Riassunto: Western South Africa is one of the world's greatest biodiversity hotspots and is famous among international and local birders alike for the remarkable suite of birds that are found here and nowhere else. This ecotourism guide details how and where to find these species, as well as a few other ecotourism attractions such as big game, whales and flowers. Over 100 birding sites are linked into practical routes that encompass the whole of southern and western South Africa, ranging from the Cape Flora of Cape Town's mountainous environment, to the famed inland desert regions of Namaqualand and the Kalahari. The routes are well served with detailed maps and photographs illustrating the most sought after birds and their environments. Time-limited visitors are informed of exactly how to get to each of the region's most rewarding birding sites, what can be found there, and the best times and seasons to visit. Also included are practical suggestions for trip planning, seabirding expeditions, and a comprehensive annotated bird list.
