Review quote

"This is a very useful book and I highly recommend it to anyone traveling to southern Africa to observe wildlife. Study it before you leave on safari, or just purchase it and take an armchair safari that will cost a lot less!"--DRK, Wildlife Activist "This book is clearly directed to tourist photographers, but may well be of interest to academic and public libraries."--Frederic F. Burchsted, American Reference Books Annual
