Safari Companion: A Guide to Watching African Mammals (Paperback)

£22.50
Usually despatched within 3 weeks.

Synopsis

Since its original publication in 1993, The Safari Companion has been a much-loved field guide to observing and understanding the behaviour of African mammals. An indispensable tool for naturalists traveling to Africa, the book also acknowledges the enthusiasm of those watching these magnificent animals at zoos and wildlife parks, and on film.







The Safari Companion enables readers to recognize and interpret visible behavioural activities, such as courtship rituals, territorial marking, aggression and care of young. Each account of over 80 species includes a behavioural table in which the unique actions of the hoofed mammals, carnivores and primates are described for easy reference. In addition, useful maps show the major national boundaries, vegetation zones, and game parks relevant to the guide.







The book includes an extensive glossary, as well as tips on wildlife photography, a list of organizations working to protect African wildlife, and advice on where and when to see the animals.

Customer Reviews

This is a book for the keen wildlife watcher and should not be mistaken for a field guide (in this regard the eminent The Kingdon Field Guide to African Mammals comes highly recommended). Whilst the illustrations are limited in numbers and generally rather simple, the detail with which families, tribes, species and sub-species are described, with regard to physiology and distribution as well as to observable behaviour in various different social contexts, allows for easy and accurate identifications. With a bit of study this book will assist the reader to quickly identify what to look out for in certain habitats and when spotting individual or groups of particular mammals.
