For me the best part of the book was that covering 77 mammals. I particularly liked the photographs of these which really augmented the literature I had already. In addition there is a small sample of the reptiles and amphibians you can see plus some examples of the typical trees and common plants.
This is a nice book to take with you on a safari but if you are keen to be able to identify a very wide range of birds this book will not take away the need for an extensive field guide.
Then the book moves on to beautiful photos of birds. The pictures are on the right pages and writing on the left pages. Nearly the 2/3 rd of the book is on birds of East Africa, which has nearly 500 different birds. Then the book explains in similar fashion about mammals, reptiles, flowers and trees.
It is an excellent book to take with you on safari to Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda. The size of the book is just right for travel.
Having born in Kenya and travel there on safari frequently, I would reccomend this book, so that you may enjoy and spot the wildlife easily. Your guide/driver will also show you the wildlife. Other small books with similar theme are:-
(1) Birds of East Africa, Dave Richards 1995 (2000)
(2) Mammals of central and East Africa, Chris and Tilde Stuart 1992 (2001)
(3) The Beautiful Plants of Kenya, John Karmali 1988 (1993)
(4) Collins Birds of Eastern Africa, Ber Van Perlo 1995
(5) The Wild Flowers of Kenya, Michael Blundell 1982
(6) The Lion and the Lily( A Guide to Kenya), Kenneth Bolton 1962
Read and ENJOY.
The beginning of the book has a brief description of photography and the equipment you will need to take with you. It then attempts to explain some basic photography skills. This was not comprehensive enough to be of much use other than for the complete novice and I feel there are better books for this.
An excellent field reference and I would recommend it for your trip.

Used this along with a bird guide as a backup. The guide will point out most things but it is an excellent reference for birds and animals which will be pointed out. Read morePublished 15 months ago by F. Rodger
Great and informative book! To the point with good pictures.
The missing fifth star is due to missing a good quick reference index system.
Beautiful pictures and explanations about the lives of all the Animals you are likely to see on you Safari. Read morePublished on 8 Dec. 2014 by John Hull
Generally a good book. The main content is on birds, which is fine as they are more numerous than say mammals. Read morePublished on 8 Oct. 2014 by R M Brannock
