India is home to a remarkable variety of wildlife and is visited by thousands of tourists every year.
Traveller’s Guide Wildlife of India contains photographs and descriptions of 140 species you are likely to encounter either on a holiday or journey around the country.
Although perhaps best known for the Tiger or the Indian Elephant, many other mammals, birds, reptiles, invertebrates, trees and shrubs are also included.
In addition, there is information on India's history, climate, conservation, culture, finding and observing wildlife, and a section on the country's national parks.
