This wonderful collection of travel writing captures the very best of Getaway’s articles over the past 21 years of travel, exploration and adventure. It’s a celebration of the diversity of the continent and of the journalists that write about it: from the founding editor, David Steele, to the unforgettable Patrick Wagner; the pens of David Bristow and Don Pinnock; the new guard lead by Justin Fox and Cameron Ewart-Smith; and the journalists who have worked alongside them to offer the readers new insights into the African way of life. From personal accounts of the journeys and their destinations to uncovering the world and the environment in which we live, this book is a superb showcase of the writing that has made Getaway the leading travel magazine in Southern Africa.

Route 62 is an alternative road between Cape Town and Port Elizabeth through towns and surroundings very different from those of the usual N2 coastal highway. The Overberg, on the other hand, is a compact region of small, rural and coastal towns scattered among rolling farmlands and indigenous fynbos, barely an hour’s drive from Cape Town.
