Where to Watch Birds in Africa is a field guide designed to help birders and general wildlife enthusiasts organize the most enriching trips possible throughout this great continent. From Morocco to Madagascar, this book presents over 200 bird-watching sites in detail and describes the species endemic to Africa. The traveler will find practical information on climate, transportation, accommodations, health, and safety as well as advice on a number of strategic questions: Where can we see birds that epitomize the continent? Which country supports the best cross-section of species and the most endemics? How many sites must be visited to see most of these birds? How much time do these trips take and when is the best time to go? Featuring over one hundred maps and fifty-one line drawings, this book is not only a guide but also a handy reference.

Following a chapter on how to use the book, there is an introduction to the continent and its birds. The countries, archipelagos, and islands are then dealt with alphabetically. General introductions to each country are followed by site details, which include bird lists; a list of other wildlife present, if applicable; and the latest information on where to look for the best birds.

Originally published in 1995.
