Lonely Planet: The world's leading travel guide publisher*

This is not a guidebook. And it's definitely 'not-for-parents'. It is the real inside story about one of the world's most exciting continents - Africa. In this book you'll hear fascinating tales about Dogon warriors, fearless explorers, Nollywood film stars, crazy coffins, Egyptian tombs and witch doctors. Check out cool stories about Tuareg nomads, the world's biggest diamond, killer crocodiles, and eccentric dictators. You'll find thumb pianos and mummified monkeys, camel caravans, a golden death mask, a seriously tough desert race, and history galore. This book shows you an Africa your parents probably don't even know about.

Authors: Written and researched by Lonely Planet, Clive Gifford
