This excellent book’s size belies its incredible utility. The perfect companion to any foray into the savannah, Game Drive includes not only beautiful photographs of a wide array of birds, mammals and reptiles, but informative text which is both extremely compact and highly comprehensive. All statistics that could conceivably help a viewer to identify, catalogue and learn about each animal are provided in concise and clear format. The Latin and colloquial names for each animal are included, along with the Afrikaans, French, German and Zulu names. The listings are given ratings for rarity of sightings, and each animal a tick box for viewers to mark upon sighting. A must-have for any game drive!
The books covers the region colloquially known as Greater Kruger, the most famous wildlife conservation area in southern Africa. It includes the world-renowned Kruger National Park, several privately owned game reserves, and a contractual park. This region also forms part of the much larger Great Limpopo Transfrontier Park, which spans international boundaries and includes neighbouring game reserves in Zimbabwe and Mozambique.
