A liberating motorcycle journey through Africa with descriptions of the amazing people and places, the joy of big skies and the open road, and the sometimes harrowing events that would shape destiny.
Into Africa tells the story of a novice motorcyclist who takes on the challenge of riding the length of the continent just because, 'it seemed like a great idea'. Sam Manicom had only planned to take a temporary break from his successful retail career, but the one-year ride was so life-changing that he continued adventuring around the world for another seven years, covering 55 countries and 200,000 miles. Sam had no idea how liberating motorcycle travel would be. Revelling in a new-found freedom without timetables or routines, he became fascinated by his ability to explore side roads at a whim and reach remote parts of the continent that many travellers never find. Though Africa is just 5,000 miles from top to toe, Sam explored over 22,000 miles on every kind of road imaginable.
Narrated by Sam, ride with him as he describes Africa's amazing people and places, the joy of big skies and the open road, and the sometimes harrowing events that would shape his destiny. This is a genuine tale of the unexpected.

Sam Manicom has a writing style that reminded me of Ted Simon. Down to earth, always more interested to learn about the land and their people than just ticking off another box of the countries visited.
I admire his ability to get on with most people
What was the emotional impact? Well, it has inspired me to plan my own adventures. 4 weeks every summer, every year further afield and getting more out of our comfort zone and now starting to plan our very own exit of the 9 til 5
Let it inspire you to challenge your own comfort zone. And, by the way, writing a book afterwards is optional !
