Of all Africa's safari destinations, this is the most fertile. It is the best in Africa for seeing a variety of primate species with more than ten types of monkey. More than 1,000 bird species have been recorded here and you can encounter lions, elephants and buffaloes. Whether visitors want to climb the Mountains of the Moon, raft the headwaters of the Nile, or marvel at the tree-climbing lions of Ishasha, this edition of Philip Briggs' much-praised guide is the most comprehensive, with expanded coverage of gorilla tracking options and the best accommodation in every price bracket.
Philip Briggs has been exploring Africa since 1986, when he spent several months backpacking on a shoestring from Nairobi to Cape Town.
