Be vigilant when driving through Africa: camels are careless when crossing the road, and women carrying waterpots are little more watchful. So warn the authors of this fifth edition of Africa Overland. They also give updated information on each country's political and security situation (Angola, Sierra Leone and Liberia are on the up; since this guide's last edition, security in Western Sudan and Eastern Chad has turned sour); provide an expanded Route Outlines section including information on border crossings; and offer revised recommendations on vehicles including practical coverage on buying a vehicle, maintenance and driving. ?This is the ultimate roadies' guide to traversing the wilderness of Africa. An indispensable guide to negotiating the unchartered perils of Africa's vast plains.' Daily Express (UK)

Through the eyes of a 22 year old Australian, we get to hear firsthand the trip of a life time as he crosses the African continent from north to south with a group of fellow adventurers with a specialist overland travel company in 1971. Crossing the Sahara desert takes weeks as obstacles are overcome and the harshness of desert life is experienced. This is followed by navigating almost impassable roads in the former Belgian Congo before entering the vast plains and game parks of East Africa. Living and working in apartheid South Africa we are told of the experiences encountered and people met. The final part of the journey is returning to London but by unconventional means. Who would ever think of hitchhiking between Jo’Burg and Nairobi on a shoestring budget before getting a Charter Flight back to London? Numerous photographs, maps and other paraphernalia are provided to assist the armchair explorer capture the spirit of adventure of the amazing journey.

Recent research suggests that isolation from regional and international markets has contributed significantly to poverty in many Sub-Saharan African countries. Numerous empirical studies identify poor transport infrastructure and border restrictions as significant deterrents to trade expansion. In response, the African Development Bank has proposed an integrated network of functional roads for the subcontinent. Drawing on new econometric results, the authors quantify the trade-expansion potential and costs of such a network. They use spatial network analysis techniques to identify a network of primary roads connecting all Sub-Saharan capitals and other cities with populations over 500,000. The authors estimate current overland trade flows in the network using econometrically-estimated gravity model parameters, road transport quality indicators, actual road distances, and estimates of economic scale for cities in the network. Then they simulate the effect of feasible continental upgrading by setting network transport quality at a level that is functional, but less highly developed than existing roads in countries like South Africa and Botswana. The authors assess the costs of upgrading with econometric evidence from a large World Bank database of road project costs in Africa. Using a standard approach to forecast error estimation, they derive a range of potential benefits and costs. Their baseline results indicate that continental network upgrading would expand overland trade by about $250 billion over 15 years, with major direct and indirect benefits for the rural poor. Financing the program would require about $20 billion for initial upgrading and $1 billion annually for maintenance. The authors conclude with a discussion of supporting institutional arrangements and the potential cost of implementing them.
