Meerkats by David Macdonald
Photographer Nigel Dennis spent two years in the Kalahari Gemsbok National Park, during which time he was afforded opportunities for photography which few others have enjoyed. The photographs provide insight into the private lives, behaviour and habits of these curious creatures, and capture them in many moods and in a wide variety of daily activities. It is accompanied by an informative and extremely readable text which documents the life of these animals in their desert habitat, examining their behaviour, social make-up and adaptation to an often hostile environment. Meerkats display almost human qualities, which make them the favourites of many wildlife watchers. This guide will stimulate and satisfy readers, allowing them to share in the world of one of Africa's most endearing animals.
