Excellent reference, 12 July 2008
This book is an excellent field guide and reference book which is small enough to take in your camera bag on your game drives. It has very clear and concise descriptions of the relevant animals and has a huge section on birds. The photos are of good quality.
The beginning of the book has a brief description of photography and the equipment you will need to take with you. It then attempts to explain some basic photography skills. This was not comprehensive enough to be of much use other than for the complete novice and I feel there are better books for this.
An excellent field reference and I would recommend it for your trip.
