The Kruger National Park is one of the largest and best-known conservation areas in the world. Although famous as home to Africa's iconic Big Five, it is equally renowned for its staggering diversity of birds. Some 500 species have been recorded within its range, representing more than half the number of species found across southern Africa.
Informative species accounts, full-colour photographs and distribution maps that indicate actual sightings make this book an invaluable guide for easy identification. An introductory chapter discusses the park's geology, vegetation types, climate and rainfall, and how these determine bird distribution.
