About this book

The Chobe Companion is one of a series of all-in-one field guides to wild places in Botswana. It covers the common and conspicuous mammals (29 species), birds (173 species), frogs and reptiles (13 species) and trees (36 species) in Chobe National Park and environs. Clear photographs assist with species identification, supplemented by the short but informative text.

The Chobe Companion has been written and designed for the inquiring tourist who would like to know a bit more about the fauna and flora of Chobe. Setswana, French and German names are included along with the English and scientific names. Sections are colour-coded for ease of use, and the alphabetical index at the front enables any species to be quickly found.
