On Safari in Africa is unlike any other travel guide to Africa. This is not a "where to go, where to stay, what to see" style of travel guide, rather, it is more a travel companion that aims to pick up where your Africa Travel Specialist leaves off (and even acts as your safari guide along the way). Along with pre-departure information, packing and travel tips it is also a comprehensive insight into the wildlife, landscapes, people and issues that surround the safari world.
Aimed at both first time travellers to Africa as well as those who have been on safari before, On Safari in Africa is prefaced on the notion that the more you know about a subject the more you will come to fully appreciate it - the more you learn, the more your fascination grows. On Safari in Africa seeks to heighten that fascination, and in so doing, enhance the safari experience.
On Safari in Africa has been designed to illustrate just how you can get more out of your safari to Africa. The process starts with some background on Africa; provides a check list of what you need to do before you leave home; takes you through what to expect on safari, including safari jargon and your safari guide; teaches you the nuances of learning to observe and question all that you see and hear; explains what we know about the habitats and animals you will encounter, their behaviour and physiology; provides you with a wealth of interesting facts about the wildlife; and introduces you to many other aspects of an African safari including birding, trees, insects and wild flowers and the night sky. A reference section discusses the people's of Africa, photographic tips and finishes with a comprehensive glossary of safari terms and definitions.
