"...the majority of images are really impressive, each chosen for a practical reason, sometimes annotated to stress a point.

The authors clearly know what they are doing. For decades they have mapped their sightings, and in explaining how they achieved their images, they’re sharing invaluable tips on understanding wildlife behavior, reading the signs and getting yourself in the best position for the shot. 
There is a phenomenal wealth of information here; real substance."

the 2nd hide overlooks the river on the western side of the camp next to the boma....both hides are perfect for bird watching and to watch game as they come to the river for a drink. 

If you are lucky you might just see the elusive Leopard as it comes down to river.

Sirheni Dam viewed from chalet number 15. The dam has since been breached so there is no longer year-round water in front of the camp. In a way it's good as you see more animals walking in the dry riverbed.

"It's 764 pages of the most amazing information. It consists of, well, everything really. Photography info...area info...hidden roads..special places....what they have seen almost road by road. Where to stay just outside the information. It takes quite a lot to impress me but I really feel that this book, which was 7 years in the making, is exceptional."            - Janey Coetzee, South Africa
