This fun, child-friendly guide is jam-packed with information and tips on how to pack and prepare for your safari. There’s a bush-survival checklist, an illustrated guide for tracking spoor, as well as an index of African Wildlife with scientific names and translations into 15 languages. The book includes information on national parks, heritage sites and Southern African constellations. The real fun, however, is in learning the collective nouns for Africa’s wildlife. Have you encountered a canteen of spoonbills? Or, a fever of stingrays, a fondness of beetles and a destruction of wild cats? Collective Nouns for Africa includes some decidedly quirky entries too – ever heard of a ‘victory of vuvuzelas’?
