Bob and Julie Lake are lifelong campers, each with more than half a century of travel and camping behind them. They have travelled extensively throughout the world: Europe, Africa, Asia, Australia, Canada and the United States, and have camped from Tasmania’s south-west to the Queensland outback; from Death Valley to the Sierra Mountains in the US, and from the low-veldt of Zimbabwe to Kenya’s Northern Frontier. They have had many good camps, a few difficult ones, and some near-disasters. These experiences, stretching over 50 years, form the basis of this book, with the practical wisdom that will help others get the most out of their own camping adventures.
