For each of the species listed, there is a full-colour photograph, distribution map and brief facts about its life history and behaviour.
- An accompanying CD with 76 common animal calls
- Photographs and distribution maps for each species
- Interesting facts, including habitat, diet and time of calls
An invaluable resource for nature lovers of all ages, this CD and book will provide a new way of recognising the varied sounds of Africa's wild areas.
