Zambia; The Bradt Travel Guide, (3rd Edition), Chris McIntyre, Bradt Travel Guides, 2004 An extremely comprehensive, up-to-date and well-written guide to Zambia. Includes detailed information on all destinations and operators, as well as top tips for independent travellers and a wildlife identification section. A one-stop shop for any visitor. The Africa House, Christine Lamb, Viking, 1999 A fascinating account of the life and times of Sir Stewart Gore-Brown, who built Shiwa House and estate in northern Zambia in the early 20th century, and was the first white man to receive Zambian citizenship. A highly readable tale, cleverly crafted from diaries, correspondence and memories. Birds of Southern Africa, Collins Illustrated Checklist, Van Perlo, HarperCollins, 1999 This pocket-sized field guide is stripped down to basics, with accurate illustrations, simple distribution maps and concise identification text.
