For thousands of travelers, "safari" means vacation memories of a lifetime. This stunning, 200-page tour brings the reader through the greatest safari regions of Africa. Animals, landscape, light, movement; these elements define a safari adventure. Yet in each corner of Africa, a different scenario unfolds. What makes an elephant look different at the base of Kilimanjaro from an elephant in the marshes of Okavango? Why does a lion on the plains of Masai Mara look nothing like his counterpart on the plains of Etosha? How is a camp pitched in Zambia different from a lodge built in Kenya? Safari shows us the many faces of African countries renowned for their safaris: South Africa, Zambia, Botswana, Kenya, and Tanzania.
photographs of natural wildlands and wildlife taken by Art Wolfe. A few pictures
of African tribes people are also to be found amidst captures of lions, elephants,
monkeys, pelicans, and so much more. Africa is recommended for armchair
travelers, nature lovers, and anyone with an interest in the majestic splendor

Serengeti : Natural Order on the African Plain
Spending 18 months on the Serengeti Plain of eastern Africa, Iwago captures in
nearly 300 extraordinary full-color images a world of calm beauty and quick
violence, where the daily drama of life and death for over two million animals is
played against a spectacular landscape.
The Circle of life : Wildlife on the African Savannah
Nature is frozen in its most dramatic moments here: a hyena carries off a dismembered giraffe leg in a light so vivid that one can almost feel the grizzled, torn tendons; lions roar in the act of copulation in a blur that captures the fleeting moment; a martial eagle crouches over a bloody bit of fawn in a photo with startlingly beautiful, painterly colors. The landscape is alive in a photo of two lions watching a coming storm; a spotted hyena. Readers get anthropomorphized wildlife ("Females, it seems, are the shoppers, and males are the sellers") on a regular basis thanks to Animal Planet-not exactly original commentary, but the pictures are awe-inspiring nonetheless. The authors highlight the delicate interdependence of life forms, with a chapter called "Scavengers and Decomposers," and the images themselves argue for the preservation of this vital wilderness
