Join Koos, the author's alter-ego on an epic overland trip along the legendry Cape-to-Cairo trail an onward into the mystique of Asia. This is not only a tale of a wanderer's attempt to escape the `mainstream', but also an open-minded spiritual quest to explore the essence of life and the course of destiny. Koos, a hard-drinking bachelor who is not averse to a bit of hanky-panky or pot smoking, opens his diary in Cape Town, the `Mother city' of Southern Africa. Due to visa problems he misses the initial departure with his travel companions only to meet up with them in Namibia. From there the colourful narrative leads the reader up the Skeleton Coast and on into the Okavango, Victoria Falls, the Chobe, South Luangwa, Malawi, Zanzibar, the Serengeti and the Ngorongoro Crater. There is adventure in Ethiopia, and the gripping ordeal through the Nubian Desert, up the Nile, and onward into ancient Cairo. Barred entry into Europe and Turkey, Koos heads off to Bangkok, and northward onto a Mekong River boat to Luang Prabang.
