The best in the field,
This review is from: The Safari Companion: A Guide to Watching African Mammals Including Hoofed Mammals, Carnivores, and Primates (Paperback)
Like another reviewer, I first came across this book whilst on safari. This is the book that the guides use. Not all guides, only the best ones in my experience of 9 safaris. Having said that, this is not a book aimed at somebody who wants to simply know what animal they are looking at. There are lots of field guides that do that far better, and have colour illustrations as well.
This is a book for those who have already got past the identification stage and are interested in understanding the behaviour of the animals they are watching. If that is what you want to do, this is the book for you.
