About this author

Chris McIntyre went to Africa in 1987, after reading Physics at Queen’s College, Oxford. He taught with VSO in Zimbabwe for almost three years and travelled extensively, before writing his first guidebook in 1990. He has since written Bradt guides to Namibia, Botswana and Zambia, and co-authored (with his wife, Susan) the last four editions of Bradt’s Zanzibar guide – the latest of which is being thoroughly revised at the same time as this book. Chris now runs specialist tour operator Expert Africa, where he leads a team of dedicated Africa addicts who provide impartial advice and organise great safaris to Africa, including Tanzania. He can be contacted on chris.mcintyre@expertafrica.com.
