ToGO or not ToGO

Eight specific routes crisscrossing central South Africa and Lesotho, all recently travelled by the author, and presented in a conversational style, enhanced by superb images. “ToGO or not ToGO” is testimony to eight years of garnering lesser-known facts about lesser-known places – a compendium designed to help tailor a route to suit the time and pocket of those who enjoy slow travelling on roads less travelled.

Side-bars, with fascinating snippets of background information on the history and customs of the people, and environmental details of the various areas, add lustre to a quality publication that can GO anywhere, yet is just as at home on your coffee table.

Many people yearn to venture to little-known destinations in southern Africa, wondering what they will find or what to expect. ToGO or not ToGO is a first ever tourism manual and coffee table book with several great qualities:

  • It understands tourism; what travellers need, the kind of information they want.
  • The routes are discussed in detail, allowing readers the freedom to choose where To GO, when To GO and how long To GO.
  • The book is extremely visual with superb photography and maps, as well as informative, entertaining route descriptions.
  • It is a practical, comprehensive reference on virtually every specification the discerning traveller might consider relevant.
  • Although the excellent presentation lifts it to coffee table standard, this travellers’ companion is also suitable for any vehicle and even backpacks.
  • The book is done in a larger than normal print, making it easier to read, not only for the visually impaired, but also for the travelling reader.

The ToGOTo Route Planner is a compilation of seven years’ extensive research in southern South Africa. Written in a leisurely style, it is a factual, reliable source of reference, and covers all aspects of tourism, including our rich cultural heritage and the environment.

The routes are developed in such a way that tourists can independently design their own route according to the time at their disposal. They can choose to travel low budget or in style. The Route Planner makes clear differentiations between 4×4-only routes and those suitable for ordinary vehicles as well.
