More than half the species of birdlife occurring on the Southern African subcontinent are found in the Kruger National Park. Besides the enormous variety of birdlife, the park provides consistently fine viewing, and is therefore a prime destination for birdwatching enthusiasts from Southern Africa and beyond. Designed for easy reference and maximum rewards, this guide includes more than 280 of the birds you are most likely to see while in the Kruger National Park and adjacent reserves. All the birds are illustrated with Ken Newman's paintings, while the text mentions other similar-looking birds. The text gives authoritative information about preferred habitat and characteristic calls and behaviour. The guide includes: descriptions of the birds with subheadings which guide you to the information you are looking for - status, description, call, behaviour, habitat and distribution; a speedy alphabetical index to bird groups; a guide to the natural habitats in the Kruger Park.
