Home to the Serengeti National Park, Ngorongoro Crater, and Mount Kilimanjaro, Tanzania offers some of the finest big game watching in the world, from elephants and rhinos to chimpanzees and lions. This field guide covers all the larger mammals of Tanzania, including marine mammals and some newly discovered species. Detailed accounts are provided for more than 135 species, along with color photos, color illustrations of marine mammals, and distribution maps. Accounts for land species give information on identification, subspecies, similar species, ecology, behavior, distribution, conservation status, and where best to see each species. The guide also features plates with side-by-side photographic comparisons of species that are easily confused, as well as first-time-ever species checklists for every national park.

  • The definitive, most up-to-date field guide to the larger mammals of Tanzania, including marine mammals
  • Features detailed species accounts and numerous color photos throughout
  • Provides tips on where to see each species
  • Includes species checklists for every national park

"The information is up-to-date, accurate and inclusive. Whether you plan to visit Tanzania or a neighbouring country or simply like to learn something about mammals around the world, you'll like this one."--Geoff Carpentier, North Durham Nature Newsletter

"[A] fantastic field guide. . . . The compact, dense paperback is perfect for field use. . . . There are also very helpful sections on where/how to watch mammals in Tanzania and on national parks and protected areas. This exemplary field guide is among the best this reviewer has seen; he would not leave for Tanzania without it."--Choice

"This book is an absolute must for a person going on a safari in Tanzania. It is better than the other mammal guides I own or have seen. It will set you up on where to look. It will help you separate similar species and it will add wonder to your trip."--Roy John, Canadian Field-Naturalist

"I would . . . recommend this book as a valuable addition to your field guide collection, whether you are resident in the region or a visitor."--Nigel Hunter, Swara
