Wild Karoo - A Journey Through History, Change And Revival In An Ancient Land (Paperback): Mitch Reardon Wild Karoo - A Journey Through History, Change And Revival In An Ancient Land (Paperback)
Mitch Reardon 1
R200 R157 Discovery Miles 1 570 Save R43 (21%) Ships in 5 - 10 working days

After centuries of relative isolation, the Karoo – South Africa’s parched heartland – is a latecomer to the tourist industry. What was once viewed as a harsh and desolate place of limited attraction is rapidly gaining popularity with visitors who now make the Karoo their destination, keen to partake of its legendary charm, its extraordinary flora and the resurgence of wildlife that once again populates its plains.

Wild Karoo documents Mitch Reardon’s 4,000-kilometre journey of discovery through the region. The book focuses on:

  • local nature conservation in all its facets
  • the game, large and small – some recently reintroduced – plus birds, reptiles and invertebrates
  • the unique, arid-adapted flora
  • the landscape and geology
  • the history and lifestyle of the people who have made a home here
  • plans to combine public and private protected land to create wildlife corridors between isolated parks, re-establishing old migration routes and so reversing some of the effects of human settlement

Beautifully written, and illustrated with evocative photographs, this book is a must read for anyone interested in travel, wildlife and the environment.

The Historical Overberg - Traces Of The Past In South Africa's Southernmost Region (Hardcover): Chris Schoeman The Historical Overberg - Traces Of The Past In South Africa's Southernmost Region (Hardcover)
Chris Schoeman 1
R300 R236 Discovery Miles 2 360 Save R64 (21%) Ships in 5 - 10 working days

Situated between the Hottentots Holland Mountains and the Breede River, the Overberg is an important agricultural region and a popular holiday destination for tourists and nature lovers who delight in the beauty of its mountainous landscape, abundant plant species and long sandy beaches.

But this area also has a rich history going back thousands of years, when the indigenous Khoi people originally thrived there, before the first European settlers arrived to leave their own indelible imprint on the culture, architecture and character of the region. This book provides a detailed account of this past by pointing out the many places, buildings, events and personalities that have made the Overberg the diverse and unique place that it is today.

The Overberg has been a home or point of interest for explorers, innovators, artists and writers, for figures as varied as Bartholomew Diaz, Olof Bergh, Hendrik Verwoerd, Gregoire Boonzaier, Audrey Blignault and Breyten Breytenbach. Some of South Africa’s oldest towns, houses and missionary stations can be found here, and its treacherous coastline has been the cause of hundreds of shipwrecks for centuries.

Enlivened by historical and current photographs and informative side panels, this book is a collector’s item.

Africa Solo - My World Record Race From Cairo To Cape Town (Paperback): Mark Beaumont Africa Solo - My World Record Race From Cairo To Cape Town (Paperback)
Mark Beaumont 1
R215 R169 Discovery Miles 1 690 Save R46 (21%) Ships in 5 - 10 working days

In the spring of 2015, Mark Beaumont set out from the bustling heart of Cairo on his latest world record attempt - solo, the length of Africa, intending to ride to Cape Town in under 50 days. Seven years since he smashed the world record for cycling round the world, this would be his toughest trip yet. And he would set a new mark that would simply break the limits of endurance.

Despite illness, mechanical faults, attempted robbery and stone-throwing children, as well as dehydration in the deserts and unprecedented levels of exhaustion, Mark completed the journey in just 41 days, 10 hours and 22 minutes, after cycling 6,762 miles, spending 439 hours in the saddle (sometimes up to 16 hours a day) and climbing 190,355 feet through 8 countries. It was an astonishing journey, and one that will fascinate and grip the reader.

From the obvious dangers of Egypt, Sudan and Kenya, over the unpaved, muddy, mountainous roads of Ethiopia, through the beautiful grasslands of Tanzania and Zambia, to riding at night in Botswana in the company of elephants and giraffes, Mark brings Africa to life in all its complex glory, friendship and curiosity, while inspiring us all to question the bounds of what is possible.

A craft beer is more than a pint - it’s a taste, a place and an experience. There is a story behind each ingredient in every beer, and thinking about these will increase your sensory experience and make craft beer a delight to your palate. Craft beer is a whole-hearted creative expression; the styles and recipes brewed are always original, and are based on the tastes and interests of each brewer.

MapStudio's Craft Beer will give you all the information you need to discover the perfectly crafted beer - the history of craft beer brewery, how a beer is brewed, beer classifications, the location of South African local craft breweries and their individual beers, as well as interesting stories behind all the brewers, how they started, their passion and of course, their beers.

The book also lists all beer festivals and events where friends, family and craft brewers can come together and share ideas and beers!!

Discover the passion that is Craft Beer.
