About this title


Africa's wild cats have long been a focus of fascination and intrigue among travelers and wildlife lovers. Alongside the big three―lion, leopard, and cheetah―Africa is home to another seven species of cats: the caracal, serval, African wildcat, black-footed cat, African golden cat, jungle cat, and sand cat.

With photographer Gerald Hinde's stunning, crisp, graphic images, Luke Hunter presents a comprehensive overview of the entire cat family in Africa―the only place on Earth where sightings of wild cats are a regular occurrence. He discusses in detail feline anatomy, predation and hunting strategies, social systems, competition and conflict, and conservation and threats, offering the reader the most current research and findings.

From the famous and popular African parks with their celebrated, safari-friendly felines, to the few remaining places on the continent uninhabited by humans, Cats of Africa offers superb and exciting images of the animals from a variety of locations, depicting rare and interesting behavior, some of which has never before been recorded.

About the Author:

Luke Hunter is a conservation biologist with the New York–based Wildlife Conservation Society, where he heads the Global Carnivore Program. Hunter, the author of Cheetah, has conducted fieldwork on large cats in Africa since 1992, focusing on efforts to restore species to areas of their former range. Gerald Hinde spent thirty years running a family motor business before shedding his business cares in 1989 for his first love―life in the African bush. He has won numerous photographic awards including the BBC Wildlife Photographer of the Year Award, and was the AFGA Wildlife Awards Overall Winner in 2000. His photographs have been published widely in national and international magazines and appear on postcards, on calendars, and in the books Africa's Big Five, Leopard, and An African Experience.
