This book has just about everything you need for your African safari. Be sure to fill out as many of the information pages before you leave for your trip. Reading through this journal, I was trying to think of something that was missing from this book. I couldn't think of anything I would like to see added to this book. The author has thought of practically everything.
The mammal, bird, reptile, tree, and insect guides have illustrated color pictures and quick descriptions of each species. There are places to check off or list exactly what you saw on your safari plus a more comprehensive checklist near the back of the safari journal. The descriptions are a bit short for my liking, however if they were longer the book may be too big or heavy to take along on a safari.
I really liked the trivia tidbits at the bottom of the personal journal pages such as "Did you know? Lions sleep or doze for up to twenty hours a day."
If you are planning an African safari, I highly recommend getting a copy of African Safari Journal by Mark W. Nolting available at Amazon.com.
