The first Bradt Travel Guide was written on a barge floating down a tributary of the Amazon more than 40 years ago.
Bradt Travel Guides now publish more than 200 titles on countries, regions and wildlife - BBC Wildlife magazine said Bradt Travel Guides have the “best wildlife coverage of any popular guidebooks”.
Bradt Wildlife Guides range far and wide - with information on where to see animals, and the conservation threats they face - with titles, among others, on the Antarctic, Arctic, Australia, Central and Eastern Europe, China, Madagascar, the Galapagos, East Africa, Southern Africa, and on the wildlife of the Pantanal - the world’s largest tropical wetland, which straddles Brazil, Bolivia and Paraguay.
Bradt is not restricted to wildlife and its travel guides are equally as wide ranging, with regional guides, country guides, and city guides, all intended to be entertaining to read, as well as an invaluable reference for tourists and travellers.
There is also a series of Slow Travel Guides, for taking it easy while travelling in different parts of Britain.
