Top Sightings in Kruger National Park

(2 customer reviews)


Checklist of Top Sightings in Kruger National Park encompasses carnivores, antelope and other mammals; snakes, lizards and other reptiles; frogs and toads; trees; and hundreds of birds of all kinds, classified by common features: Birds of Prey, Swimmers and Large Waders, LBJs, etc. The Contents list is colour-coded to making locating species easy. The IUCN Red List conservation status is given for all the mammals, as well as mammal population statistics where these are available. Relative toxicity of venom is recorded for all the snake species listed. There are special features on The Big Five, The Little Five and The Big Six. Wordsmiths Nature’s unique cross-referencing table removes the confusion caused by changes in genus and species names (for example, Go-away-bird / Lourie; Spurfowl /Francolin); and it facilitates finding birds that are known better by other names, such as the Neddicky and Gymnogene. The species lists in Top Sightings are extensive, and cover all the species visitors are most likely to see in Kruger National park and the adjacent reserves of the Great Limpopo Transfrontier Park.
