This is the story of an enlightening, yet daunting (and sometimes downright harrowing) journey across fourteen African countries by motorcycle. Sam, a novice biker, decides to break free from the doldrums of everyday life in search of adventure, and finds it. Each chapter is filled with one great story after another.

Into Africa is upfront with adventure, mishaps, dust, heat and the thrill of over landing. The word-picutres than bring a good travel book to life are all here; Sam's perceptions of people, places and predicaments have real depth and texture, their associated sights, smells and sound are evoked with a natural east. 

Whether he's thrust into a brutal jail cell in Tanzania, being shot at, or knocked unconscious in the Namibian desert, this eye-opening tale catapults you into Africa. he lives in a remote village, escapes a bush fire and climbs a mountain. This is a captivating book.

A ripping yarn

Wow… totally blown away by this book. Sam hadn't even ridden properly when he hatched a plan to ride down through Africa - totally awesome and it inspired me to get out there and ride. I love the videos of Sam - especially the one at the end with the cat! He looks like an evil genius!

Sam captures all of the euphoria, the doubts, fears, dangers, excitement of setting off on your own to traverse Africa.
An engaging, well written, articulate and humorous journal that I couldn't put down...
Highly recommend...

Brilliant book

Great book, I couldn't put it down.
The way Sam writes of his journey, you could almost be there with him. Never a dull moment and the descriptions are all so true of Africa.
Looking forward to reading more.
