I have come to love wildlife, and because Im a photographer, I also love photographing wild animals. When I look into the eyes of an animal, I see a soul, and I want to get to know that soul. I belong to a civic group that brings disadvantaged youth to the Phoenix Zoo. Most of the youngsters have never visited a zoo before. When the tram makes the first turn and the children see the animals for the first time, their squeals and cheers of excitement bring me great joy. I want to bring that joyous first look to more people and further help them understand animals as complex beings just like you and me. Almost everybody has seen a giraffe, for example, but they have not had the opportunity to get to know that giraffe and feel a connection with it. I believe that if I can help more people actually see wildlife as they live and learn more about the animals, then more people will appreciate them and love them as I do, body and soul.

The wildlife of southern Africa is the major attraction for visitors to this popular region. This guide encompasses all countries south of the Zambezi and Kuene rivers: Botswana, Lesotho, Namibia, southern Mozambique, South Africa, Swaziland, and Zimbabwe. In the same format as the acclaimed Madagascar Wildlife it provides a colorful introduction to the mammals, birds, reptiles, and other wildlife, along with advice on how to make the most of a safari and even observing wildlife in everyday settings. The sheer range of habitats spanned by this region--grasslands, wetlands, desert, and bushveld--ensures that visitors have an almost unequalled opportunity for observing species in the wild, especially when the sealife and coral reefs of the coastline that fringes on two oceans are included. Accessible, comprehensive, and beautifully illustrated with around 300 photographs, this is a travelers' companion that will appeal both to the first-time visitor and the serious naturalist.
