            “I am not usually a fan of mammal, animal, or bird guides restricted to one particular park or recreation area. They are typically narrow in content, written more for the general tourist than for the birder or naturalist. Animals of Kruger National Park is the exception. Kruger is not your typical national park; at 22,000 km (including adjacent concessions), it’s the size of a small country. It is a major destination for 1.4 million visitors a year from all over the world, who come to see the big cats, the graceful antelopes, and the intriguing lizards. And of course, the birds, over 500 species. For those of us who mostly come to see the birds, this is the perfect complementary guide to creatures who are not birds.”
