Ökoführer

Südafrikanische Reiseziele

Dies ist nicht nur ein Reiseführer für Südafrika – die ‚‚Welt in einem Land’’, wie es oft

bezeichnet wird. Der Ökoführer: Südafrikanische Reiseziele bietet Reisenden aus dem Inund

Ausland eine ganze Palette von Möglichkeiten, die außergewöhnliche Schönheit und

Gastfreiheit dieses Landes in sich aufzunehmen und zu erleben.

Südafrika ist ein Land endloser Horizonte, wo man durch ungezähmte – und über Jahrtausende

noch unverschandelte – Natur wandern und das Gebrüll der Löwen hören kann oder den

goldenen Sonnenuntergang in der Stadt des Goldes, eGoli, wie Johannesburg genannt wird,

erleben. Das unterirdische Gold hat die Stadt zum wirtschaftlichen Zentrum des Landes

gemacht; sie ist gebaut auf Felsen, von denen einige fast so alt sind wie die Welt.

Ein Land so vielfältig wie seine Menschen. Hier machen sie Bekanntschaft mit den Kulturen

und Bräuchen der vielseitig begabten Südafrikaner, werden ihnen die unterschiedlichen

Ökoregionen ausführlich erklärt, und sie werden auf alle wichtigen Naturschutzgebiete und

Wildparks aufmerksam gemacht.

Und diejenigen, die einen Adrenalinstoß begehren oder einfach etwas ganz

Außergewöhnliches unternehmen möchten, finden in diesem Führer die besten Stellen für

Bungee-Jumping oder Froschhüpfen, Öko-Bahnreisen oder Restaurants, wo die Palette

einheimischer Gerichte vom Exotischen bis zum Bizarren rangiert.

Eine eigene Löwen-Safari organisieren? Die besten Wasserstellen ausfindig machen? Die

endlose ‚‚Elefanten-Straße’’ anpacken? Einem der vielen Nationalparks einen Besuch abstatten

und dabei jede Minute genießen? Der Ökoführer gibt alle nötigen Einzelheiten an, um

Buchungen vorzunehmen, und der Text unter Reiseziele vermittelt in Provinzen aufgeteilt

alle relevanten Informationen über die verschiedenen Gebiete in Südafrika mit

zahlreichen Reisetipps und Wissenswertem in Info-Kästchen.

August Sycholt lebte und arbeitete für viele Jahre as freiberuflicher Autor und

Fotograf im südlichen Afrika. Seine Berichte konzentrieren sich auf die menschliche

Vielfalt, die einmalige Tierwelt und die faszinierende Landschaft im südlichen Afrika,

deren unberührte Regionen er auf zahllosen Safaris erkundete.

Er ist der Autor und Fotograf vieler Bildbände, einem halben Dutzend

Reiseführer, zahlloser Zeitschriftenartikeln und mehrerer Dokumentarfilme.

Seine Leidenschaft sind die Menschen, die Wildnis und die Landschaft im

südlichen Afrika und unermüdlich richtete er die Aufmerksamkeit auf das

Schicksal der Tiere in der bedrohten Wildnis Afrikas.

Ekogids

Suid-Afrikaanse Bestemmings

Hierdie boek is meer as net ’n toergids van Suid-Afrika of die wêreld-in-een-land, soos mense

dikwels na Suid-Afrika verwys. Ekogids: Suid-Afrikaanse bestemmings bied vir sowel

binnelandse as buitelandse toeriste ’n wye reeks moontlikhede van plekke om te sien en

om die eiesoortige skoonheid en gasvryheid wat sinoniem is met Suid-Afrika te ervaar.

Suid-Afrika is ’n land met onmeetlike horisonne waar ’n mens kan stap in die natuur wat

deur al die millennia nog grootliks ongeskonde is, waar jy kan luister na die gebrul van ’n

leeu, kan kyk hoe die son oor een van die mooiste stede in die wêreld ondergaan, waar jy

kan sien hoe goud uit die dieptes van die aarde gehaal word, die goud wat Egoli geskep

het, die stad Johannesburg, wat die brandpunt is van die ekonomiese krag in Suid-Afrika,

’n stad gebou op rotse so oud soos die aarde self.

Hierdie wonderskone land is net so divers soos die mense wat dit bewoon. Hierdie gids stel

die toeris bekend aan die kultuur en tradisies van Suid-Afrikaners met hulle vele talente,

dit begelei u op ’n toer na die ekostreke van hierdie veelkleurige land, en staan plek-plek

’n oomblik stil om die kollig te laat val op al die vernaamste natuurreservate en parke.

En vir diegene wat hulle adrenalien wil laat opbruis of sommer net iets anders wil ervaar,

sal hierdie gids u neem na plekke waar u kan gaan rekspring of paddaspring! Ekotreinritte

en restaurante waar tradisionele disse wissel van die eksotiese tot die bisarre is ook op die

spyskaart.

