About the Author 作者简介

Anthony Ham:

Anthony is a freelance writer and photographer who specialises in Spain, East and Southern Africa, the Arctic and the Middle East. When he's not writing for Lonely Planet, Anthony writes about and photographs Spain, Africa and the Middle East for newspapers and magazines in Australia, the UK and US.

In 2001, after years of wandering the world, Anthony finally found his spiritual home when he fell irretrievably in love with Madrid on his first visit to the city. Less than a year later, he arrived there on a one-way ticket, with not a word of Spanish and not knowing a single person in the city. When he finally left Madrid ten years later, Anthony spoke Spanish with a Madrid accent, was married to a local and Madrid had become his second home. Now back in Australia, Anthony continues to travel the world in search of stories.

  • Not bad but not great
    Not bad but not great


    You can probably find most of the information online before you go. Some of the info on the attractions in Botswana was outdated even though the publishers claim it was updated in July 2013. We went in Sept 2013 and found the Crocodile Farm in Maun had been closed for over 6 months and that the museam was more of a art gallery. The maps are helpful as are the descriptions of all of the wildlife and game. Might be helpful for Namibia but was not an essential part of our Botswana trip.

  • Great resource. Enough information in compact form

    Great resource. Enough information in compact form. Gives us opportunity to learn about the area we plan to visit, distanced and accommodation. Also re culture and expectations. Thank you.

    The latest edition of LP's Botswana and Namibia is the most practical and informative guide to planning an expedition to this most amazing part of Africa. It is superbly organized and thorough and will be our most treasured companion in our forthcoming six week trek through Botswana. We have learned to trust LP's guidebooks through first-hand use throughout Africa and Asia. We have learned that when traveling independently, Lonely Planet is indispensable in clearly explaining all the little things that might otherwise confound a traveler. It's like having a local expert at your elbow to answer every question.
