5.0 out of 5 stars The best option if you're serious..., 16 Mar. 2009
It's a fairly weighty reference book to carry with you but then there are rather a lot of bird species in East Africa! Format is similar to many other best in market field guides: good quality drawn images with sex/juvenile variations, summary of identification, location/habitat and activity traits plus a thumbnail image of the region showing distribution overview. Just right amount of detail to make it a readily usable field guide before, during and after a trip. Going to East Africa and keen on birdlife? Has to be the second thing you pack after your binoculars.

2.0 out of 5 stars A liitle too simplistic, 6 Feb. 2009
At a simple level, this guide does what it purports to: picture of animal and brief description. Big drawback though is that these three countries constitute a huge area and there is little information about where you are likely to see such species - a small thumbnail location map for each would have been very useful. Geographically it's largely biased to Tanzania and Kenya - particularly for birdlife. As I'm going to Uganda, it's not going to be particularly useful unfortunately. Photography tips at the front a bit on the limited side also.
