=A guide to the best birdwatching locations
The essential companion to all local bird field guides, this book outlines and describes 39 key bird routes and more than 330 birding sites (and their associated birds). All sites are ranked into one of three categories of priority: essential (the region's best); excellent (top sites but expendable to a time-limited visitor) and local interest (ideal for those looking for new areas to explore). Sites include practical details of access, best times to visit, habitat diversity and the birds that occur there and general natural history; the more important sites feature a detailed map. A guide to finding the region's top 150 birds and an annotated checklist conclude the book. Includes a folding map covering 39 bird routes and over 330 birding sites in Madagascar, South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Angola, Mozambique, Zambia, Malawi.
