About this book

Western South Africa is one of the world's greatest biodiversity hotspots and is legendary among international and local birders for the remarkable range of birds that are found there and nowhere else. This guide details how and where to find these species, as well as other ecotourism attractions such as big game, whales and flowers. Over 100 birding sites are linked into practical routes that encompass the whole of southern and western Africa, ranging from the unique Cape Flora of Cape Town's mountainous environment, to the famed inland desert regions of Namaqualand and the Kalahari.
