FROM THE PUBLISHER:

With more than ten million copies sold, the National Audubon Society Field Guide series leaves North American shores for the first time to explore the world's most splendid natural environment. The first and only field guide to offer comprehensive covrage of the African continent, this guide sends the reader on a virtual safari. All the birds, mammals, reptiles and insects are brought to life, and the parks and reserves for which the continent is famous are described in thorough detail. This guide is packed with 577 stunning color photographs of African habitats and animals, and provides a wealth of information on more than 850 species compiled by veteran safari leaders and experts in African wildlife.

REVIEW QUOTES:

"A magnificent guide that sets out to broaden outsiders' appreciation of African fauna. Most of its 577 colour photographs are excellent." Economist
