Sorry to say, but I found it rather disappointing. One person's personal opinion.

i thought it was just okay. definitely more for the 'adventure' traveler,but still nice to see the options out there. not super helpful in practial planning a standard safari as is often discussed on this forum.

I didn't even think it was geared for the travelers (except one short blurb), let along for safaris.

You are both right, I should have been more specific with the fact that it was the photographs that were inspiring to me.

Has anyone checked out the web cam they have linked to on National Geographics website? It's at Mashatu in southern Botswana.

http://www7.nationalgeographic.com/n...a/wildcam.html

I've watched a couple of times and it's pretty cool.


The person that sent the link to me also said this - Try it in the morning, your time, that's when
someone is controlling it remotely. I saw a croc try and get an
antelope yesterday. You have to watch it with "RealOne Player", so if
the link opens to some other kind of player it will not work.

Thank you, Nyamera.

I have only read the first few pages (my husband keeps getting his mitts on it first!). I thought the article by Jared (?) Diamond, discussing the relationships among history, geography, and politics, was excellent. I've looked at some of the photographs, and they're, as you would expect, very revealing.

I agree with you Celia it has some good information in there. It is definately not an issue aimed at travellers but rather one aimed at giving a cross sectional view of the many different facets that make up Africa.
