. I picked it up because I have experience living and working in Africa and interest/experience in motorbike touring. Before I started reading I also hoped to live vicariously through the author's experience of traversing Africa via motorbike, something I would like to try but honestly probably never will.

I have to admit to being entertained by some of the passages, in a Jerry Lewis kind of way. The author's inability to plan for even the basics of this monumental journey ultimately become boring, then frustrating. The scenario repeats thusly: the author is unable to plan a basic route on decent roads, he gets into trouble on bad roads, his lack of riding ability puts him and/or the bike in the hospital, an unlucky stranger has to help him out, repeat. While his buffoonery is at first amusing, eventually you can't have empathy for someone who just can't learn. Having worked in 20+ African countries and lived in two, I can tell you that there are very good tarmac roads to be had, if you simply plan to use them. Even in 2007 there were cell phones and good GPS devices; the author simply refuses to make use of them. This lack of ability to identify with the author ultimately renders the book useless as a vicarious thrill: we would simply never be that inept.

Still, about 1/2 of the book has some entertainment value. So if you can read it for free, as I did, you can skip the more tedious parts and find some fun passages. If you want to be inspired for your next motorbike tour, though, seek out any motorcycling book by Peter Egan.
