Southern African Wildlife Travel Guide, Bradt 2022
This new, thoroughly revised edition of Bradt’s Southern Africa Wildlife guide provides an overview of all southern African wildlife – not only ‘big game’ and other large mammals, but also birds, reptiles, amphibians and invertebrates. Excellent for independent travellers, it is reliable as a standalone guide combining both wildlife and visitor information, and is also a perfect complement to traditional field guides. Countries covered include Botswana, Lesotho, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa, Eswatini and Zimbabwe, with Malawi and Zambia both added to this new edition. Colour photographs illustrate all key species and the engaging text extends beyond basic identification features to illuminate the natural history and ecology of the wildlife that visitors will encounter. Text has been updated throughout to reflect the latest conservation initiatives and wildlife population figures.
Included are a practical guide to tracks and signs, plus top tips for optimising your wildlife experience, as well as a ‘where to go’ overview which outlines the key wildlife attractions of each country and, together with a seasonal highlights calendar, enables visitors to plan a safari that suits their interests.
