HASH(0xb2ec5cb4) out of 5 stars Perfect Format April 19 2007
By Renee Thorpe - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This was hands-down the best wildlife guide we used when visiting the Galapagos Islands.

It's divided by islands but also has sections about the types of mammals, fish, birds, and reptiles for further, in-depth review.

Because visitors reach the islands one-at-a-time, in designated areas and trails, the book is organized exactly to the physical approaches. Really reads quickly, and to the point. Locations totally accurate about nesting areas and sea lion hangouts, but also describes the best geological landmarks. Will help you with itinerary design, with logging your sightings, remembering your trip, and help with virtually all species identification.

Possibly the most user-friendly book LP ever published.

HASH(0xb2ec5f00) out of 5 stars Reaction to Lonely Planet Watching Wildlife Galapagos May 14 2007
By B. Holland - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
In anticipation of an upcoming trip to the Galapagos, I looked at a bunch of books before deciding to purchase this one from Lonely Planet. I love the way the book is organized, taking each island and explaining the unique features of that island. After that, the animals and birds are listed so that you can cross reference everything. In addition, there are lots of helpful travel tips in the beginning chapters. Most importantly, the pictures are fantastic!!
HASH(0xb2ec5ec4) out of 5 stars Nice, comprehensive little guide book! Jan. 6 2014

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Perfect little book to bring along for a Galapagos cruise - or to use to research before heading there. Nicely layed out and illustrated. Still very accurate. Would recommend for anyone who is planning to visit the islands. Just to clarify: This will not replace a comprehensive book about flora / fauna - it's rather a general, well presented overview of what you can see on each island.

HASH(0xb2ec66cc) out of 5 stars The perfect souvenir! Jan. 7 2008
By K. Sendall - Published on
Format: Paperback
Very comprehensive and excellent detail. Every mammal, reptile, bird, and fish we delighted in during our Galapagos adventure is thoroughly covered. Detail that memories and photos could never provide.