Wil u weet hoe om u eie leeusafari te reël? Om die beste watergate op te spoor? Om

die eindelose “Olifantpad” heelhuids te oorleef? Om ’n besoek aan een van die

nasionale parke te beplan en elke minuut van u verblyf daar te geniet? Die

ekoadviseur bevat al die nodige kontakbesonderhede om ’n bespreking te maak,

terwyl die leesstof oor die bestemmings toepaslike inligting oor al die areas in Suid-

Afrika gee. Daar is ook verskeie reiswenke en interessante brokkies.

August Sycholt woon en werk al vir baie jare in Suid-Afrika as ’n vryskutskrywer

en -fotograaf. Sy werk fokus op menslike diversiteit, die unieke diereryk en

die ongerepte landskappe van suidelike Afrika, wat hy op sy vele safari’s

verken het. Hy is die skrywer en fotograaf van verskeie fotografiese boeke,

’n halfdosyn reisgidse, tallose tydskrifartikels en baie dokumentêre films.

Sy passie is mense, die wildernis en landskappe van suidelike Afrika.

Hy beywer hom ook om die wêreld se aandag te vestig op die

lot van die diere in Afrika se bedreigde wildernis.

A Guide to Animal Diseases in South Africa

Game A Guide to Animal Diseases in South Africa – Game covers the most

common diseases and parasites of mammalian wildlife species that are generally

kept on game farms.

Introductory chapters on the species kept by game farmers, the importance

of an ecosystem and the management of game farms, with reference to

the impact on the health of wildlife and management of ‘problem animals’

and the raising of orphaned wildlife species.

A section on diseases prefaced by a discussion of some common noninfectious

conditions such as nutritional problems, trauma and capture

myopathy.

The cause, symptoms, treatment and control measures of specifi c infectious

diseases of herbivores, equids, porcines, and carnivores, with special

reference to those diseases that limit the distribution of wildlife species

because of their impact on commercial livestock farming, are discussed.

Maps of the controlled disease areas are provided. Symptoms or post

mortem lesions for the major diseases are illustrated.

The effect of parasites on various species and the preventative measures

for introducing resistant parasites in particular is discussed, illustrated with

the use of life cycles and photographs.

A section devoted to the causes of poisoning of wildlife, by means of

indigenous and exotic plants, as well as various chemicals.

This is the fi rst comprehensive guide to wildlife diseases to be published in South

Africa specifi cally for game farm owners, game rangers and others involved in the

New

management and handling of wildlife. It contains 190 photographs, illustrations,

maps and parasite life cycles.

Südafrikanische Reiseziele

Dies ist nicht nur ein Reiseführer für Südafrika – die ‚‚Welt in einem Land’’, wie es oft

bezeichnet wird. Der Ökoführer: Südafrikanische Reiseziele bietet Reisenden aus dem Inund

Ausland eine ganze Palette von Möglichkeiten, die außergewöhnliche Schönheit und

Gastfreiheit dieses Landes in sich aufzunehmen und zu erleben.

Südafrika ist ein Land endloser Horizonte, wo man durch ungezähmte – und über Jahrtausende

noch unverschandelte – Natur wandern und das Gebrüll der Löwen hören kann oder den

goldenen Sonnenuntergang in der Stadt des Goldes, eGoli, wie Johannesburg genannt wird,

erleben. Das unterirdische Gold hat die Stadt zum wirtschaftlichen Zentrum des Landes

gemacht; sie ist gebaut auf Felsen, von denen einige fast so alt sind wie die Welt.

Ein Land so vielfältig wie seine Menschen. Hier machen sie Bekanntschaft mit den Kulturen

und Bräuchen der vielseitig begabten Südafrikaner, werden ihnen die unterschiedlichen

Ökoregionen ausführlich erklärt, und sie werden auf alle wichtigen Naturschutzgebiete und

Wildparks aufmerksam gemacht.

Und diejenigen, die einen Adrenalinstoß begehren oder einfach etwas ganz

Außergewöhnliches unternehmen möchten, finden in diesem Führer die besten Stellen für

Bungee-Jumping oder Froschhüpfen, Öko-Bahnreisen oder Restaurants, wo die Palette

einheimischer Gerichte vom Exotischen bis zum Bizarren rangiert.

Eine eigene Löwen-Safari organisieren? Die besten Wasserstellen ausfindig machen? Die

endlose ‚‚Elefanten-Straße’’ anpacken? Einem der vielen Nationalparks einen Besuch abstatten

und dabei jede Minute genießen? Der Ökoführer gibt alle nötigen Einzelheiten an, um

Buchungen vorzunehmen, und der Text unter Reiseziele vermittelt in Provinzen aufgeteilt

alle relevanten Informationen über die verschiedenen Gebiete in Südafrika mit

zahlreichen Reisetipps und Wissenswertem in Info-Kästchen.

südlichen Afrika und unermüdlich richtete er die Aufmerksamkeit auf das

Schicksal der Tiere in der bedrohten Wildnis Afrikas.
