About this book

Wildlife is southern Africa's number one visitor attraction. This handy, illustrated book combines field guide and travel guide, explaining where and when to find wildlife and how to identify it. Author Mike Unwin covers everything from the 'Big Five' to dung beetles to sandgrouse, and explores the wildlife hotspots of seven countries, offering insights into animal behaviour and up-to-date conservation perspectives. From superb-value Kruger safaris to Cape Town and its vineyards to malaria-free safaris on South Africa's garden route, southern Africa has it all. Equally useful to both first-timer and serious naturalist, this Bradt guide is also the perfect safari souvenir.

'A book like this is a must if you are going on safari. It's an invaluable guide.' Abroad Magazine 'A highly focused view of the best wildlife.' SX Magazine
