Presenting Mooiloop! The Book – The People, the Places and the Recipes as Seen on TV

Mooiloop!Now available from Mapstudio – Mooiloop! The Book:

The people, the places and the recipes

The essence of the award-winning programme Mooiloop! (as seen on SABC 2) is captured in this book, which invites you to take South Africa’s provincial/regional routes and experience small-town South Africa.

Stop and get out … admire some of the breathtaking, picturesque settings, take a walk down the streets and explore the shops and places of interest. Walk or drive to the township, feel its heartbeat. Be inspired by the artistic expressions. Learn about the history, architecture and economic activities of these “dorpies”.

Take a moment to enjoy a meal with a local flavour.

The book covers 39 small towns and villages in South Africa, introducing readers to local landmarks and also to the people who call these places home. Each visit focuses on a variety of lifestyle elements, including some local cooking, adventure, tourism and music. All aspects of the town are featured, from the unusual touristy spots to the townships and attractions in the surrounding areas.
