About the author (2002)

Tony Pinchuck launched his travels as a 15-year-old schoolboy hitchhiking around South Africa in the 1970s, and his explorations of the subcontinent have continued ever since. Now a resident of Cape Town, he is a production editor with the investigative magazine Noseweek. Together with his wife, Barbara McCrea, he is also the coauthor of The Rough Guide to South Africa.

Barbara McCrea was born in Zimbabwe and taught African literature at the University of KwaZulu-Natal. She lived in London for 15 years, working on Rough Guides to Zimbabwe, South Africa, and Cape Town, before returning to southern Africa. McCrea now resides close to the beach in Cape Town, where she swims, rides horses, and climbs mountains to keep sane.
