Going on Safari, the birds and animals of the Masai Mara National Reserve

To celebrate the upcoming publications, Animals of the Masai Mara & Birds of the Masai Mara, Princeton University Press invites readers to join us on a mini-safari–a sampling of images and text from these two must-have books. Whether you are planning an adventure in Kenya or simply an arm-chair traveler like me, these books are delightful excursions into the wildlife you might encounter in the Masai Mara National Reserve.

Check back frequently for more pictures of the familiar (lions, zebras, masked weavers) and the lesser-known critters (springhare, guereza monkeys, sunbirds and the violet-backed starling) that reside in this popular tourist destination.

Books for travelers to Masai Mara:

Animals of the Masai Mara
