I highly recommend this book to anyone who's taking a trip to South Africa to see wildlife. The book is very descriptive, giving you straight facts and no 'filler' information. It features over 950 different species, which is truly amazing. There is a map alongside each species showing it's distribution across the country. I will be using this book for a long while yet, and the information will be very useful when I head out to South Africa later this year.
