Lonely Planet: The world's leading travel guide publisher

Get up close and personal with Southern Africa's amazing wildlife with this all-in-one safari guide.

Cheetah and springbok race in a 100km/hour sprint to the death in the Kalahari; a vast grey mass of elephants surround you on their way to the riverbank; a million flamingos lay a pink blanket over the mudflats. Whether you're on a top-shelf luxury safari or going it alone in a rented minivan, prepare for the wildlife experience of your life. This guide covers South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Malawi and Zambia.
