Tanzania offers some of the finest wildlife watching in the world. Its protected areas, which include the iconic Serengeti National Park, Ngorongoro Crater, and Mount Kilimanjaro, are famous for their density and diversity of large mammals. This field guide covers all the larger mammals of Tanzania, including marine mammals. Detailed accounts are provided for more than 135 species, some of which have only recently been discovered, and include superb color photos, color illustrations of marine mammals, and up-to-date distribution maps. Accounts for the land mammals give information on identification; similar species; habitats and social behavior; distribution; population, status, and threats; and where best to look for the species. The guide also features comparative photographic plates for those groups of species that are easily misidentified. It provides, for the first time, species checklists for every national park in Tanzania.
