About this book

"At last we have an invaluable and long-awaited guide to the Kafue National Park embedded in the heart of Africa, the centre of Zambia; rich in biodiversity, with an enviable list of flora and fauna and intimate, private lodges and exquisite camps resting in unspoilt landscape. This compact book will be a friend to newcomers and a detailed reference for those who have visited the Park already. Anything you need to know is here. We hope that the guide will help you enjoy this vast unspoilt wilderness so you come away understanding its secrets and a love of its tranquillity as we have."
- Professor Emeritus Ian Swingland OBE

A Visitor's Guide to Kafue National Park, Zambia is not only the product of a long association of the author with the Kafue National Park, but also his experience gained in Zambia in general covering more than 50 years. The book had a long gestation as the author planned it at the time he was living in the park when it became obvious that nearly all the information about the place was in official records that were difficult for most people to access so that a user-friendly and technically accurate book was needed to fill the knowledge gap.

Biography

After transferring from the Provincial Administration of Zambia around the time of independence, Peter de Vere Moss was a game ranger in the park in the 1960s, later park biologist in the 1970s, and consultant responsible for the first comprehensive management plan 1976 which he revised in 2010 having drafted the Zambian National Policy on Environment a few years earlier.  The book had a long gestation as it was planned at the time when Peter was living in the park. It became obvious that nearly all the information about the place was in official records that were difficult for most people to access so that a user-friendly and technically accurate book was needed to fill the knowledge gap.
