South Africa's Kruger National Park is one of the largest and most iconic conservation areas in Africa. Habitats range from wide-open savannah and rugged thornveld to broadleaved mopani woodland. This microhabitat variation gives Kruger a phenomenal diversity of some 520 bird species, half of which are resident. From Africa's most extraordinary eagles, like the scarlet-faced Bateleur, to electric-colored glossy-starlings and jewel-like finches, Kruger offers an avian celebration of form and color. It is also a crucial conservation area, supporting South Africa's largest viable populations of vultures, eagles, and large terrestrial birds. This field guide offers a unique window into the world of Kruger's birds. More than 500 stunning color photographs illustrate the 259 most frequently encountered species, and a habitat-based approach assists in identification. The authoritative text provides key information about identification, habitat, behavior, biology, and conservation. The guide contains information likely to be new to even the most experienced birders, but is written in a nontechnical style that makes it accessible to anyone.

The National Parks Board has been entrusted with the task of preserving the regions of outstanding natural beauty and wild life in the Republic of South Africa for the enjoyment of present and future generations. It is, therefore, not a limited mandate. On the contrary, it is an extremely complicated one containing two apparently conflicting objectives, namely, the conservation of Nature in its original state and the provision of amenities to enable people to enjoy direct access to the beauty of Nature. Therefore this book will give the reader a clear insight into the diverse activities of the Parks Board.
