9780958489102: OKAVANGO: A Field Guide (Southbound Field Guides)

After The South African Bushveld-A Field Guide from the Waterberg, this is the second comprehensive field guide to be published in southern Africa that covers a detailed cross-section of the most prominent animals, plants, birds, fish, insects and tracks and signs of a particular region. It includes a detailed natural history section for a greater understanding of the geology, habitats and ecology of the region. This book negates the need to carry more than one guide book when visiting the Okavango. Contents include: Geology, Habitats, Ecology, Mammals (and diseases), Birds, Reptiles, Amphibians, Scorpions, Spiders, Insects, Butterflies and Moths, Fish, Flowers, Trees, Grasses, Tracks and Signs, Fungi, Aquatic Plants and more. Lee Gutteridge was born in Sheffield, England, in 1973. His family moved to South Africa in 1982. Since his first encounters with snakes in the mid-eighties he has been passionate about African wildlife. He is now a professional field guide with 19 years' of bush experience. He is the principal trainer of the Entabeni Nature Guide Training School. Passionate about the learning and sharing of knowledge, his first book, the best-selling South African Bushveld-A Field Guide from the Waterberg, was published in 2008. He has also co-authored San Rock Art: A Field Guide (2011). He lives in the eastern Waterberg with his wife Sarah and his two children, Kellen and Savannah. Tony Reumerman was born and raised on the Highveld of South Africa and from an early age developed an interest in bird, insect and plant life. He was schooled at St. John Bosco College in Daleside where his interest in natural history unfolded, becoming an obsession during his years as a soldier and later as a microbiology student. Excursions into wildlife areas in southern Africa became so regular that he decided to pursue his passion and work as a field guide. He was to spend eight years guiding, managing and training other guides at Sabi Sabi Game Reserve in the Kruger region before moving, in 2000, to the Okavango where he joined Wilderness Safaris. He heads up the training team and has an avid interest in mammal behaviour, photography, botany and ornithology. Tony is based in Maun where he lives with his wife Andrea and son Aidan.

Review:

Oh my - what a stunning book! I cannot thank you enough - truly fabulous and everything you want to know is in it! Every guide, management couple and camp/lodge (and me) etc should have a copy of this book, and everyone else with an interest in wildlife and the environment too. It is superb and you must be really pleased. I will make sure that all here know about the book and that it s a definite one to add to the collections. Again, I am bowled over! --Kate Pirie - African & Indian Explorations
