Swaziland from the Author: Mike Unwin. Swaziland is Africa's second smallest country and its last remaining absolute monarchy. Dwarfed by neighbouring South Africa, this tiny, landlocked nation punches well above its weight in terms of both nature and culture. Author Mike Unwin explores the excellent wildlife reserves and wild hiking trails offering waterfalls, rock art and prolific flora and birdlife, and introduces travellers to the country's rich and varied landscapes. His personal insights, together with colourful anecdotes provide entertaining insights, give an insider's perspective. He divides Swaziland into four distinct regions, with detailed maps and itineraries for timescales from one weekend to one month. It includes a practical guide to neighbouring attractions easily accessed from Swaziland, including Maputo (Mozambique) and the Kruger Park (South Africa), both less than one hour's drive away. The natural history section offers far greater detail and more accurate information than found elsewhere, drawing on the author's extensive insider knowledge and experience.

Mammals Of Southern Africa And Their Tracks Signs from the Author: Lee Gutteridge. Tracking is a much-loved yet difficult subject that attracts at least some of the attention of almost every bush-goer who ventures into the wild places of southern Africa. The ability to accurately read difficult, partial, or little-seen signs left in the soil or sand is rare and largely the domain of professionals. However, by making use of this comprehensive guide, anyone who applies him- or herself can begin to decipher these natural hieroglyphs etched on the ground. In this volume, highly accurate sketches of animal tracks are combined with a wide selection of extremely varied photographs that provide an all-round impression of the signs the animals may leave behind. This field guide to mammal tracks and signs also serves as an ID guide to the mammals of southern Africa as full color photographs of each animal are included.

Field Guide To Mammals Of Southern Africa from the Author: Chris Stuart. Southern Africa is home to an extraordinary wealth of mammal species: they range from the smaller, more elusive animals, such as shrews, genets, suricates and bats, to the well-known and charismatic creatures – elephant, lion, buffalo, giraffe and rhino. The region is also home to many marine species – seals, dolphins and whales – that inhabit both coastal and deeper waters. Since it was first published in 1988, Field Guide to Mammals of Southern Africa has become the most popular guide to the mammals of the region. This extensively revised new edition will help readers identify not only the iconic larger animals, but also to clarify what would otherwise be a bewildering array of often-similar species. Colour keys make it easy to locate family groupings, while the introduction helps to put individual species into context. The text incorporates the characteristic features of each mammal, be they land- or marine-based, including typical behaviour, preferred habitat, food choices and reproduction. Comprising 350 species accounts, 470 photographs and over 275 distribution maps, as well as selected animal–human size comparisons, spoor drawings and skull photographs, this updated guide advances our understanding of the subcontinent's mammals.
