The Field Guide to Mammals of Southern Africa comes highly recommended by Ray Mears, following extensive use in the field. It is especially useful reading for those attending our Tracking in Namibia expedition, as well as anyone partaking in a safari in southern Africa.

Southern Africa has a wealth of mammal species - a total of 337 in fact, all of which are covered in this fully revised, comprehensive field guide. From the more celebrated species (such as elephant, lion, buffalo, leopard and rhino), to the smaller animals (shrews, genets, suricates and bats), and the diverse marine mammals that are found in our oceans (seals, whales and dolphins), this book covers them all.

As a revised edition, this field guide comes in full colour, with colour-coded family groupings. It has been extensively revised to include the most up-to-date information and distribution maps, as well as new images where available. Spoor and size icons are included for quick reference with each mammal entry, and skulls have been added, grouped at the back of the book for easy comparison. In addition to detailed descriptions of each species, the text offers insights into key identification characters, typical behaviour, preferred habitat, food choice and reproduction.

The authors, Chris and Tilde Stuart, are well known for the quality of their research in the books they have written. As founders of the African-Arabian Wildlife Research Centre and the African Carnivore Research Programme, Chris and Mathilde Stuart work in the fields of biodiversity surveying, travel, photography and filming. A field ecologist and medical doctor respectively, they have written numerous books including Tracks & Signs of Southern and East Africa, as well as various scientific papers and popular articles on a wide range of topics.
