'Informative and reader-friendly... the photographs are of outstanding quality' African Wildlife 'Bradt Travel Guides simply have the best wildlife coverage of any of the popular guide books.' BBC Wildlife

From the Author

Not just fluffy lemurs!
Compiling this book was pure pleasure! To take the most exciting feature of my favourite country, select the finest photos available, and have Madophiles of the calibre of Nick Garbutt and Derek Schuurman as my co-authors hardly felt like work. We set out to bring the wildlife of Madagascar to the attention of the growing number of visitors to that island in a form that was both entertaining and informative. It was not just fluffy lemurs we wanted to describe - I can well remember delaying publication until I'd returned to the rainforest to get a photograph of a hitherto unavailable subject: a leech happily feeding on Bradt blood! --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
This book is certainly very pretty, with excellent photographs.
It is also thin and light-weight, and does cover a little bit of everything: habitats, recommended sites to visit, mammals, birds, reptiles and insects.
As such, it is an inspiring read, and probably the best single-volume book to carry for those who only have a superficial interest in Madagadcar's unique wildlife.

However, for more serious naturalists the information it offers is far too limited. Even mammals, the best detailed group, are only discussed down to genus level, neither mentioning nor illustrating all or even most species. Birds receive a token coverage of 10 pages, and reptiles fare little better.
Even the descriptions of nature reserves can be found in the more recent, excellent and complete field guides to the "Mammals of Madagascar: A Complete Guide" which actually tells you where to spot every single species separately, and the similarly brilliant "Birds of the Indian Ocean Islands" which not only covers all the birds of Madagascar, but those of neighbouring islands too, along with recommended birdwatching sites. Fans of herpetofauna should try and get hold of "A Field Guide to the Amphibians & Reptiles of Madagascar".
If you buy any of the above field guides, you will find this book a waste of money - I did.

Booked my holiday before buying the guide. Silly thing to do! However, luckily the travel company provided good advice. Would have made some adjustments though had I had the guide first. It will serve me in good stead when I book my second holiday as I am intrigued.

This guide was in use by our Madagascan guide on a recent trip to the island and we have now bought our own copy to help put names to all our photos. No book can contain everything but this one makes a good stab at it.

I found this to be very useful while I was in Madagascar and a great help in identification. Recommended for any potential visitor to this unique island.

Format: Paperback
Really nice glossy colour photos but the written detail is not very informative and the number of species listed is not very extensive. Not bad for a quick reference, but if you are interested in more detail about behaviours or a more comprehensive guide to wildlife, I'd look elsewhere.
