The essence of Tracks4Africa is that we are a community of travellers who love sharing our travel experiences with other people. With a guide book it is inevitable that there will be updates as new information becomes available.

You can get the latest information per page number on this site. We would also like you to report any corrections in the book that you would like to share with fellow travellers.

If you subscribe to this page, we shall automatically notify you of updates in the book and new lodges and campsites that were added to the Tracks4Africa data base since the book was published.

Have a look at the ACCOMMODATION UPDATES tab if you want to view new camps and lodges that came to our attention since the book was published.

124 Note that the road between Linyanti and Seronga is a public Transit Road. You do NOT need a permit to use it, unless you want to enter one of the Concession Areas on either side of it. However, for obvious reasons the upmarket lodge owners in this area are not entirely welcoming to self-drive tourists. Be aware that this road is VERY unpredictable due to season flooding and can be downright dangerous. If you do attempt this road, inquire about the road condition from locals shortly before you traverse it and ensure that you have enough fuel to retrace your tracks if necessary. Do not attempt it in a single vehicle and ensure that you have proper recovery gear on board.

Get Listed

Being listed in our guide book is up to our discretion, since our contract is with the traveller who relies on our information. Camps and lodges can, however, improve their presence/visibility on our different platforms by listing themselves.

T4A data is distributed to various channels such as our website, T4A GPS maps and our business partners who include a number of premium brands.

We also offer you the opportunity to, in future, become a premium listing in this book at an additional cost. As a premium listing you can include a photograph (not a logo) with your book listing and enjoy some additional marketing exposure. We shall contact you at a later stage, when we update this book, to invite you to become a premium listing.

It is in your interest to ensure that, if your camp or lodge is listed with us, you keep the information we have up to date. You can also add a more complete description of your services. Use the Correction facility on the Errata page to update your details or go directly to your listing on our website ( and make a correction.
