About this book

Highly portable, concise, and informative, this is the essential guide for identifying Southern Africa's most visible wildlife. Featuring full-colour photos of more than 400 species of birds, mammals, snakes, lizards, and insects, Wildlife of Southern Africa provides a spectacular sense of what travellers can see in the major game reserves and national parks of South Africa, Swaziland, Lesotho, Namibia, Zimbabwe, Botswana, and southern Mozambique. Each species in Wildlife of Southern Africa is accompanied by at least one full-colour photograph plus a full textual description. Tips on wildlife photography as well as information on how to make the most of a safari are also included. This is a must-have guide for anyone planning or dreaming about a visit to this fascinating part of the world.

Media reviews

"This is a very useful book and I highly recommend it to anyone traveling to southern Africa to observe wildlife. Study it before you leave on safari, or just purchase it and take an armchair safari that will cost a lot less!"
– DRK, Wildlife Activist

"This book is clearly directed to tourist photographers, but may well be of interest to academic and public libraries."
– Frederic F. Burchsted, American Reference Books Annual
