There will be a few photographs per species and these will include flight shots where relevant as well as different plumages - juvenile, female, etc. At the back will feature a list of remaining vagrants and rarities (140 species), 18 species per page, without maps but with a one-line comment on their status (e.g. Recorded once at Pafuri in 1928). This will give the book a more comprehensive coverage for more serious birders who may like to see coverage of all species recorded in the park."

Safari Nation opens new lines of inquiry in the study of national parks in Africa and the rest of the world. The Kruger National Park is South Africa’s most iconic nature reserve, renowned for its rich flora and fauna. According to author Jacob Dlamini, there is another side to the park, a social history neglected by scholars and popular writers alike in which blacks (meaning Africans, Coloureds, and Indians) occupy center stage. Safari Nation details the ways in which black people devoted energies to conservation and to the park over the course of the twentieth century—engagement that transcends the stock (black) figure of the laborer and the poacher. By exploring the complex and dynamic ways in which blacks of varying class, racial, religious, and social backgrounds related to the Kruger National Park, and with the help of previously unseen archival photographs, Dlamini’s narrative also sheds new light on how and why Africa’s national parks—often derided by scholars as colonial impositions—survived the end of white rule on the continent. Relying on oral histories, photographs, and archival research, Safari Nation engages both with African historiography and with ongoing debates about the “land question,” democracy, and citizenship in South Africa.

Fair Game tells the story of the Kruger's hidden history and heritage, from its establishment as the Sabi Reserve in 1898 to its eventual declaration as a national park, and beyond. It's an engrossing tale filled with stubborn personalities, twists of fate, unlikely heroes, greedy villains and (luckily) a very happy ending. So, prepare yourself for a grand historical safari as we recount the little-known tale of an unwanted wasteland that grew into the one of the greatest game reserves in the world.The Kruger National Park is an internationally renowned wildlife sanctuary and one of South Africa's top tourist attractions. However, this wasn't always the case. For the first 30 years of the park's existence, it was very unpopular and many people downright hated the idea of a reserve dedicated to the preservation of animals ('But what's the point of looking at the things?', one critic decried). In fact, without the dedication and fortitude of a handful of champions, the park would likely have been abandoned, diluted or deproclaimed altogether. Also included: a comprehensive planning guide and custom maps to help you make the most of your visit to the Kruger National Park.
