Dark Star Safari by Paul Theroux was one of the first books I read about Africa that didn’t stick to stereotypes about banyan trees and time-frozen tribes. This literary nonfiction book follows the author’s journey from Egypt to South Africa by foot, car and boat—no planes, ever. Along the way, he sees parts of the continent typical travelers never would, and he has truly insightful conversations just by being curious. For anyone who wants to get a different perspective on Africa, and who wants a deep dive into travel there, I highly recommend Dark Star Safari.
