Insiders Guide: Top wildlife Photogaphy Spots in South Africa.
I’ve ensured that the text is aimed specifically at wildlife photographers because I want you to get straight out into the field and start getting good results. It details over 26 wildlife spots across South Africa, giving you information on the species that occur in each, and exactly where to go to find them.

The book is mostly based on personal experiences, and I have written it as such – with much of the text coming from my own observations. It is intended to be the one guide that will help you get the wildlife photographs you have always wanted.
