About this book

Just what are the most amazing spectacles that every wildlife enthusiast has to see during their lifetime? Top nature photographer and inveterate traveller William Burrard-Lucas has spent years visiting the far-flung corners of every continent, capturing thousands of breathtaking images along the way, and is therefore the perfect author for Top Wildlife Sites of the World.

Fifty sites are covered in this astounding book, each with a locator map, several photographs, a fact file of information such as best time to visit and key species and spectacles and a beautifully written evocative account of what it's like to go there. Destinations range from Kangaroo Island in Australia to Kamchatka in the far east of Russia, and from African hot-spots such as the Okavango and Masai Mara to American wildernesses such as the Amazon and Alaska. Familiar destinations including the Farne Islands and Yellowstone mingle with more esoteric experiences such as whale-watching in Tonga and watching millions of Monarch butterflies in Mexico.

This beautifully illustrated book on the world's best sites for watching spectacular wildlife will be a valuable addition to the bookshelf of any wildlife enthusiast. It is also perfect as a gift, or just to delve into and be inspired by the best that nature has to offer.
