A very helpful book,
This review is from: Field Guide to African Wildlife (National Audubon Society) (Flexibound)
I love this book. I took it from Kenya to Botswana and it was the most often refered to book in the group I was travelling in. It was so good that the tour leader (an very experienced African guide) kept using it and I left it for him at the end of the trip. I am now buying another copy to replace it!
In Kenya and Tanzania it never let me down, I was able to find every bird and animal I saw. As we went further south there were variations of the species which were not photographed but the descriptions were good enough to enable me to identify the animals.
Fantastic photographs and really good descriptions of appearance, distribution, breeding, habitat etc. Also a very useful section which gives an overview of all the main national parks.
Useful size and hardwearing covers (not sure why it has the small paper cover though, leave that at home!!)
