I have just come back from a safari where I found this guide really useful. It is fairly slim and light so I could easily carry it on safari drives. It has helpful comparisons of sizes and weights of animals - excellent when trying to distinguish between different antelope. It even has pages of footprint comparisons and, surprisingly useful, dung comparisons!
I would definitely recommend this to anyone going on their first trip to look at south african wildlife.

Very good! I own and use several Southern African wild life books, this is now the only mammal one I will take! It is so easy to use, all info on one page, not any of this turn to page xxx see plat 324.5a rubbish! okk its not incredibly in depth but carries all info wanted for a field ID and some facts like behaviors, habitat, other names and gestation etc BUT one of the best bits is the silhouette sizeing, a silhouette of the critter next to that of a man or arm or hand, brilliant!
I have been on numerous self drive safaris in South Africa and Zimbabwe and this will be our new constant companion!

I bought this for our recent safari in Botswana. It covered every mammal we saw and makes it easier to identify the many photos we took. I prefer photographs to drawings as I find the quality of some guide book drawing to be so poor you cannot identify things properly. This guide book is small enough to carry around and the photos make it easy to use.

Used this book recently on a holiday safari in South Africa/Swaziland. Very useful. Didn't really see anything that wasn't covered in this book and it fitted in my pocket!

Many other vet students asked to borrow book while I was in africa doing conservation work. Ideal size packed with many varieties of species. well worth buying.
