We are delighted with the books and think they would make a fine addition to your safari (and bookshelf!), however, we don’t expect you to take our word for it, have a read of what others have to say…

Animals of the Masai Mara

“This is the guidebook for every child, and child inside of us, between the ages of 5 and 105 that has ever dreamt of learning about the fascinating animals seen on a safari in Africa.”–Gabriel Thoumi, MongaBay.com

“Like its avian companion volume, you will love this book–even if you never visit the Masai Mara!”–Devorah Bennu, GrrlScientist

“If you are going to visit the Masai Mara, this is a must have book. But I recommend this book equally to anyone who wants to take an imaginary journey to this part of the Serengeti. It is a fascinating book about the world’s most charismatic community of animals.”–DRK, Wildlife Activist

Birds of the Masai Mara

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”–

“If you are visiting the Masai Mara, this book will serve you well.”–Devorah Bennu, GrrlScentist

Animals of the Serengeti: And Ngorongoro Conservation Area

“The book is uniquely peppered with anecdotes and tips from six local safari guides working in the region. This human touch is a nice feature, and it’s likely you’ll come across one of the ‘Big 6′ on safari in the region. . . . Animals of the Serengeti is an accessible and attractive photographic field guide, appropriate for the wildlife enthusiast who is looking for more than simply not going on safari empty handed.”–Derek Kverno,Birding in Tanzania

“Essential book if you are heading for the Serengeti. . . . Excellent.”–Derek Moore, Derek Bird Brain

Animals of the Serengeti: And Ngorongoro Conservation Area by Adam Scott Kennedy and Vicki Kennedy is an easy-to-use guidebook that is also very readable. . . . The book is lightweight with each page filled with pictures and brief scientific explanations for each animal. Still, what I find most intriguing about the book, which I also think you will also enjoy, is the incorporation of short first-hand stories told by local guides. . . . A great read.”–Gabriel Thoumi, MongaBay.com

Birds of the Serengeti: And Ngorongoro Conservation Area

“The bird you see in the field is often exactly what you find in the book, and equally clear is its habitat, such as a thorny acacia branch or a forest floor littered with dead leaves. Kennedy also avoids using intimidating jargon to describe bird species, opting instead to keep the tone of his descriptions light hearted while still being informative. . . . The overwhelming majority of photographs are of exceptionally high quality.”–Derek Kverno, Birding in Tanzania

“Essential book if you are heading for the Serengeti. . . . Excellent.”–Derek Moore, Derek Bird Brain

Birds of the Serengeti: And Ngorongoro Conservation Area by Adam Scott Kennedy may be the best birding book available covering the general safari region for northwestern Tanzania and southern Kenya. Filled with firsthand accounts, excellent photographs, and broken down into chapters by habitats, Birds of the Serengeti: And Ngorongoro Conservation Area is the guidebook for the broader non-scientific community.”–Gabriel Thoumi, MongaBay.com
