First published in 1993, Sasol Birds of Southern Africa is one of the best-selling field guides on the African continent.

- Plates have been redesigned for ease of use and comparison
- Over 380 new illustrations replace previous images
- Illustrations have simplified labels, pinpointing key differentiating features
- Distribution maps have been updated to indicate the relative abundance of the species, along with a bird’s migrant/resident status
- Calendar bars show species’ occurrence and breeding periods
- Sonograms depict the call of difficult-to-distinguish birds that have distinctive calls
The Sasol guide is authored by some of South Africa’s leading ornithologists, including Ian Sinclair (one of Africa’s foremost field birders who has travelled extensively across the Africa for over 35 years), Phil Hockey (Professor at the Percy FitzPatrick Institute of African Ornithology at the University of Cape Town) and Warwick Tarboton (a well-known bird expert and writer who has produced a number of well-received books).
