Insider's Guide: Top Wildlife Photography Spots in Botswana and Namibia provides a comprehensive guide to visiting some of the most remote destinations in the world.

The detailed and instructive photographic notes provide up-to-date information on the vital technical aspects of photography. In addition, Insider's Guide: Top Wildlife Photography Spots in Botswana and Namibia is a guide to understanding animal behaviour – a photographer's greatest asset. Insider's guide uncovers the wonders of Botswana from the Okavango Delta, Deception Valley, to the Northern Tuli Game Reserve and many more.
