The Wildlife of Southern Africa is the first field guide to combine the animals and plants of the region in one easy-to-use volume.
This is the ideal companion for all who venture into the outdoors - visitors to game parks, hikers, holiday-makers, birders, game viewers and gardeners.
The Wildlife of Southern Africa embraces over 2000 carefully selected plants and animals, large and small, that are likely to be encountered during a visit to any part of the region.
It is ideal for all nature lovers, with over 1200 species illustrated and many more identifiable from the text by reference to similar species.
