Reviews

Winner of the 2001 Best Bird Book - Africa, Worldtwitch "For birders with an interest in the region and those planning a trip, look no further. With the publication of this guide we have distilled into one book all the good elements of what has gone before but better... The plates are the book's tour de force and are simply outstanding... This is by far the best and most exciting guide available for anywhere in Africa."--Ken Arber, Surfbirds.com "The illustrations in this guide are of a very high standard and show the detail needed for field identification whilst remaining of an artistic quality that makes the book an attractive object as well as a useful one... The brief descriptions are excellent and the language fresh and punchy... A very fine field-guide indeed and sets a new standard for regional African guides."--Fatbirder.com "As soon as you open the book, you'll realise that the standard of artwork is exceptional. The text is also of an unusually high standard... If you are planning a trip to Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Rwanda or Burundi this is now unquestionably the most valuable book you can buy. And if you aren't yet planning a trip there this is the perfect book to get you dreaming."--Birdguides.com "If East Africa is in your dreams, this should fill the bill."--Charles E. Keller, Indiana Audubon Quarterly
