From 20 odd years of publishing, the African Hunter Magazine has produced several books which cover in detail many aspects of big game hunting in Africa.
Nyati: The Art Of Hunting The African Buffalo by African Hunter Magazine (2003) is a detailed, practical 'how to do it' book on all aspects of buffalo hunting in Africa, particularly Zimbabwe. Biology, habits and internal structure of buffalo, habitat, food species, tracking, rifles, ammunition, bow hunting and much more. An extremely useful book that has become quite hard to find. "This is not a beautiful book intended for the bookshelf - it is one that will be used until dog-eared and worn and which will be hauled from the back-pack time and time again until you are a comfortable buffalo hunter. Unreservedly recommended." Pierre J Van Der Walt.
Hunter's Guide To Bush Medicine by African Hunter Magazine (2013) is a guide for unwary visitors to Africa where the biggest problems are the infectious diseases they are likely to encounter. Forewarned is forearmed and many of these diseases may not be so easy to diagnose once a person is back home. The emphasis of this book is simply raising awareness of what's out there. Compiled from two decades of published material from the African Hunter magazine, written by hunters and bushmen who have been there and done that.
