  • Frommer's Kenya & Tanzania will be the only major guidebook to cover both of these countries in detail. Fully 50% of international tourists arriving in Tanzania come from Kenya, so the convenience of having one book for both countries is a significant selling point.

  • Frommer's Kenya & Tanzania will be written by a trio of writers, two of whom currently live in Africa and a third who lived in Tanzania for years. The book will include a Swahili language appendix, a wildlife safari guide, and in-depth coverage of the best safari lodges, eco-resorts, and national parks Kenya and Tanzania have to offer.

  • Opinionated write-ups. No bland descriptions and lukewarm recommendations. Our expert writers are passionate about their destinations--tell it like it is in an engaging and helpful way.

  • Exact prices listed for every establishment and activity--no other guides offer such detailed, candid reviews of hotels and restaurants. We include the very best, but also emphasize moderately priced choices for real people.

  • All Complete guides offer user-friendly features including star ratings and special icons to point readers to great finds, excellent values, insider tips, best bets for kids, special moments, and overrated experiences.

  • The latest, savviest trip-planning advice--from saving money on airfares to renting a cell phone abroad to the latest advice on sustainable travel-to help readers make the most of their time and money.

About the author (2010)

Born and bred in the South African coastal city of Durban, Keith Bain has a doctoral degree in drama. Now he’s quit academia to explore and write about the world. Besides his safari adventures in Kenya, his assignments for Frommer’s have taken him to India, Italy, Botswana, Romania, Slovenia, Ireland, and even out onto the streets of Johannesburg. Most recently, he's been writing about the most beautiful city on earth—Cape Town, which he calls home.

Pippa de Bruyn was born in Durban, raised in Johannesburg, and has now settled in Cape Town. She is an award-winning journalist and is the author of Frommer’s South Africa and the coauthor of Frommer’s India.

Philip Briggs has been exploring the highways, byways, and backwaters of Africa since 1986, when he backpacked from Nairobi to Cape Town. In the 1990s, he wrote a series of pioneering Bradt Guides to destinations that were then—and in some cases still are—otherwise practically uncharted by the travel publishing industry, including the first dedicated guidebooks to Tanzania, Uganda, Ethiopia, Malawi, Mozambique, Ghana, and Rwanda. He contributes regularly to guidebooks by other publishers and to specialist travel and wildlife magazines including Africa Birds & Birding, Africa Geographic, BBC Wildlife, Travel Africa, and Wanderlust. He still spends about half his time on the road, accompanied by his wife, the travel photographer Ariadne Van Zandbergen, and the rest of it cloistered behind a keyboard at home in the uKhahlamba-Drakensberg region of South Africa.

Lizzie Williams, who originally hails from the U.K., is a freelance travel writer based in Cape Town. She is the author of more than 20 guidebooks on African countries for Footprint, Bradt, the AA, and Dorling Kindersley, and regularly writes for magazines and travel websites. She is also the author of Frommer’s Cape Town Day By Day and the online guide to Kenya and Tanzania.
