The wildlife of southern Africa is the major attraction for visitors to this popular region. This guide encompasses all countries south of the Zambezi and Kuene rivers: Botswana, Lesotho, Namibia, southern Mozambique, South Africa, Swaziland, and Zimbabwe. In the same format as the acclaimed Madagascar Wildlife it provides a colorful introduction to the mammals, birds, reptiles, and other wildlife, along with advice on how to make the most of a safari and even observing wildlife in everyday settings. The sheer range of habitats spanned by this region--grasslands, wetlands, desert, and bushveld--ensures that visitors have an almost unequalled opportunity for observing species in the wild, especially when the sealife and coral reefs of the coastline that fringes on two oceans are included. Accessible, comprehensive, and beautifully illustrated with around 300 photographs, this is a travelers' companion that will appeal both to the first-time visitor and the serious naturalist.
