Birds of the Masai Mara Checklist

Birds of the Masai Mara is a remarkably beautiful photographic guide featuring the bird species likely to be encountered by visitors to the popular Masai Mara National Reserve in Kenya. With an eye-catching layout, easy-to-use format, and no-jargon approach, the book contains more than 300 stunning photographs covering over 200 species of birds and is accessible and informative, rather than purely identification-based. A handy, brief introduction provides visitors with background on the habitats of the national park, and the guide's habitat-based approach makes it simple to identify any bird species according to where it is found. Based on the firsthand experiences of the author, Birds of the Masai Mara is an ideal companion to all those visiting the national reserve and to bird aficionados interested in learning more about the region.

  • The only photographic guide to focus solely on the bird species of the Masai Mara National Reserve
  • More than 300 remarkable photographs covering over 200 species
  • Accessible text explores bird species behavior and species etymology
  • A brief and handy introduction examines the habitats of the Masai Mara
  • Easy-to-use habitat-based layout makes exciting birdwatching easy

Review:

"If you are visiting the Masai Mara, this book will serve you well."--Devorah Bennu, GrrlScentist

"Birds of the Masai Mara is perfect for its declared audience. . . . [I]f copies find their way into the hands of the driver guides, and into the schools that surround the park, perhaps a new generation of people will be inspired to ensure the region's wonderful avifauna will continue to prosper."--John Fanshawe, "IBIS"--
