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!!)
Also the paper that the text is printed on is very thin - almost like tissue paper - the kind of paper used for the new testaments that the Gideons used to give us at school!
Yes the illustrations are very good - there are about 600 pages of colour illustrations, but sadly also a further 1,000 yes 1,000 text pages.
Im sure this is a very informative and comprehensive book, but I wouldnt call it a pocket guide & will be sending it back shortly as its simply too big & I doubt its ability to survive long whilst on safari in Africa as the pages are so delicate!
So im giving it a 3 star rating as Im sure its a great and detailed encylopedia, but I need something I can pop into my camera bag or top pocket
