Description:

The aim of this compact guidebook is to help visitors to the region's national parks, national reserves and other wildlife areas enjoy the wildlife even more. It does not claim to be a comprehensive field guide, but is an introduction to the more noticeable and interesting mammals, birds, reptiles, frogs, trees, flowers and insects (including butterflies) that can be seen on safari. Comprehensive guides are available for each group, with the exception, perhaps, of butterflies. This book illustrates and describes a carefully selected range of species, with notes on their identification, habitat, status, size and, if applicable, the best locations in which to see them. Chapters are arranged in such a way that similar or related species are placed together for comparison.
