Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This is a revised and expanded edition of the author's excellent African Safari: The Complete Guide to 10 Top Game Viewing Countries (LJ 7/87). Four additional countries treated as ``additional destinations'' in the first edition now have their own sections, and there are separate indexes for animals and birds. Photos have been added, and there are numerous maps and tables with a wealth of handy information, including a chart on ``What Is Best Seen Where.'' As both the state of the wildlife and the political conditions of the region are subject to frequent change, this updated edition should be welcomed by libraries serving travelers who are considering African destinations.-- Harold M. Ot ness, Southern Oregon State Coll. Lib., Ashland

Meet the Author


Mark Nolting is considered the expert on travel to Africa. He has spent over 30 years researching the continent of Africa. His intimate knowledge of its countries and its wildlife is unsurpassed. Each of the last six editions of AFRICA'S TOP WILDLIFE COUNTRIES has been considered the most comprehensive and accurate resource available on photographic safaris and vacations. There are over 100,000 copies in print.

As President of The Africa Adventure Company for the past 22 years, Mark and his staff have sent thousands of people on safari. Valuable feedback received from these clients along with Mark’s own research safaris (several per year) helps keep the new editions accurate, current and directed towards the reader's interests and needs. This is a huge bonus to the reader, as most authors are writing what they guess is of greatest interest to the reader or according to a formula set out by the publisher.

He is often asked to corroborate the accuracy of articles written for major travel magazines and newspapers concerning travel to Africa.

Mark is also the author of the AFRICAN SAFARI JOURNAL (5th edition – ISBN 978-939895-11-3) - a wildlife/botany guide, language guide, trip organizer, safari directory, map directory, checklist and journal all in one. There are over 100,000 copies in print.
