Princeton: Princeton University Press, 2012. Octavo, paperback, colour photographs, map.
A photographic guide featuring the bird species likely to be encountered by visitors to the Masai Mara National Reserve in Kenya. Beautifully presented in an easy-to-use format and using a no-jargon approach, this book contains over 300 stunning images covering over 200 species. This guide is accessible and informative, rather than purely identification-based. A handy, brief introduction provides visitors with background on the habitats of the national park, and the guide's habitat-based approach makes it simple to identify any bird species according to where it is found. Based on the firsthand experiences of the author, this guide is an ideal companion to all those visiting the national reserve and to bird aficionados interested in learning more about the region.
