Good all-around source July 21 2011
By K. Rollins - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Southern African Wildlife: A Visitor's Guide is a good book to carry with you on your trip if you don't want separate books for birds, mammals, reptiles,and other species. Of course, it can't cover everything, but it gives helpful descriptions of different habitat zones (bushveld, grassland, forest, desert, Fynbos, wetlands, and the coast) as well as their typical inhabitants, a large section on mammals, including carnivores, grazers, and browsers as well as sea mammals, and a good section on birds, though you'll need a bird guidebook if you want to identify all the birds you see.

A very interesting section is the one on identifying tracks and scat. You can learn a lot from reading both.

I took this book on a two-week photo safari trip in northeast South Africa and was very pleased with it.

African safari April 11 2009

This is one of the better books for identifying African wildlife for anyone going on safari to southern Africa. If it has any fault at all it is that it tries to cover a very large subject in too few pages. But some may see that as a virtue.

This is a good safari companion. I used it in Zimbabwe.
