Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

SAMANTHA REINDERS has a master's in visual communication from Ohio University. Being a photographer has allowed her to chase penguins, fly on Air Force One, swim with sharks, and meet interesting people--from businessmen to homeless men, and from grannies at a bake sale to a triple murderer behind bars. Reinders' work has appeared in U.S. News & World Report, Time, the New York Times, L'Express, Der Spiegel, Park Avenue, Chicago Tribune, andLondon's Financial Times. In 2005 she moved back to her native South Africa--and the dust roads that feed her soul.

Visually Accessible 8. Februar 2014
Von Cynthia - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
As you would expect from National Geographic the pictures in “South Africa” are stunning. I haven’t used a Lonely Planet guide to South Africa though I have used ten plus of their other guides so I’d like to do a quick comparison between Lonely’s and Nat Geo’s format and approach to a travel guide.
*Nat Geo is a more narrative approach to destinations listing what the country/area has to offer as opposed to Lonely’s sound bite approach, meaning Nat Geo has less of a mash up of websites and phone numbers. They’ve solved this by separating that info into a 30 page listing in the back of the book. Because of this Nat’s lay out is less crowded which makes the pictures stand out more plus the pictures are usually larger and are set off by background colors whereas Lonely tends to use uniform white as a background.
*Nat Geo doesn’t provide specific trips with a suggested number of days it would take to experience them but they do break the country into regions and list and describe what’s offered at each one.
*One of the most outstanding features of Nat’s approach is the more complete sections of the history and culture, in all about 40 pages, vs. Lonely’s typical three to five pages of history and culture.
*Portability: Nat’s book measures 8.5’ by 5.25’ whereas Lonely’s books typically are about 5’ by 7.75’.

Here are some things that Nat Geo and Lonely have in common.

*Like Lonely Nat’s pages are color coded by region which makes it easy to quickly find the section you’re interested in.
*They both also provide an overall map of the country as well as detailed maps of specific regions.

To sum up Lonely’s guides probably drill down to more specific info concerning websites and phone numbers however Nat Geo guide is more visually accessible because of the gorgeous pictures, the often colored backgrounds that set the pics off and because they’ve separated out the website and phone info to the back of the book there’s a less crowded feel. Visually Nat Geo wins hands down.

Quality and what you would expect from a National Geographic Travel Guide 20. Januar 2014
Von A Customer - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
I ran a boutique travel company, specializing in Russia and the former Soviet Union. Therefore I know what I like in travel guides:

-Ease of Use
-Smart Tips
-Comprehensive recommendations without being overwhelming
-Background necessary to understand a particular attraction, and hopefully a particular culture.

National Geographic South Africa fits all of these requirements.

It is an ideal travel guide for someone planning a visit to South Africa, combining urban and nature. Given that it's National Geographic, there's lots of information of an overview nature on South Africa's nifty wildlife.

I would probably combine it with a Lonely Planet guide for more specific recommendations on hotels and restaurants.

Decent guide. But... 3. Februar 2014
Von Ammy_Evaluator - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
I guess I've been spoiled by the Lonely Planet Discover series, in that I have begun to expect so much more from travel guides.

So much so that even a very decent guide like this one does not thrill me.

I found fault with the conventional styling, dryness of the text, and the lack of detailed itineraries to help you plan.

In short, this book read more like a social studies lesson than a fun exercise in planning an exciting trip.

If you want to see what I mean, simply take a "Look Inside" tour of a Lonely Planet Discover book (esp. the ones for Turkey, China, and Japan.)

Happy Travels!

All the practical questions answered. (Still, I wish for more pics!) 20. Februar 2014
Von L. Perry - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
Disclaimers: This is one of those guide book reviews that I am writing WITHOUT having been to the country in question. Please bear that in mind.

However, I really like this book. It's NatGeo so, of course, the photographs are solid. There's tons of local interest (in print and in photo) and all the Big Practical Questions get answered (where to stay, what to do, what to do, "how do I get to the place in the photo?")

Base on this book, I would check out future NatGeo guides (though I'm typically a Lonely Planet fan).

Enjoy your trip!
(I always want more photos, though.)

More of an overview book, not very specific 27. Mai 2014
Von Mdwebb - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
We just returned from 3.5 weeks in South Africa, traveling by rental car while there. Bought this in addition to the Rough Guide and used the Rough Guide way more. This book only provided skim views over each region, and since we mostly stuck to a particular region in the country, it was limited for us. I was surprised and disappointed that as a Nat Geo publication, there was no animal section to consult throughout the trip. I suppose the book would be fine as an initial planning tool to give you an overview of what the country has to offer, but as an on-the-ground travel book, it isn't as specific as others, making it less useful for the day-to-day experience of travel. Go for the Rough Guide if you want a book you can use while there.
