Beautifully illustrated in colour, this new series of pocket guides are more than where and how-to books, although they all give essential information for travellers. They provide a wealth of concise information on the areas they cover, giving a chapter in each book on the subject's geology, paleontology, archaeology, climate and history. Bvumba is the beautifully mountaineous region of eastern Zimbabwe. Sections include the flora and fauna, botanical gardens, golf, walks and drives. The Hwange guide covers the National Park, mammals, birds, trees and shrubs, reptiles, and butterflies; and also has a checklist for mammals, birds, trees and shrubs. The guide to Kariba tells the story of Operation Noah, the rescue of the animals when the lake was damned; and there is a section of Matusadona National Park, on the southern side of the Lake. There are sections also on mammals, reptiles, fish, birds, butterflies and insects, and checklists on mammals, birds, trees and shrubs.
