This one is not about predicting the future and contains very few science fiction elements, but it is absolutely great adventure story.
I suspect that many people don't realise that the majority of Verne's books were in fact "travel adventures" and not SF at all. I share your love of "In Search of the Castaways". I posted a version of it here to MR not too long ago.
