Christopher Hibbert has done well to compress a hundred years of discovery into one thoroughly readable volume. (The Times (UK), (London))
Sprightly, interesting reading. (Library Journal)
The stories are so good and Hibbert so expert in retelling them that... readers will be enthralled. (Publishers Weekly)
Hibbert is a writer of absolute certainty, and it is hard not to believe that he was himself on hand at every occasion he recounts. (The New Yorker)
Fascinating reading... . [Africa Explored] is likely to send the reader back to the explorers' own published accounts to gratify the curiosity Hibbert so entertainingly stimulates. (Los Angeles Times)
Hibbert writes exceptionally well, with a sharp eye for the clash of character and the dramatic moment. (Chicago Tribune)
