about

A game reserve is not only ideal for viewing animals but it’s also an excellent location from which to study the stars. Stargazing from Game Reserves in Southern Africa is a lively introduction to the night skies, offering visitors to game reserves and nature parks (in fact, any out-of-town location) the opportunity to turn their binoculars skyward after dark, and to make sense of the myriad stars and recognise some of the patterns they form. The author takes readers on a celestial ‘game drive’, directing them towards the ‘Big Five’ constellations of the night sky. He provides clear steps for novice star-watchers to navigate the skies, track the planets, and even spot the moons of Jupiter and possibly the crescent of Venus. No prior knowledge of astronomy is needed to enjoy these introductory excursions into the night skies. Expertly illustrated with colour photographs, wildlife artwork, line drawings and 12 star maps, this book is a welcome addition to the collection of any outdoor enthusiast.
