Die wildstreke van Suider-Afrika is uiteenlopend wat betref die landskap asook die dierelewe wat daar voorkom. Elke ekosisteem het unieke elemente maar ook uiteenlopende fasette wat met mekaar in wisselwerking is en nie in isolasie waardeer kan word nie. Die bome en plante voorsien die verhoog waarop die dieregroepe hul bestaan kan uitspeel - van die kleinste insek tot die grootste olifant. Hierdie boek bied reisigers wat Suider-Afrika vir die eerste keer besoek, asook meer ervare natuurliefhebbers, 'n toeganklike gids tot die gedragswyses van wilde diere.
- 'n Alles-in-een-gids wat die algemeenste soogdiere, voels, reptiele, paddas, insekte, spinnekoppe, skerpioene, bome en blomplante dek wat in die streek voorkom.
- Lesersvriendelike teks en meer as 900 asemrowende foto's verklap wat die kreature van die Afrika-wildernis doen en waarom hulle dit doen, asook watter rol elkeen in die komplekse web van die natuur speel.
- Inligting is verklarend en beskryf gedrag, pleks van die ritse tegniese data tipies van ander veldgidse.
- 'n Kleurvolle en verbeeldingryke uitleg betrek die leser visueel by die inhoud.
- Ander kenmerke sluit in verspreidingskaarte, dierspore, ikone en tabelle vir vinnige identifisering.
- Met die Briza Klankleser ('n opsionele ekstra) kan die leser luister na die geluide wat soogdiere, voels, paddas en ander diere maak, asook na die uitspraak van die wetenskaplike name van al die diere en plante wat in die boek verskyn.

What the herd taught me about love, courage and survival

A blonde, chic Parisienne, Françoise never expected to find herself living on a South African game reserve. But when she fell in love with renowned conservationist Lawrence Anthony her life took an unexpected turn. Lawrence died in 2012 and Françoise was left to face the tough reality of running Thula Thula without him, even though she knew very little about conservation. She was short on money, poachers were threatening their rhinos, and one of their elephants was charging Land Rovers on game drives and terrifying guests.

There was no time to mourn when Thula Thula's human and animal family were depending on her. How Françoise survived and Thula Thula thrived is beautifully described in this charming, funny and poignant book. Their elephant herd, rescued by Lawrence, shared Françoise's grief at his passing but over time forged a new relationship with her. One day a baby, Tom, became separated from the herd and found his way into Françoise's kitchen. Another day there was a desperate race against time to save a baby who had a snare wrapped round his face and couldn't open his mouth to suckle. Meanwhile Françoise fulfilled her dream of building a rescue centre for orphaned rhinos and other wildlife. Abandoned hippo baby Charlie, who hated water, joined the centre's rhinos and quickly became best friends with a little girl rhino called Makhosi. The traumatised babies had round the clock care, including an unlikely nursemaid in the form of a German Shepherd called Duma. If you loved Lawrence's The Elephant Whisperer, or just want to spend time with some very special animals, then you won't want to miss this sparkling book.

Can horses feel shame? Do deer grieve? Why do roosters deceive hens? We tend to assume that we are the only living things able to experience feelings but have you ever wondered what's going on in an animal's head? From the leafy forest floor to the inside of a bee hive, The Inner Life of Animals opens up the animal kingdom like never before. We hear the stories of a grateful humpback whale, of a hedgehog who has nightmares, and of a magpie who commits adultery; we meet bees that plan for the future, pigs who learn their own names and crows that go tobogganing for fun. And at last we find out why wasps exist.

After centuries of relative isolation, the Karoo - South Africa's parched heartland - is a latecomer to the tourist industry. What was once viewed as a harsh and desolate place of limited attraction is rapidly gaining popularity with visitors who now make the Karoo their destination, keen to partake of its legendary charm, its extraordinary flora and the resurgence of wildlife that once again populates its plains.

Wild Karoo documents Mitch Reardon's 4,000-kilometre journey of discovery through the region. The book focuses on:
local nature conservation in all its facets
the game, large and small - some recently reintroduced - plus birds, reptiles and invertebrates
the unique, arid-adapted flora
the landscape and geology
the history and lifestyle of the people who have made a home here
plans to combine public and private protected land to create wildlife corridors between isolated parks, re-establishing old migration routes and so reversing some of the effects of human settlement
Beautifully written, and illustrated with evocative photographs, this book is a must read for anyone interested in travel, wildlife and the environment.

Canned lion hunting sprang to the world's attention with the 2015 launch of the documentary, Blood Lions. This movie blew the cover off a brutal industry that has burgeoned in the last decade or so, operating largely under the radar of public concern.

In Cuddle Me Kill Me, veteran wildlife campaigner Richard Peirce reveals horrifying facts about the industry. He tells
The true story of two male lions rescued from breeding farms
The exploitation and misery of these apex predators when they are bred in captivity
How young cubs are removed from their mothers mere hours after birth
How they are first used for petting by an adoring (and paying) public
Their subsequent use for 'walking with lions' tourism
And how, in the final stage of exploitation, they are served up in fenced enclosure for execution by canned hunters - or simply shot by breeders for the value of their carcass, a prized product in the East.
Well researched by Peirce with the help of an undercover agent, and illustrated with photos taken along the way, this is a disturbing and passionate plea to end commercial captive lion breeding and the repurposing of wildlife to cater for human greed.

Ninety percent of the world's megafauna (its larger creatures) have disappeared since humans migrated from Africa and fanned out across the rest of the world. Within a very short time the megafauna - mammoths, mastodons, woolly rhinoceros and the huge carnivores that preyed upon them were extinct. Only Africa seems to have escaped: not unscathed, but not entirely vanquished either.

This book:
describes the history and extent of human impact on the worlds wildlife (marine included), good and bad;
it examines, in particular, the status of wildlife in Africa - the world's last great megafaunal sanctuary;
and it questions whether Africa's wildlife has reached its lowest ebb, and whether it is about to witness the turn of the tide?
The author sounds a note of cautious optimism: conservation initiatives have gained a new urgency in the 21st century, and governments in Africa and elsewhere are showing increasing resolve to tackle poaching. Vast transfrontier parks, many still in development, have the potential to provide a sustainable habitat for the continent's megafauna.

If we can muster both local and international support, name and shame the rogue nations, and build a practical conservation model that does not conflict with human needs, then Africa's wildlife can perhaps be saved.
