The Greater Kruger Park is not only Big Five country - it is home to thousands of plant and animal species, each a link in a delicate ecological web. The Park is situated in the Lowveld, a wide coastal plain of fairly dry savanna. The mosaic of habitats created by the various soil types and larger rivers dissecting the Park supports a myriad of organisms, both large and small.
The purpose of this book is to introduce the richness of animal life to the Park's visitors. All the common, readily seen species are thus described here in an unique, user-friendly way which combines text, photographs and easily recognised symbols. This book allows you to experience 68 mammal species, 215 birds, 17 reptiles and 8 amphibians.
