Dr Deb At Vic Falls Zimbabwe

The next edition of Travelling Well is now available –

Edition 17.

This is the 9th cover and includes a photo at Victoria Falls – from the Zimbabwe side – given the recent publicity about yellow fever Not being required by the South Africans if travellers visit the Zimbabwe side of the falls, this seemed particularly fitting.

The first question everyone asks is ..Aside from a new cover, whats new inside?

A …It is a minor update and much will look the same to the frequent user of this book, however as usual, details have been added in response to feedback from travellers.
