The Wildebeest's Review of Birding Hotspots

The Wildebeest reviewing a book

This little booklet was published by Africa Birds and Birding and was written by Trevor Hardaker. Despite its size it is jam-packed with information and photographs.

The book contains write-ups on 30-something birding locations from around the country. The choice of locations features most of the places that you would expect in such a booklet, but there are one or two surprise inclusions.

The accounts for each location feature enough information to get you interested in visiting the place as well as tips on what you might find where. As mentioned above it has plenty of photographs which, as you would expect from this publisher, are of excellent quality.
